The Cycle Effect
The Cycle Effect is a non profit initiative which helps girls grow into strong young women by offering them a beginners’ mountain biking program and showing those girls they not only have what it takes to conquer trails but everything they need to find success in life.
The Cycle Effect’s mission is empowering young women through mountain biking to achieve brighter futures and build stronger communities.
The Cycle Effect focuses on three primary goal areas: physical wellness; community impact and mentorship; and building brighter futures. By providing an opportunity for at-risk girls to be engaged in regular, healthy programs that help build their self-esteem and promotes overall wellness, girls are more likely to be healthier, stay engaged in school and set goals that will support their future. The girls come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. Some might have faced financial hardships; some have dealt with other disadvantages. The uniting factor isn’t the life experiences, rather, it’s that the girls all want to ride mountain bikes, and the coaches and volunteers at The Cycle Effect have proven they can make that happen.
