Join Santa Cruz and Evergreen for a long weekend of trail work and riding on one of Washington's lesser-known gems: Basalt Ridge. Our friends from the South will be out in force, and Santa Cruz will help make this work party extra rad by providing dinner on Friday and Saturday nights and bringing the stoke as usual. Days will be long, but we'll have a great time! Primitive camping will be available both nights.

Please note that this is a true backcountry work party. This event is in July, but let's not forget it's in the mountains of Washington! Come prepared for backcountry car camping in a variety of weather. We will be camping somewhere near the base of Basalt Peak, but the exact location is still TBD as we coordinate witht the Forest Service. Keep an eye on your email inbox for updates.

If you'll be joining for dinner, make sure to complete this Google form when you RSVP to indicate any dietary needs you may have.

  •  Car camping gear
  •  Bike and associated gear
  •  Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and water for the weekend
