World Ride | Ida Long Sleeve Review

World Ride | Ida Long Sleeve Review

Living in Moab, UT and working as a mountain biking guide at Rim Tours, I spend a lot of time outside in the sun. I got an Ida Long Sleeve Shirt last fall and it immediately became the first thing I grabbed out of the laundry to put into my clothing rotation. I get tired of slathering on sunscreen, so having a lightweight and breathable long sleeve to be able to wear when the weather is warm has been a lifesaver. I love that the sleeves are mesh for m ore breathability, yet still keep the sun off my skin. The fabric also moves with me as I tackle challenging terrain. I have worn the Ida on casual rides, as well as big days in warm weather and it has always impressed at how comfortable it is.

When I am not working in Moab, I enjoy traveling with my bike. My travels have taken me around the world and inspired me to found a non-profit called World Ride. The mission is to empower women through mountain biking worldwide. We organize mountain bike trips to the locations that we work in and the proceeds go toward funding the program in that place. For the past few years, I have been working to get more local women mountain biking in Nepal. The program has been a huge success and we have seen Nepali women go from never having ridden a mountain bike to placing third in the downhill nationals. Others have become mountain bike guides and there is a large group that goes for weekly social rides, just for fun. I am very excited to be expanding World Ride to Guatemala this December to work toward the same mission of empowering local women there. Stay tuned for more exciting things to come with World Ride!

Stay Wild Film | Women's Mountain Biking

The mission behind Stay Wild Film is to empower women of all walks of life that they too can get a little rowdy. Empowerment comes from seeing people like yourself doing a powerful thing. The documentary centers itself with the idea that as women we don't have to be well put together, cute and nice. There is a rowdy and wild side in all of us and we want to show others that they too can get a little dirty.
