The Giddyup is rolling at full steam in our second year and we’re excited to announce a major partnership with REI, including a stewardship grant to fund our trail projects in 2017.
We’re excited to have earned the support of such a strong partner for the Giddyup Trails Team that ensures we’re able to put a shovel where our voice is, working in partnership with our friends at Jefferson County Open Space every step of the way.
We couldn’t say it better than our friends at REI: “The Giddyup’s work proves the powerful impact that mountain bikers can have in their community,” said Jon Frankel, REI Colorado Outdoor Programs Market Manager. “For the past three years riders, volunteers and organizers have stayed focused on delivering long-term benefits for Golden-area trails, building strong partnerships with local land managers and businesses. Stewardship is a core value at REI and a value we celebrate through our partnerships.”
We’re proud of the work we’ve been doing with Jeffco Open Space and, with this increased support, we’ll be able to engage more volunteers on more ambitious projects.
