We had a blast at our Summer Kickoff on Saturday! This is our third time throwing a Season Kickoff Party, and they just keep getting better. It’s a great way to get together and celebrate changing seasons (take a hint Colorado), make new friends, and maybe take home some great prizes! We also get the chance to raise money for our wonderful summer non-profit partner, The Cycle Effect! In a nutshell, they’re all about “empowering young women through mountain biking to create brighter futures and build stronger communities”.

FIRST EVER GEAR SWAP!
We kicked off the morning with our first gear swap! We hosted about ten sellers and had a great time hanging out and swapping gear! If you were one of the early birds who joined us – THANK YOU!
CORNHOLE AND KOMBUCHA!
At noon the girls from The Cycle Effect fired up the grill and sold the most delicious bratwurst lunches! Zach from Happy Leaf Kombucha (now on tap in the shop) gave out free samples of the tastiest kombucha, and store manager Brian started our cornhole tournament!
FRIENDS OF WILDERNESS SPORTS
We love hanging out with our friends, and Summit County is full of rad people and organizations! Joining us for our kickoff party were Friends of the Dillon Ranger District, Summit Climbing Gym, and of course the coaches of The Cycle Effect!
PARTY THE NIGHT AWAY!
After a fun day of gear swapping, bratwurst eating, kombucha drinking, and cornhole playing, it was time to party! Fueled by beer provided by our friends at Broken Compass, we had a great time giving away some awesome prizes, including a Rocky Mountain bike frame, with the help of our friend Parker! At the end of the night we had raised $1000 all to help get girls on mountain bikes! We’re so excited to partner up with The Cycle Effect again this year and we can’t wait for an awesome bike season!
