Over 80 guys and gals showed up for TORCA's premier of "Sisterhood of Shred",a film about women in mountain biking by Liv rider Meg Valliant Patillo. Our hosts at Tucson Hop Shop were amazing and the outdoor venue was super special, with beautiful sunsets, beer, and food trucks! Bell Joy Ride ladies even hosted a pre-movie ride on Urban Assault trail!
This fundraiser was sponsored by Liv Cycling, with special thanks to Old Pueblo Gymnastics Academy, Bicycle Ranch, Club Ride Apparel, Summit Hut, Sambazon, Bike Magazine, and Ladies Allride Mountain Bike Skills. There were so many prizes we literally couldn't give them all away! All proceeds went directly to trail work in Tucson. Thanks for supporting mountain biking in Tucson, and women who shred!

ABOUT THE FILM
The Sisterhood of Shred is a community of women riders that motivate each other in their daily lives and push their personal limits while supporting each other emotionally, physically, and socially. Finding women who are free riders, dirt jumpers, and skate park riders can be hard; however, these women use various methods to establish connections and build community through outreach by using social media, videos, as well as hosting their own women’s events. Doing this allows these women a place to go where they feel accepted while simultaneously building skills, confidence, and lasting friendships which spread to these women’s other social networks. This has led to a dramatic increase in the amount of women riders who are seeking out more female oriented events and people who share these commonalities. From all walks of life and different points around the globe, each woman has different reasons for taking part in the Sisterhood but ultimately seemed to find what they never knew they were looking for; a supportive woman oriented community.
