What is GRiT?
The Girls Riding Together (GRiT) initiative is an effort by the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) to recruit and retain more girls and woman coaches in NICA programs. The goal of the NICA GRiT initiative is to increase the overall participation rate to 33% female riders (coaches and student-athletes each) by 2023.
The Madison East/Sun Prairie East/Sun Prairie West/Deforest/Sun Prairie Composite Mountain Bike Teams are sponsoring a free clinic for girls and women to try out mountain biking and ride with others at the amazing Sheehan Park trails in Sun Prairie. Free demo mountain bikes will be provided by DreamBikes if you do not have a trail-ready mountain bike you can bring with you. The event is open to girls entering 6th through 12th grade and women who want to learn more and who might consider coaching. No experience required! We can train you in riding and coaching skills. You just need to have a passion for supporting girls and getting more girls outside, on bikes!
If you have never tried mountain biking, or if you have your own mountain bike but never ridden it on singletrack before, sign up below for a fun day of games, prizes, girl power, and riding bikes in the woods!
