Lindsey Voreis, Coach
Sweetlines/Clif Bar ON-TRAIL ENDURO SKILLS CLINIC
Lindsey grew up in Portland, Oregon where outdoor activities were just part of the daily routine. She spent her youth equestrian show jumping horses, skiing, snowboarding, playing soccer, basketball, running cross country and track and riding her bike. She has a BA in Journalism from the University of Arizona, and took her skills first to sports marketing, then to the advertising and public relations world in Portland.
In 2001 Lindsey had an incredible life-changing experience on the popular television show, Survivor: Africa. Watching herself on TV caused her to reevaluate who she was and helped her redefine herself through biking and self-exploration.
Lindsey has raced many disciplines of mountain bikes since 1996 and currently handles most of the business behind The Allride Tour, a tour dedicated to promoting the mountain bike lifestyle. When home in Bend, Lindsey is either teaching clinics or guiding 3-day mountain bike adventures for Cog Wild Mountain Bike Tours in Bend, OR.
COACHING: Lindsey is in high demand to teach women’s clinics all over North America. She is PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor) certified as well as IMIC (International Mountain Bike Instructor Certification) certified. Teaching is her true calling. She is passionate about teaching because she knows it will vastly improve confidence and provide a better understanding of the relationship between riders and their bikes.
She has a unique style of teaching that integrates bike/life metaphors into her program and she creates confident, knowledgeable riders. She inspires women of all ages to enjoy bikes on a deeper level and loves coaching almost as much as riding epic trails around the world.
“I believe mt biking brings out one’s true colors. You can learn so much about yourself and your ability to persevere and overcome obstacles. When you learn how to progress in a physically demanding, intimidating sport like mt biking, you will have a newfound belief in your abilities and hopefully a strong desire to keep progressing. Trust me, one session with me will change the way you see mountain biking as I teach you how to give your bike life!”- Lindsey Voreis
