If you want to ride some amazing trails, meet some likeminded riders, enjoy some BBQ, and support foster youth please read the information below!
Thank you for inquiring about our first ever Fundraiser for the foster youth of Sierra Quest Human Services a local non profit serving youth from all over the state of CA. We are a very active program wanting our youth to experience all the recreational activities that most youth normally experience. The funds raised will go towards purchasing much needed recreational equipment for their use. For more information about our program please visit www.sierraquest.org
Fundraiser: BBQ May 1st starting at 4:00 pm
Options for Mtn Biker’s: The locals ride every Saturday morning. They start gathering at 8:00 am and will leave for the ride at 9:00. For anyone interested in joining them please gather at the BBQ location between 8:00-9:00am on Saturday, 3707 Apperson Mine road mariposa Ca 95338. All trails start from that location.
Riding options: The trails can be described as straight down single track and straight back up to the top on dirt roads. We are located in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges at 4000 elevation near Yosemite National Park and there is a lot of elevation loss and gain. The trails can be challenging at top speeds with some features but non experienced bikers often use them and can enjoy them at a slower pace. All the riding is located in the same local area and we plan on riding them all. However you can always bail out at any time back to the BBQ location and relax in the shade while waiting for the BBQ.
Camping/hotels: RV and or tent camping is available on the property with no hookups both Friday and Saturday night. Portable bathrooms will be available and a hose or the local pond will be accessible for showers. You may also choose to stay in the town of Mariposa 30 min from the venue where there are many hotel options to choose from.
Please note: This event is being held on private property where the home owners will not receive anything for their generosity. Thus, please pack in and out your trash, etc. The BBQ fundraiser is the advertised event. The ride is not associated with Sierra Quest or the property owner but an option to join the locals and see some of the recreational options in the area. You ride at your own risk. Merced river is 30 min from the location for swimming and fishing and the park entrance is 45 min. away from the venue.
Donations: We purposely did not put an amount for you to donate for the event. When you choose to donate please take into account the dinner and drinks included and if you plan on camping or join in on the ride. We do not want an assumed price to exclude people or curb the amount you would like to donate. We hope that you have such a great time that you will join us again the following year and/or may want to donate on our go fund me page all year around. You may choose to donate before the event on the go fund me page as well as on site donation options.
