This weekend, Sheridan Community Land Trust (SCLT) will be hosting the 7th Annual Biketoberfest – this year on Red Grade Trails. Biketoberfest is the main fall fundraising event for SCLT, and the proceeds raised will go toward building and maintaining natural surface trails around Sheridan County. The event was created to highlight the four miles of Soldier Ridge Trail that were completed in 2012 with funds raised by SCLT through grants and community donations. This year, for the first time ever, the event will be held on Red Grade Trails to debut the next portion of trail, making a total of nearly six miles in the Red Grade Trails System.
If you’ll be in Sheridan, come have fun this weekend! Meet great people; bring your friends. There will be wonderful opportunities to hike, bike, run, jog, do yoga, compete in a cyclocross race, listen to music… and maybe win a fly rod, a bike, running shoes, or a yurt trip. The raffle prizes are truly outstanding and have been donated by local businesses and organizations – these alone are worth the trip to Red Grade Trails! Plus, everyone has a chance to win.
At Biketoberfest, there’s something for the whole family. A $30 donation gets you access to all festival events, free lunch donated by Jimmy Johns, free beer donated by Black Tooth Brewing, Co., awesome t-shirts, and more. Kids get free access to all events.
With the help of over a dozen local business sponsors, SCLT hopes to raise $25,000 this weekend on Red Grade Trails.
