Bike The Beav Unrace Oct 13th

Come explore new trails by testing your legs and your luck in an UnRace.
ALL PROCEEDS TO BE DEDICATED TO LOCAL TRAIL MAINTENANCE IN 2019 SEASON.
Beyond good times, community, and a celebration of the 5 miles of great singletrack we’ve built together, this event is here to raise funds to improve maintenance and care of our local trail networks.
The Trails Cache and Cache Trails Alliance 501c3 have organized this event to raise funds that will directly fund Utah Conservation Corps Crews maintaining and improving trails we know and love in the 2019 season.  Purchase your ticket today for a chance to help us prioritize which trail care projects get dedicated work crews next year.
