Shifting Gears is a non-profit creating welcoming recreation experiences that encourage confidence, wellness, growth and joy.
Our inclusive cycling and hiking programs focus on breaking down barriers that stand in the way between a person and their aspirations. By participating in Shifting Gears programs, community members walk away with the tools that they need to attain their recreational goals. Whether it be learning how to change a flat tire, cycling 50 miles, locating accessible trails, finding a hiking partner, setting goals or just remembering how to "play," our aim is to create a welcoming environment for all to join in and learn.
We are looking forward to connecting with people outside who self-identify as women, trans, femme or non-binary. We want to help you feel welcomed, included and part of a movement to diversify the outdoors! Click on the images below to learn more about those trips.
I loved this trip. I felt comfortable while also pushing my boundaries. I felt very well supported.
So fun- the experience lent itself to us getting to know each other organically and it was great!
Amazing!!! I learned, I was challenged, I was empowered! I found a new hobby, and had a fantastically wild time exloring, bonding, laughing and adventuring.
I was intimidated at first, but once I met everyone, got on the bike and cruised it was truly inspiring. everyone was encouraging of each other, patient, and excited which was so fun and helpful.
