How Lindsay Goldman will #LeadHerForward

By: Lindsay Goldman  January 28, 2020

Sports are much more than just a game or just a competition. Sports are an opportunity to learn more about yourself and develop skills that will benefit you in and out of competition. National Girls and Women in Sports Day is all about celebrating and encouraging the involvement of females in sports, so more women can emerge as leaders in sports and life. At USA Cycling, we are lucky to have so many talented and passionate women that are committed to connecting girls and women to sports. Here’s what they have to say about their experiences in sports and how they use their love for sports to enact change.

Lindsay Goldman, Director of Marketing & Membership

"I'm a cyclist, mother, wife, and the Director of Marketing & Membership at USA Cycling (although not necessarily in that order). Bikes have been a huge part of my life for the last 13 years; I started by riding trails, dabbled in cyclocross, switched to the road after a few years, built somewhat of a career there, and am now mixing gravel events into my race schedule. My experience in professional cycling led me to found and running the Hagens Berman Supermint Women's Pro Cycling Team from 2016-2019, which was the most incredible experience for learning how to work with, inspire, and lead strong female athletes.

Cycling, racing, team ownership, and juggling the challenges of being an athlete with daily life obligations have shaped me into the person, mother, and leader I am today and I'm so grateful for these opportunities and learning experiences. I'm constantly surrounded by women on and off the bike who inspire and motivate me to keep going in the face of adversity, embrace my strengths and imperfections, and be fearless in the pursuit of goals. I hope to inspire my daughter and other women and girls to face challenges without fear, go after what they want, and show up to rides with the confidence to crush souls with their legs and lungs."

History of the Celebration from Women's Sports Foundation

"The Women’s Sports Foundation was established in 1974 to advance the lives of women and girls through sports and physical activity. February 5, 2020, marks the 34th Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD). This celebration inspires girls and women to play and be active, to realize their full power. The confidence, strength and character gained through sports participation are the very tools girls and women need to become strong leaders in sports and life."
