    SWMMBA trailwork @ Lionhead 7/20-22 (BEERS, BIKES & BBQ)

    Unfortunately the Lionhead (and neighboring trails) remain threatened under the forest service's current review of MT WSAs.

    If you've never ridden the Lionhead before, this is a great introduction to the area and a fun weekend of camping with like-minded folks:


    This is the best trail work event in the region. Come to one of the most beautiful backcountry trail riding locations, help clear some trails, ride, camp, BBQ and hang with some of the greatest people on two wheels.

    This is also a unique opportunity to ride these astounding backcountry trails with riders who know the route and volunteers will have shuttles waiting for you at the end of the day. These rides are difficult but rewarding in all the best ways, if you have not had the opportunity or have lacked the confidence to ride in the Lionhead/Henry's mountains this is the perfect opportunity to do so in a friendly group and at a reasonable pace.

    Long distance trail runners welcome to join the fun too. Last year we had several trail runners who took the rare opportunity to run 17 to 25 miles with all the logistics in place so they could really enjoy the trail.
