Hey all –

It’s that time of year again…fishing, paddling, floating, hiking, camping, and most importantly: mountain biking and trail running! We’re gearing up for our big Del Norte Trail Showcase and I’m reaching out to donors all across Colorado – I’m also reaching out to YOU! The Riders!!

The San Luis Valley has some amazing mountain biking and trail running opportunities and our annual Del Norte Trail Showcase was created to get the word out about this the hidden gems that are our trails. This year, the event takes place on June 4th-6th and we have a lot going on: Featured Runs & Rides, Movies and Beer/Food in Del Norte Town Park, and Music & Silent Auction at the Windsor Hotel & Restaurant.

I have two goals for this year’s event and I need your help to make them happen…

  1. Get more women on the trails!! Last year, Laura Haefeli rocked the female representation on the trail running side and this inspired me to get more women out and about on bikes. If you’re interested in riding at the event (or even riding before and after!) email me!
  2. Raise money for our local trails – I’m coordinating a silent auction and would love to feature your bike and/or running-related items to help raise fund to maintain our local trails. Are you an artist? Do you work for a company that loves to support trail building? Does your business make bike and/or running products? If you’re interested in donating an item to the silent auction, give me a shout at

SO get stoked and I’ll look forward to seeing you on the trails and at this great event!!
