Celebrating G.R.I.T.

G.R.I.T. is a 6-week after-school program for middle school girls that was developed to empower young women with knowledge and skills for mountain-biking, route-planning, bike maintenance, public speaking, and bike-packing.  The program was founded by Lael Wilcox and Cait Rodriguez and is supported by female mentors in the community, as well as various sponsors and local businesses.  Begich has been a part of GRIT since it's foundation we're happy that our girls have this great opportunity!
