Sawtooth Challenge Volunteers and Riders needed

If you do not already know the Sawtooth Mountain Bike Challenge is on
again for next Sunday September 7, 2014 at 10am. We started this event in
1991 to highlight the  unique wilderness terrain and the 1000 vertical
feet between Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains. In recent years we
have been using as much of the new single track as possible and this year
will include some new sections. Go to
for more information or to register. You can also stop by the shop to
register and see a current course map.

We need several more volunteers to help us make the event successful.
Please call or email if you can help.
