How do Washington MTB trails stack up? We asked the pros.

A group of Team Epic donors has contributed a

$20,000 MATCH fund to DOUBLE your impact!  

We love Washington trails—but we’re biased. So we asked local pros Jill Kintner and Luke Strobel to weigh in on the trails your donations support.

“Washington’s trails are unlike anywhere else,” says Olympic mountain biking bronze medalist Jill Kintner. “I’ve ridden around the world, and there're just amazing trails right here, and a great sense of community around them.”

“People joke about me being a homebody,” adds pro mountain biker and Issaquah native Luke Strobel, “but the trails we have are awesome. Mountain bikers have a sense of ownership here.” 

Our world-class trails exist because of you.  When you donate NOW, a group of Team Epic Donors will MATCH your support, up to $20,000!



“When the community cares about giving back to the trails they ride it has a real impact,” says Kintner “it makes them special. That’s why every time I travel to ride somewhere else, I’m glad to come back home.”

We’re just $67,478 away from our year-end goal – will you help us reach the finish line by unlocking this Team Epic cash match?
