The winner will be drawn on Thursday, October 11, following the Inaugural Oz Trails Off-Road in Bentonville & Bella Vista, Arkansas.
Since launching in March, the 2018 Hail the Trail fundraiser has raised more than 55 percent of its $40,000 goal. So far, three of the four mountain bikes - each worth more than $6,000 - have been awarded, thanks to Official Bike Partners Specialized Bicycles, Cannondale and Pivot Cycles.
Hail the Trail will benefit the following non-profit trail organizations that maintain the trails in each Off-Road Series host community with all proceeds from Hail the Trail being evenly distributed between the four trail-building organizations while setting up four lucky supporters with brand new mountain bikes.
National Fundraiser Facilitates Local InitiativesPrescott Mountain Bike Alliance (PMBA)
will use their portion of the funds to launch a new youth ride program designed to get up to 75 kids involved in trail work on the Prescott National Forest. Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Association (COPMOBA)
will use their portion for new trail construction to complete the Mack Ridge project in the Grand Valley. Muscle Powered
will use their portion to construct new trails, including the Capital Connector, a trail that will connect the Tahoe Rim Trail to the federally acclaimed Ash to Kings Trail by way of Spooner Lake Nevada State Park. And the new Lincoln Bypass Trail, which will extend the Longview trail, also connecting to the Ash to Kings trail. Both projects will deliver increased singletrack connectivity for more recreational opportunities. Friends of Arkansas Single Track (FAST)
