We want you to ride. If you don’t ride, we want you to volunteer

March 31, 2022 |by | 0 Comments | Uncategorized

Our goal is to showcase Desert Gravel with as many of you as possible. It’s a monumental effort and we love every moment of it, but, it takes a lot of volunteer support.

Our first priority is to motivate you to come to ride and experience this amazing terrain and beauty. But, if you can’t or you’re coming along with friends or family to check it out we’d love you to get involved and lend a hand. We have a variety of different ways to pitch in. Please click the pick for details on how you can help. We promise, somewhere along the way a very dusty, tired, and grateful Dino Wrangler will give you a most sincere “Thank You”. And, we’ll hook you up with an awesome Race T or Socks.

Tires and Course conditions

[FIRSTNAME], we’re not going to lie, it’s a bit burly out there in spots, and we wouldn’t want it any other way! All the wonderful moisture we’ve had does lead to some rutty sections but there is a heck of a lot of smooooth cruisy too. As things dry out most sections get firm, a few get sandy. We’ll give more specific updates closer to the event as it does change every few days. That all said – we’re big fans of fat tires (beer and treads) 40+ if you can, you’ll thank us at the finish.

We’ll keep wrangling the Dino’s. You all gather up those friends! It’s going to be one hell of a day out there and we can’t wait!

The Dino Wranglers!
