 A place for mountain bikers to gather, and share the stoke online.

 

The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is excited to offer a new Evergreen Events Calendar category, “Virtual”, a space for mountain bikers to gather and connect online!

While nothing beats meeting up for a group ride or work party, we see Virtual as a tool that can be used during this time of stay-at-home orders, physical distancing, and general weirdness to keep the stoke alive for Washington’s mountain bikers. Use Virtual calendar events to share slideshows of your favorite trails, bike trips, tech tips, and skill building techniques. Or, create a weekly happy hour to chill out and enjoy a cold one with your Evergreen brothers and sisters.

Creating a virtual event is done the exact same way you create any event on our calendar– by clicking “New Event” and filling out the details. Just select “Virtual” in the section labeled “Categories”. Easy!

Before you jump in and create a Virtual event, be sure to read our guide:
