“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” Ghandi may not have been talking about women in mountain biking specifically, but this is exactly what we need to do. We could debate endlessly about how to get more women into riding but there is one simple technique that is so obvious it is often overlooked or dismissed; introduce a woman to the sport.

Hell, Eddy Merckx would have a hard time living up to Eddy Merckx.
Spring is pretty late in France this year so our trails are still wet. It’s not a good reason to let the bike stay in the garage.
