Support the Wood River Trails Coalition and Enter to Win a Kona Process

Aug 5, 2021
by sgresswrtc  

The Wood River Trails Coalition (WRTC), in collaboration with Kona Bikes is raffling off a Kona Process 134 CR 29 in support of the WRTC’s mission: to create, maintain and sustain trails for all users.

The WRTC is a trail stewardship organization based in the Sun Valley, ID area, a community that boasts over 400 miles of singletrack trails literally out the backdoor. Sun Valley is a mecca for mountain biking, hiking, dirt biking, horseback riding and many other outdoor pursuits. While Sun Valley is famous for its skiing, summer recreation on its abundant public lands is challenging winter’s offerings as the area’s claim to fame.


Every raffle ticket you buy supports trail maintenance, new trail construction, future projects and ongoing WRTC operations. A $10 raffle ticket supports these efforts.

The last day to buy tickets is September 6th, 2021. The winner will be notified by phone and be able to choose their size. Check out the bike here.

$10 = one pair of work gloves for a volunteer
$30 = one handsaw for volunteer work
$50 = four gallons of chainsaw bar oil
$200 = one mile of professional trail maintenance

Help us reach our goal! We’ve raised $6,279 of our $20,000 goal!

You can support the trails you ride from the comfort of your home and maybe even win a brand new bike! It’s a win-win for all. Thank you!

Enter the raffle here.

THE BIKE:

Reliable, ready to get rowdy, and always down to go wherever you want, the Process 134 CR is like that friend you want to bring everywhere with you. Fox suspension front and rear keeps the bike smooth while that beloved Process geometry keeps the full carbon frame playful. SRAM’s updated GX Eagle drivetrain and new G2 RS brakes bring control to every ride. This year the bike is running a Maxxis Dissector 2.4” WT 3C rear tire to provide maximum traction with blistering speed. The Process 134 CR—your best friend in bike form.

 If you win the bike and sell it for full retail the proceeds will afford you one full day and a night's lodging in Sun Valley.

 Lol, yeah, my wife's family lives in Bellevue so I get to ride up there often. There is good camping around if you don't want to pay lodging. The pricing up there is getting to be insane with everyone finding the outdoors during COVID.

 @HB208: yup, went to a wedding there back before the turn of the century. It's beautiful, looks like the terrain is awesome but the only place we found where we could afford to eat was a Mexican place selling burritos for 15 bucks or something.

 @Lemmyschild: I think it may have changed a bit these days.

The food is usually not the part that gets you. I don't feel like most places are much more expensive than any other city (in Ketchum, stuff gets more expensive, but not everywhere). The lodging is really expensive more than anything. The riding is really good, but it is also fairly old school. They have been building more modern trails (Alden Gulch and the Quigley bike park come to mind), but most of the classic trails take 2-3k of climbing over 4-5 miles to get to the top of a ridge and then you descend for a while. I think that is fun, but it can be a lot to take on if you just want a quick ride. Usually if I just want to ride around for a bit, I go to Croy canyon and do loops (that place is really fun).

 @HB208: I'm really curious how you mean that the riding is "old school." What you describe sounds like a normal ride. What's a "new school" ride like?

 @Explodo: Flow trails with jumps mostly and large berms. Old school is just normal trails lol.

 @whippsb: Wasn't exactly news to me at this point from a general standpoint, but I didn't realize that there's a specific distinction between the trail styles.

 Sun Valley is one of the most affluent highend outdoor community's in the country. Like they need help with funding what a bunch of crap!
  • 1 0
 That's kind of true, but there are a lot of people who don't own houses up there and have normal jobs that aren't affluent. Expensive housing also means normal people spend a lot on housing. A lot of people that work in the ski and bike shops, restaurants, etc. are in this category. Those are also the people that seem to be most dedicated to the sport.
