“This is mountain biking! It’s not chemistry class!”
Ladies, if you are in the Seattle area this Thursday evening, stop by Saint Andrews Bar & Grill at 6 pm to see the world premiere of If She Can Do It. Or if you are anywhere else in the world, watch it on Pink Bike at 6pm PT.
The documentary, shot by film maker Mark Brent, known for Awesome Land, was filmed at Sugar Showdown this past July at Duthie Hill Park in Issaquah, WA. The event was hosted by Kat Sweet of Sweetlines, a service dedicated to the coaching, training and empowering of women through mountain bike courses and events. The event itself was a women-specific two-day clinic and competition focusing on providing a supportive environment while bringing women’s freeriding to the forefront.
Watch women from across the country come together to push their fears aside and to learn what it is like to crush it on a mountain bike. It is inspirational to see women just like yourself take it to the next level, doing things on a bike they never thought they would do. It is one thing to follow your man on the trail and write off not doing the tricks he does “because he’s a guy” and it is something totally different to be surrounded by women and think, “well, if she can do it…” Next thing you know, you are flying off that drop-off and landing it better than any dude.
