Mountain biking is a great tool for building a healthy community that supports people and helps them grow and develop. Whether it’s surrounding our youth, helping someone become active for the first time in their life, or walking beside someone through a pivotal life moment, the relationships built around mountain biking have impact beyond recreation. Trailstoke’s Director, Kevin, invests in projects, programs, and relationships that build the mountain bike community and the connections it fosters. Trail advocacy, bike parks, youth teams, racing, group rides, and riding with friends are all things we believe build the mountain bike community.
We can help your community through skills clinics, leadership training, risk management planning, and consulting on mountain bike trails and skills parks.
Here are some local programs that we serve with:
