Heather Kinal

Finance Chair

Heather fell in love with mountain biking in 2017, at which point she immediately began to seek out other female riders and encouraged many more to join her on the trails. Seeing the mental and physical health benefits along with experiencing the increasing self-confidence, she wanted everyone to experience mountain biking! She created a local women’s group and later the online Sisters in Singletrack community.

Heather is also the co-founder and CFO of Cosmic Dirt, a size inclusive mountain bike apparel company as well as the creator of Rooted, a mountain bike festival for women in Western New York.

Joining the World Ride board of directors felt like a great way to serve the global community and to keep on her mission to get #moregirlsonbikes!
