Nick Gibson, co-founder of the Trans-Cascadia, will talk about his vision in creating the event, which is a four day blind format backcountry mountain bike race. The Trans-Cascadia team has reclaimed over 100 miles of unused and previously unrideable backcountry trails that had been inactive for a decade or more. Additionally, they have cleared and helped maintain over 300 miles of trails within the active trail network.

The Trans-Cascadia is not only an exciting event, it’s also a dynamic trail stewardship organization.

Do you want to build and maintain trails that will be part of an Enduro race? Come meet Nick, Bekah and Ingrid!

Social hour from 6-7pm & presentations begin at 7pm.
