Come join us in Lake Tahoe!!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Little Big Ridestyle Event
What is the Little Big? It is an all level ride style bike skills clinic for women followed by a competition to be held at the new progressive Truckee Bike Park in Truckee, CA on September 27th & 28th, 2014.
Our motto is “it’s never too late to live a happy childhood” so we make a strong effort to make our clinics fun and educational at the same time. Our students cover a wide age span ranging from 11 years to 50. Hence the name, The Little Big: little women, big women, little jumps, big jumps, little progressions, big progression. We also have events and competition for the youngest “Lil’s” with our strider track.
Our event strategy is two fold. First and foremost…to grow the sport in the women’s world by teaching women to be comfortable on their bike, have fun, and create a foundation of fundamentals to progress in their riding taught by a high level of female coaches.
The goal is to reach women in all parts of the world and grow the clinics and competitions to be bigger with more participants every year. There will be teaching assistants mentoring and learning so they can get certified to teach. This will grow the number of educated women teaching the sport. The impact of this will change the sport and balance out the male female influence.
Secondly, we want to pay it forward and support the world class, Truckee Bike Park. The goal of the Truckee Bike Park is to create an easily accessible bike environment where “kids” of all ages (2 – 80!) can get out on the bike (at no cost) and have fun together, multi-generational bridge.
All proceeds of the Little Big will be donated to the continued expansion of the bike park. The bike park is a 100% grass roots, non-profit organization, under the umbrella of Truckee Parks and Rec. – comprised of local bikers trying to give back to the community they love.
