Summer is the perfect time to get out for a multi-day work party trip. We’ve got you covered with lots of options!

Kettle Fest

Join Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, Evergreen East and the Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition from July 11-15 for 5 days of epic riding and camping at Kettle Crest in Colville National Forest.

We’ll do a full day of work on Saturday, July 14 and spend the rest of the trip riding and enjoying some of the best remote singletrack Washington has to offer. If you can't join for the entire time, come for as long as works for you.

Folks with kids, the campground is a great spot for the little ones to ride around.

 

Osborne Mountain

Ever ridden the trails of Osborne Mountain?

Come join us August 3-5 for a fun weekend of riding awesome singletrack in the shadow of Mt Rainier! We will be riding and working on the trails in the Sawtooth Area of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, on the southwest side of Mt. Rainier. Can't join us for the whole weekend? Come when you can, leave when you have to. Open to all ages and abilities.

This ride has it all—old growth forest, pristine lakes, some great views, very narrow trail, some climbing challenge, a stretch of flowy downhill and, to finish, a section of steeper descent with lots of switchbacks.

 

Trans-Cascadia

 

TransCascadiaWorkParty

 

Our friends at Trans-Cascadia are hosting three work parties throughout the summer in preparation for their annual backcountry enduro race. They'll be working July 12-15, July 26-29 and August 9-12.

For those unfamiliar, each year the crew at Trans-Cascadia works to revitalize old and forgotten singletrack to be used in their race. Previously held in Oregon, they’ll be racing this year in the Gifford Pinchot region of South Central Washington.

All food and beer will be provided by the organizers. Sign up to volunteer and help bring awesome new trails online in Washington!

 

Can't make it out for an overnight work party trip? We've still got plenty of options to get involved with work parties on our calendar.
