Co-owners Julie and Nelson Oldham are re-upping their commitment to the community they value so highly. To express their gratitude over the next 52 weeks, Dos Gringos is pledging $11,000 cash in a giving campaign leading up until the 20th anniversary on 11/11/20 a year from now. Every week DOS will spotlight one of the many non-profits in the Roaring Fork Valley that do such admirable work and make a cash donation to each based on sales that week.
This week (December 30 – January 5) RFMBA will be the recipient. So feel free to double up on your burrito order and support more trails!
The U.S. Forest Service plans to begin review of a key segment of the Carbondale to Crested Butte Trail early next year.
Pitkin County Open Space and Trails submitted a plan to the White River National Forest for a 7-mile stretch of the trail from the town of Redstone to the summit of McClure Pass. About 5 miles of that section is on national forestland so it must go through review under the National Environmental Policy Act.
RFMBA supports this section of trail and advocates for a singletrack multiple use trail.
Congratulations to Keith Kiggins who’s selected an SB100 for the grand prize!
But Keith isn’t the only winner.
Everyone who purchased raffle tickets helped to improve the mountain bike trail system in the Roaring Fork Valley. So in a way, your contribution makes us all winners in the long run!
So the next time you are able to put knobbies to dirt on one of the awesome Roaring Fork trails we hope you feel proud that your raffle ticket purchase helped to create and sustain the very trail you are shredding.
So congratulations again to Keith and the mountain bike community and a hearty thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets this summer!
Thanks to Yeti Cycles & Basalt Bike & Ski for making the raffle possible. This has been a successful fundraiser to support RFMBA’s mission to create and sustain the best possible mountain bike trails and experiences in the Roaring Fork valley and beyond!
See you on the trails!
The 2019 Yeti RFMBA Bike Raffle was conducted under Colorado Raffle License #2019-14664
