⭐️2021 Call for Applicants⭐️
Ride Like a Girl is now accepting applications from BC athletes for the 2021 mentorship program. This season, up to fifteen female mountain bike athletes between the ages of 12 to 18 years old will have the opportunity to be matched with pro-athletes in their cycling discipline.
Ride Like a Girl offers athletes the opportunity to connect with other athletes their age, be matched with a mentor, and participate in events such as group rides, trail days and skills clinics. To adjust to the circumstances with the pandemic, in 2020, Ride Like a Girl introduced monthly mentor chats using Zoom on a wide range of topics including sports nutrition, overcoming obstacles, fears and setbacks, bike maintenance, goal setting, mental preparation & core strength. Back by popular demand, the mentor chats will be an integral part of the 2021 program.
Ride Like a Girl is accepting applications until February 28, 2021. Interested athletes must be between the ages of 12 to 18 years old, live in British Columbia, and have some racing/freeriding experience. Community involvement including coaching, trail building, helping with races and events, and other volunteer pursuits are an asset for applicants.
For more info and to apply, please visit ridelikeagirl.ca

Sometimes in the summer months it’s hard to take the time off your bike to give it a little love.
But snow season = bike love season! ❤️ 🚲
Brake Bleeding! Doesn’t have to be messy and complicated, but does big time improve your bikes feel on the trails.
Flushing the system ensures all air bubbles are removed.
If brakes aren’t bled and there are air bubbles trapped in the brake fluid, hydraulic pressure drops.
This makes your brakes significantly less efficient!
*things to know!!*
What kind of fluid you need, there are two kinds.
DOT and mineral oil. Most bike brakes use mineral oil.
Ask your LBS (local bike shop) what you need to do this at home 👍🏼
*what your flushing out of the system?*
Dirt, air and water can contaminate the system. You may notice dirty oil or bubbles in the oil you’ve removed. That’s good! 👍🏼
Also, favourite pro tip is regular bike washing!
Washing your bike is time to check in with it. Looking at your components and frame more often is a chance to keep things in good repair. In the mucky winter it’s hard to see what’s going on under all that mud!
With the confidence your bike is in good repair you’re more confident to send it 🤘🏼
UROC has just launched a Trail user survey for 2021 and would like to hear from all of us. Here is a quick survey and all participants are anonymous. Thanks everyone! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/B3VBH3V

What do you carry when you head out for a solid ride for trail side mechanics? We make sure we have what we need when we are out on the trails coaching our clients. Some important items we carry, tube, @oneupcomponents EDC pump and multi tool, plug and pliers kits, bacon 🥓 of course, extra quick link, Co2, tire boot (just in case) tire lever and gauge, derailleur hanger (compatible for your bike) brake rotor tool, tape, zap ties, and a back up multi tool. We also carry a very extensive first aid kit that we hope we never need to use. Safety never takes a break! Be prepared!

Unfortunately, crashing is a part of our sport.
It's not easy to come back from injury, but it’s the athletes that are willing to put in the work that come back stronger!
Being surrounded by the right people and having a supportive team helps too!
Gravity MTB Director of Strength and Conditioning, Janna Mackenzie-Scott has been working with Patrick Laffey since he got the go-ahead!
They’re not taking any short cuts and we’re stoked to see Patrick getting ready to race the 2021 World Cup Downhill circuit for Devinci Bikes.
