A passion for nature, physical fitness and advocating for empowered women, is the motivation behind developing STS.
It is my vision to mentor young girls towards healthy and positive lifestyle choices through the sport of fat biking. Assisting them in the development of life skills that can be utilized outside of riding, such as: marketing and promotional projects for the team, trail building, environmental awareness, public speaking, grant research and development, fundraiser events, community volunteering, and advocating for young women’s growth in non-traditional roles.

It is my passion to support and encourage young women to not only challenge themselves physically but experience the many benefits of a healthy active lifestyle. Helping the girls figure out what it means to support and be supported by team mates and sisters on the trail and off. Encouraging girls to deal with challenges and stress in a healthy way, creating habits that will serve them well throughout their lives.

I am originally from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and a graduate of Michigan Technological University. Having spent a substantial portion of my life exploring and working in the outdoors I have an appreciation for the peace, solitude and strength it can offer. I have also enjoyed staying physically active swimming, biking and running. Not long ago I discovered trail riding and fell in love with it. This led me to STS.
STS is a great opportunity for young women to get outdoors, be active and experience the camaraderie a team environment can provide. I believe these experiences will increase their self-awareness and aid in developing many important life skills such as; confidence, problem solving and independence. These attributes will also empower them as women and last a lifetime. I am pleased to be able to support these talented young women.
My husband, Brian, and I have four children and reside in Cadillac, Michigan.
Sandy Rivard Director and Secretary for STS, Retired Teacher/Lifelong Educator
I am an active person who enjoys spending as much time possible outdoors. As a female who became active and an athlete later in life, I am excited to be involved with the Single Track Sisters Fat Bike Team Mission.
Encouraging young women to be healthy and active through the sport of fat biking results in other life long benefits. I have witnessed the girls on the team become confident, outgoing, stronger physically and in spirit. It has been wonderful to see the girls become closer and supportive of one another, not only on the trail, but in other aspects of their lives. The team’s participation at races over the past year is helping to grow the sport of fat bike racing for all women, rather than having them as an add-on in a male dominated sport.
Doug Schneider Director and Bike Maintenance for STS, retired Optometrist
I graduated from Ohio State University, but was quick to add that his undergraduate degree is from U of M.
I’ve had a long term love affair with all things cycling. A hip condition forced me to stop running in my 40’s. Fortunately, my hip didn’t mind cycling. I commuted by bike, being driven off the roads only by winter’s worst. I completed numerous centuries as well as four Lumberjack off road centuries. Among my fondest memories are several cycling trips I took with my son to Colorado.
Along the way, I have picked up a few bike maintenance skills from my son, who worked his way through college as a part time bike mechanic. Helping the STS team maintain their bikes is one way for me to give back to Cadillac’s cycling community. I’m excited to see so many young girls involved in the sport. Brothers, boy friends, and even parents may even get inspired to start riding, helping to ensure a strong future for cycling in Cadillac.
