|Lindsey Voreis - Bio|
Lindsey Voreis has a mission... Change women's lives with two wheels and some dirt.
As a certified skills instructor through PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor) and IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) ICP (Instructor Certification Program), Lindsey Voreis spreads her passion for mountain biking by teaching skills clinics across the globe.
After losing sight of her fitness, Lindsey began racing Cross-Country mountain bikes in 1995 and soon after raced Downhill and currently races Enduros. In 2003, Lindsey and her professional mountain biker husband, Kirt Voreis developed the AllRide Tour where they traveled North America promoting mountain biking as brand ambassadors, skills instructors, and racers. They also sponsored and mentored kids to give them life experiences and opportunities in the bike industry.
During her travels Lindsey noticed a distinct void in women’s participation in mountain biking. She also realized through her own experiences on the bike that mountain biking is like life with ups and downs, finding balance and overcoming challenges. She has creatively applied that knowledge to her teaching and has a unique way of breaking down skills in an easy to understand, positive and entertaining way. Lindsey says, “I teach people how to give their bikes life and help them develop a deeper relationship with the sport.” Her tagline: "Ladies AllRide: Ride Bikes. Be Happy."
*Reality TV Experience:
In 2001 Lindsey had an incredible life-changing experience on the popular television show, Survivor: Africa. She traveled the globe on a media talk show blitz and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Howard Stern, Late Late show w/Craig Kilborn, Regis and Kelly and Hollywood Squares among others. She attended celebrity charity events and was in an Eminem music video. But after watching herself on TV and not being thrilled with what she saw, it caused her to reevaluate herself. She credits mountain biking as the tool that helped her "see the light" and become a better person.In 2003 Lindsey and her husband Kirt created The Allride Tour, a tour dedicated to promoting the mountain bike lifestyle through creative avenues. For more than a decade they have traveled North America in an RV racing, promoting sponsor's products, sponsoring kids, teaching clinics and stoking people out on bikes. When home in Bend, OR Lindsey is either teaching private clinics, both XC and Downhill on Mt Bachelor or guiding multi-day mountain bike adventures for Cog Wild Mountain Bike Tours. In the winter she is snowboarding or skiing every powder day, skate skiing, copywriting and laying low with her pit bulls and husband Kirt.
