The Amy D. Foundation bio picture
  • About Amy

    Amy Alison Dombroski passed tragically at age 26 while training abroad in Belgium. She was a versatile cyclist with U23 National Championship titles in road, mountain, and cyclocross. Still early in her career, she was considered by many in the sport to be a rising talent and serious contender at world-class cycling events.

    In her short but full life, Amy touched the hearts of communities in the United States and Europe. Amy had a passion for life that transcended the sport of cycling; she loved to share this passion with the friends and family that surrounded her. She also had an uncanny ability to transform challenges she faced in her own life into intense positive focus. The tattoo of a lighting bolt that Amy bore on her wrist served as a remembrance of her mother’s tragic death, and provided her a daily source of motivation.

Thank you so much to the GiddyUP! Film Tour for your support and $2,000 donation!

Check out the schedule to view the film!


GiddyUP! Film Tour brings bicycle lovers together for a unique social event featuring the best in mountain bike cinema. Each event kicks off an hour or so before show time so you can knock back a cold one, catch up with riding buddies, check out the latest gear and talk about ride plans for the coming season.

Once the curtain opens, GiddyUP! Film Tour unveils exclusive content from around the globe showcasing exactly why we all love to ride… A love of tight and twisty singletrack, nailing that tricky technical section perfectly, grinding out a solid effort all the way to the top of a climb or simply shedding all the stress from a long day in the office.

Doing good, Feels good. That’s our mantra.

At the end of our 2015 tour, we donated $2,000 to Amy D Foundation to help support their efforts to empower girls and young women in cycling.

We love local bike shops. They are the lifeblood of our sport, and they need our support to thrive and survive. We also love having access to great trails. IMBA has been the leading trail advocacy organization for mountain bikers since 1988. We partner with local shops and IMBA chapters and affiliates wherever possible to ensure that a portion of our proceeds goes right back into the local bike community building trails and supporting advocacy efforts.

Check out our upcoming tour schedule and c’mon out and join us… Giddyup!
