Janie Welsh

Events and Fundraising Co-Chair

When Janie first rode a mountain bike, she knew she had found something special. She followed World Ride on Instagram for a few years; totally in love with their mission to empower women through mountain biking. She then jumped at the opportunity to become an ambassador in 2021, and eventually landed on the board this year.

Janie works as a program manager for an all-women’s adventure travel organization, and has a passion for traveling, meeting people, and eating food all around the world. Janie is a PMBIA Level 1 mountain bike instructor, and loves to show women that can do anything they put their minds to. Her greatest accomplishment on a bike is completing a month-long solo bikepacking trip around her home state of Vermont, or that one time she almost fully did a bunny hop.
