As a volunteer, not-for-profit charity organization, our work includes the revitalization and continued maintenance of this trail network, adapting trails to sustainable trail building standards and improving connectivity through new trail projects. We work to provide challenge and progression to users while fostering our mountain bike culture and community as a positive and progressive force. As more and more users head to the trail every year, your support is needed now more than ever to ensure that we can ensure the keep up with wear and tear, trail erosion, storm damage and the ravage of time.

The trails mean many things to many people. For many, they are simply a place to escape from the world for a bit, while many others see them as a place for fitness, fun, forest bathing and much much more. But the core of what trails are is community for without community, the trails would not exist.

As long as there is community, there will always be trails.

Trails for all. Trails Forever.

Thank you to all four Sponsors for giving the community the chance to win some excellent prizes!
