BikeSource Announces Continued Support of ERTA/Swope

We're happy to announce that BikeSource (already a financial supporter of Swope) has made a cash donation of $5000 for the continuing development of the trail system. Additionally, BikeSource has agreed to make this an annual donation we can count on for the next 5 years! This donation will help us be able to move forward at a quicker pace and give us more of the dirt we love!

 THANKS BikeSource!

"Earn Your Dirt" and meet Gary Fisher! (DATE CHANGE)

GaryFisherThe local Trek stores are teaming up with ERTA to host a fundraiser, and this is a very cool event. Trail conditions permitting there will be a ride with Gary Fisher himself the morning of March 18th, 9 a.m. Yes folks, Trek is bringing Gary Fisher to town to see the local bike scene!

Later that same evening from 7-9 PM at the Trek store in Independence there will be a question and answer session with Gary. 

Boulevard will be providing beverages, there will be food and the first 140 or so people will be able to nab a pretty nifty ERTA pint glass. A donation of $25 (or more!) to ERTA is requested. There may be some other schwag involved, as well as some items for raffle from Trek and Boulevard.

So plan on coming out and having a good time and supporting ERTA and our efforts to bring more trails to KC. This will be the easiest way to Earn Your Dirt this year! 

A big thanks to our local Trek stores, Gary Fisher and Boulevard for the support. Check back closer to time for more info!
