Trail Work Parties
Our weekly trail work parties have moved to the high country! Starting July 14th we'll be meeting at 4:45 pm at the clock tower in Schweitzer Village. Bring your mountain bike because we'll be taking the chairlift up and riding down to the work site. Check Facebook or our club calendar for up to date information.
Group mountain bike rides are happening every Tuesday, meeting at 5:30 pm at the Schweitzer clock tower. POP board member Steve Sanchez and Schweitzer's Arlene Cook will lead the group on a 5-7 mile XC ride followed by beers at Pucci's.
Youth MTB Camps
POP is offering youth summer mountain bike camps for the first time this year! 24 riders will join three coaches and three "junior" coaches over two weeks: July 27-31 is our "intermediate" camp, August 3-7 is our "advanced camp." Registration opens at 5 pm on May 22nd. You must be a current member to register, so renew today, then set yourself a reminder to register for camp on Friday the 22nd!

How you can help
Our ability to fulfill our mission and work towards our vision depends on community support. There are many ways you can help:
- Join or donate: Building and maintaining great trails costs money. Your annually renewed membership and one time donations are essential to our success.
- Volunteer: We have a staff of one part-time director, which means nearly all our labor is volunteer. Trail maintenance takes place year round, on dirt and snow. Check out our calendar for upcoming volunteer opportunities.
- Get involved: We depend on a volunteer board of directors and active club members, with monthly club meetings from March through November, and weekly group rides from spring through fall.
- Sponsor: If you're a local business who sees value in trails and recreation, consider becoming a corporate member. More information coming soon.
