Dig-Ride-Give to Protect your trails

Next year could be off the charts for Evergreen, and as the new Statewide Board President, I have big boots to fill and I'm grateful to be part of this exciting time.

I moved to the Seattle area 12 years ago knowing the mountain biking would be amazing, even back then. I spent the first year digging some of the initial trails at Duthie Bike Park and riding the three trails at Tiger Mtn.

Fast forward to 2021, and Washington state has made its mark, as a destination and paradise for riders across the country.


This transformation did not happen on its own and took an incredible amount of time, hard work, and dedication from Evergreen and partners along the way. The result is trails we all ride and love. Projects like Raging River, Number 2 Canyon, Thrillium and Mt. Spokane take years of planning, fundraising and building. Your financial support will help us continue building and maintaining more trails to ensure Washington stays the best place to ride.

Right now, the 2022 outlook is bright, and we expect to be even busier, with nearly 70 live projects, in various stages of planning, maintenance or construction.  We are going big, and growth means more crew, more equipment, and even more STOKE! To make this happen, we need your help to raise $185,000 before December 31st to ensure we are ready to go!

Can I count on you to help?

Your donation, at any level, results in great trails for so many.Our sport is growing and becoming more diverse in our social makeup, ride preferences and needs.Evergreen is committed to embracing ALL riders and ALL ridesand creating opportunities for more communities to experience the ride close to home.

Your end-of-year gift allows us to advocate, plan, educate, develop new trails and maintain existing trails in our eight volunteer-led chapters across the state. All of them committed to making Washington the best place to ride!

As this year ends, please consider what you value most about your favorite trail, your local riding spot, your mountain bike community, and Evergreen when you plan your year-end giving.

Please Donate to Evergreen today and give yourself the gift of riding tomorrow and beyond!

Thanks for your support,
