First Annual Trail Mix raises money for trail tools

It was a party for real at Paul’s Bicycle Way of Life on Friday June 1st when nearly 100 people packed into the 5th Street store to support a benefit for trail work volunteers. People socialized, drank beer, bought raffle tickets for bike-related and other prizes and bid on some of the even cooler stuff offered for auction.

The evening, planned in conjunction with the IMBA Trail Care Crew visit, was put on by the Disciples of Dirt (DOD) and the Greater Oakridge Area Trail Stewards (GOATS).  When all was said and done, the event brought in $2,200 that will be used to purchase trail tools and other necessities for the volunteers that work on building and maintaining our local mountain bike trails.

A huge thanks goes out to Matt Ritzow of Paul’s bike shop for his invaluable help and support. You can read more details about the event, and the importance of our trail volunteers here.
