Ape Canyon-Smith Creek Epic | Sunday Group Ride | July 27

July 27, 2014

Carpool to leave Velo Cult at 8am.

This ride is for strong and fit riders looking to challenge their endurance.

Many riders forego this option in favor of simply riding out and back on the Ape Canyon Trail beyond the Plains of Abraham.  Some may adventure all the way out to Windy Pass for the views into Spirit Lake, accepting the grueling fate of hiking back up the "stairs."


Mt St Helens Coldwater Lake work event and campout

To celebrate National Trails Day, we will be out in force at Coldwater Lake on the north side of Mount St. Helens on Saturday, June 7th.

Last year’s work party drew only 75 volunteers. We are aiming for 100 this time, so get your name on the list and start browbeating your friends. NO DOGS AT THIS EVENT.

To say the project is a large one is a sizable understatement. The scope includes work on a 12-mile loop comprised of the 211, 230, and 230A. Last year, we also hit about a mile of the 230A from the back of Coldwater Lake toward St. Helens Lake. Depending on the number of volunteers and the snow conditions, we are hoping to do more in this area.

Last year’s epic end-of-the-day party will be hard to beat, but we will do our best.


NWTA Kids MTB Camp

2014 Youth Mountain Bike Day Camp

Whether you want to become a mountain bike pro or are just checking out the sport for the first time, this four day camp will give you the hands on experience you need to safely shred on your bike. Build skills and explore mountain bike styles in four different parks: Ventura Park Pump Track, Powell Butte, Cascade Locks and Sandy Ridge trail systems. The camp will also feature education around Mtn. Bike ethics, ecology of our parks, and an opportunity to give back to nature through a service project. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!


National Trails Day: Sandy Ridge Shuttle Day

What better way to celebrate National Trails Day than to head out to Sandy Ridge for a day of trail riding with shuttle service.  Space is limited, get yours!   Current NWTA/IMBA members can pre-register to reserve their spot!   See flyer below for all the nitty-gritty.
