"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!

Why We Spiderfest

whyspidersWhy do we Spiderfest?

A celebration of and for those that build and ride, run and hike the Smithville Lake Trails!

A core group of mountain bike enthusiasts came together in friendship and in vision in the summer of 2005. Even before the paved bike trails existed at Smithville Lake, a few veteran visionary mountain bikers had developed a working partnership with Clay County Parks back in 2001. A solid frame work had been put in place to build and maintain a responsible single track trail system.
