Our Story

goRide started in 2014 with two friends who rode bikes with their two young families around Nelson, NZ. These two friends are Annette & Jo.  Both of our families made great memories along the way but often it was hard and at times we didn’t feel like we were getting better at what we were trying to do.  Where was the help and support for women or families choosing to ride?   Why at times did we lack confidence, feel unsafe and feel we had no options? It felt like it was easier not to ride than to choose riding. This is the experience goRide grew from.
