As mountain bikers we love trails, whether buffed smooth or steep and rocky.  Luckily the Bitterroot Valley is surrounded by hundreds of miles of trails.  So many trails that the Forest Service has a challenge keeping them all open and useable.  That's where the Bitterroot Backcountry Cyclists come in.  Saws in tow, we clear, repair and sometimes  build new trails.

Last year on National Trails Day we cleared 30 miles of trails on and around Warm Springs Ridge including nearly the entire lengths of Warm Springs Ridge, Fire Creek, Porcupine Creek, and Warm Springs Creek to Two Good Cabin. Over the course of the summer we cleared over 80 miles of trails that were impassable due to dead fall.  Trails you love whether on bike, horse, or on foot

In addition, working with the Bitterroot Backcountry Horsemen we rebuilt a stream crossing in Coyote Coulee, and working with Como Trails we built a new trail to improve loops for cross country skiing in the winter and biking in the summer.

This year we will be out again with chainsaws, handsaws and lopers clearing off the winters downfall, and with shovels and pulaskis making other trails more sustainable and resilient. 

Please join us at the Bitterroot Brewery on May xx [time]… Funds raised will support our 100% volunteer efforts to keep the trails clear with the purchase of equipment and supplies.
