Film Contest

And the winners are...

1st place: Flying Squirrels and Radical Rippers by Skye Schillhammer

This film is about two girls mountain bike programs in Bellingham, WA, the Flying Squirrels and the Radical Rippers and what they are doing to get more young girls into the sport. 


Tied for 2nd Place: Guatemala Women's Bike Library by Chris Gwinner

"This film was created to showcase Guatemala's first women's bike library and the women that have been getting involved. It's been amazing to learn the stories of the women, see them enjoying the mountain bikes, and building such great camaraderie in the weekly groups rides. We hope this video shares a bit of that with the World Ride community."
