Lindsey grew up in Portland, Oregon where outdoor activities were just part of the daily routine. She spent her youth equestrian show jumping horses, skiing, snowboarding, playing soccer, basketball, running cross country and track and riding her bike. She has a BA in Journalism from the University of Arizona, and took her skills first to sports marketing, then to the advertising and public relations world in Portland.
In 2001 Lindsey had an incredible life-changing experience on the popular television show, Survivor: Africa. She traveled the globe on a media talk show blitz and appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Howard Stern, Late Late show w/Craig Kilborn, Regis and Kelly and Hollywood Squares among others. She attended celebrity charity events and was in an Eminem music video. But after watching herself on TV and not being thrilled with what she saw, it caused her to reevaluate herself. She credits mountain biking as the tool that helped her "see the light" and become a better person.In 2003 Lindsey and her husband Kirt created The Allride Tour, a tour dedicated to promoting the mountain bike lifestyle through creative avenues. For more than a decade they have traveled North America in an RV racing, promoting sponsor's products, sponsoring kids, teaching clinics and stoking people out on bikes. When home in Bend, OR Lindsey is either teaching private clinics, both XC and Downhill on Mt Bachelor or guiding multi-day mountain bike adventures for Cog Wild Mountain Bike Tours. In the winter she is snowboarding or skiing every powder day, skate skiing, copywriting and laying low with her pit bulls and husband Kirt.
