Race Vista proudly supports and collaborates with like-minded organizations and initiatives, particularly those that promote the goals of getting more people on bikes and making cycling more attractive to every age, gender, and level of rider.  As a result, we’re thrilled to introduce our collaboration with the Yeti Beti team, the Beti Bike Bash event, and the Beti AllRide Clinic.

The Beti umbrella covers a wide array of well-coordinated and exciting women-centric cycling endeavors.  They consider themselves one big happy family of races, events, clinics, and team initiatives, including the Beti Bike Bash in June (more below), Beti AllRide Clinics in spring and summer, and Team YetiBeti’s racing and off-seasons shenanigans.

Why are Race Vista and the Yeti Betis collaborating?

Race Vista has long supported the visual media of cycling and races, and we’ve been an advocate for women’s cycling, realizing that neither the playing field nor the media attention offered to women’s cycling is level with what is offered to the men.  Race Vista’s platform helps showcase some of the races, events, athletes, and initiatives that deserve additional recognition, so our alignment with the Yeti Beti crew is a natural fit.
What will this collaboration offer?

Primarily, we’re hopeful that our combined efforts make cycling more visible, more exciting, and more engaging to all audiences, young or old, man or woman, veteran racer or novice beginner.  We’ll start small but our effort may expand over time as we receive feedback from what people would like to see more (or less) of.  We’ll have real-time photo galleries, a unique social media page, and info about all things Beti.  Scroll down to find the photos, and find more about the Beti initiatives below that.  Here’s an overview:

The Beti Bike Bash has been the first women’s only mountain bike race in Colorado since 2010. Now in its fifth consecutive year, we strive to grow women’s mountain biking in unprecedented ways. What originally started as a vision for a race that would bring more women to the start line than ever before with a no-barriers, fun, and encouraging atmosphere, has turned into a community driven to spark a lifelong passion in every woman no matter the age, ability or experience. The Beti Bike Bash’s primary goal is to make the “first” race experience a positive one, that will give women the confidence to pursue their goals and dreams, on and off the bike. The 2014 Beti Bike Bash will take place on June 1, 2014 at Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, Colorado will not only boast one of the largest pro payout for women’s racing in the state but also be one of the largest attended women’s only cycling events in the country.

Race Vista has set up an interactive slideshow for the event, using the hashtag #bbbrv in Instagram.  See the real-time photo slideshow (on this page above) and be sure to add your photos whether you’re there to race, hang out, volunteer, spectate, or just be part of the fun.  If you can’t be there in person, Race Vista’s photo slideshow collaboration with the Beti Bike Bash is the next best thing!  Be sure to ask any friends or family who are going to tag photos so you can see it all here!

The Beti AllRide Clinic was founded in 2013 from a synergy of passion for mountain biking, and a unified vision to bring them together and get more women hooked on mountain biking for life. As the sister-event to the Beti Bike Bash women’s mountain bike race, the Beti AllRide’s Clinic’s mission is: “To inspire women to find their greatest potential through mountain biking and create riders for life.”

What sets the Beti AllRide Clinic apart from other women’s clinics out there is the “Ladies AllRide” philosophy that connects women with their bikes at a deeper level. It is not a matter of showing up to go through the motions; it is harnessing the “inner rider” of each participant through inspiring coaching trained to guide each participant in finding the confidence within to tackle the obstacle in front of them with safe skills and practice to accompany it. Through this method, the Beti AllRide Clinics helps women take their understanding of balance to a whole new level.
The Beti AllRide Clinic will be traveling to Sedona, ArizonaAngel Fire, New MexicoKeystone, Colorado; and Crested Butte, Colorado in 2014. You can find all of the details for each location at www.betiallrideclinic.com. Keep your eyes and ears open for future locations and feel free to give us a shout!
