Giving Tuesday

This year we have provided mountain bike outings to close to 400 youth, donated countless bikes and helmets to local youth and youth organizations and made an impact that will sometimes not reach its full potential until year down the road.

The good news is, we are in it for the long haul and look forward to the impact we have on our mountain communities.

Today is Giving Tuesday, and we can’t think of a better way to give, than to give locally.  I don’t usually give this kind of plea, so I apologize, but we could use a little help reaching our year end fundraising goals.

Please consider helping, every little bit counts.  Below are two ways you can help.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

Happy Anniversary

Celebrate with us today as we look back over the past 3 yrs of providing mountain bike outings to youth who would not otherwise have that opportunity.   3 yrs ago today we took a leap of faith and in return we received and continue to receive an unexpected outpouring of support from our WNC community!

Thanks for all you have done to help us accomplish our goals!
