Powerful Trail Builder Coming Soon!
Routt County Riders and Yampa Valley Bank are bringing something POWERFUL to Steamboat Springs this summer!
Introducing the Single Track 240 trail building machine!
We’ve made a deposit on a highly specialized Single Track 240 (ST240) trail building machine! The ST240 will allow Routt County Riders to build and maintain single track trails in less time. It can handle the heavy lifting, allowing hand crews to follow with ligher duty finish work.
We still need some help to get it here and start building sweet single track ths summer. Yampa Valley Bank has generously agreed to match any funds we raise between now and May 31, up to $12,500. Help us reach this immediate goal!
Every dollar helps, and it’s easy to contribute. Click here to contribute online or mail a check to: Routt County Riders, Attn: ST240, PO Box 770094, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477-0094
The beauty of this machine is that it is narrow - minimum 24 inches - but powerful and capable. So don't worry, your new single track trail will never feel machine-built. You won't even be able to tell which sections of the tight new single track were started by machine and which ones were completely hand-built.
While one vision for obtaining this machine is to stretch the dollars from the accommodations tax funding so more projects can be completed, Routt County Riders is PURCHASING the ST240 without any City funding. This allows the ST240 to be used on potential projects outside of the scope of the Steamboat Springs Trails Allaince (SSTA) proposed projects list such as those on BLM, Forest Service and private land.
Currently the Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance projects are being evaluated and ranked by the volunteer 2A Trails Steering Committee for an eventual recommendation to the Steamboat Springs City Council for funding. While Routt County Riders expects that the 2A Trails Steering Committee and the City Council will recommend at least some backcountry trails be funded, RCR is also open to discussing potential trail work on private lands in the area. If you have ever wanted your own single track, please feel free to contact Routt County Riders for more details!
Imagine even more single track in the Yampa Valley! Help us make your dreams come true!
