Giving Back

Let's chat about riding bikes for a second...We're lucky that there are a very small group of people all over the world, building, managing, advocating, developing and working hard so that you can smile as you ride down that brown, wiggly worm of singletrack. Ted and team are well versed in this, and are committed to being a fully tenured operator and steward for the trails used in the event.

This event was actually created to provide a source of management to a few cherished trails around the Revelstoke area which were in need of some love. The event, thanks to it's participants, is able to use the revenue to coordinate trail work, collect baseline impact data and so much more, to learn more check out our Giving Back Page.

 

I'm committed to making local communities better, and as such, for this event, and here's how:

  • 2017 - We coordinate and funded more than $15,000 in trail work on the Cartier Mountain Trail, the largest work project on that trail in more than 15 years.
    The total amount of work exceeded $25,000 thanks to our lovely supporters!

  • 2017 - We upped our donation to the local club RCA from $1500 for the use of Boulder MTN to $2500.

  • 2018 - We will be donating $10,000 to the RCA for trail projects.

  • 2018 - We'll be dedicating $8,000 of work into the Cartier Trail, which we will likely see our partners contribute too!
