Shannon Galpin

Shannon Galpin is the founder of Mountain2Mountain, a non-for-profit organization that helps women in conflict zones. She is also a producer of the upcoming documentary Afghan Cycles. In 2015, the International Olympic Committee awarded Ms. Galpin an Honorary Achievement Diploma for her work promoting gender equity through sport. 

The Afghan women who ride today are pedaling a revolution. It may take decades before they normalize cycling for all girls, but with every pedal stroke they are standing up for their rights and inspiring others to do the same.
