Supporting the fabric of our culture means investing in the groups who build the trails we love to ride. These are our region’s mountain bike trail alliances and associations.


We’re developing a Regional Stewards Program through the Ride the Rockies Society which will give back to our hard working mountain bike (MTB) associations in the Rockies of Alberta and eastern British Columbia by cultivating support toward:

  • New MTB trail developments
  • Trail upgrade projects & builder education
  • Enhanced signage or wayfinding
  • Research related projects

In addition to growing the Regional Stewards Program, each year we’ll provide MTB associations with:

  • A free expo booth at the Fest
  • Fest tickets to reward their volunteers
  • In-event networking activities for regional builders
  • Donated items toward their local fundraising efforts

There will be a variety of ways at Plaid Goat that you can join us in making sure the trail groups feel appreciated and support Rockies’ mountain bike culture, association by association.
