Giving back

I heard on NPR yesterday about how non-profits are having problems collecting money in this economy. It's common sense, non-essentials are the first to go when the economy tumbles. Fewer people are donating money to non-profit organizations. What better time to really show how much we (mountain bikers) appreciate the Arizona Trail Association than now....

When and Where: Saturday, January 9, 2010 8:00 AM at Pistol Hill
The Arizona Trail Jamboree is a charity ride benefiting the Arizona Trail Association. All monies collected will go directly to the ATA. 35 miles of sweet singletrack (one way), ending with free beer and schwag at Pistol Hill Road.

GPX, maps, more information available here

I challenge you to be apart of this ride or help spread the word. We have all ridden segments of the AZ Trail. I have been at the East Rim View in Kaibab, ridden for days without a person in sight, wandered over to Sedona from Flagstaff, attempted to ride 300 miles and looked down into the Grand Canyon all on the Arizona Trail (the list goes on and on).
It is perhaps the greatest trail in the southwest. Let's do our part by giving back.
