Celebrating its third year, the Hail The Trail 2019 is a fundraiser for trails, rewarding three lucky winners with a brand new mountain bike from Specialized Bicycles, Pivot Cycles, and SCOTT Sports.
To date, Hail the Trail has raised more than $70,000, benefiting trail building organizations in the host communities of the Epic Rides Series.
For two weeks only, each ticket you purchase for #HailTheTrail goes to funding Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance, Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association, Muscle Powered, and Ozark Off-Road Cyclists to keep doing what they are doing … keeping the trails alive. Keeping our sport alive.
TICKETS ON SALE JULY 10-23. DRAWING ON JULY 26TH

We need your vote. Beginning tomorrow, September 25, 2018, please click on this link (note: the link won’t work until Tuesday, 9/25/2018) and vote for Muscle Powered to receive the 2018 NV Energy Power of Good Giveaway. The money will be used to conduct research along Secret Trail, identifying the most resilient native species of plants. The findings will be shared with local and regional land managers to help benefit trail building efforts in the Eastern Sierra. You can vote once per day. Voting is only open for four days, so please maximize your voting potential and vote each day.
In keeping with our mission of building a more walkable and bikeable community, Muscle Powered, in partnership with Carson City Parks, Recreation, and Open Space, will conduct a reseeding project along a portion of Secret Trail in the Eastern Sierra foothills. Dr. Johanna Foster, an ecologist and Board member of Muscle Powered will lead the collaborative effort to analyze which native plant species are most successful at regeneration. Research results will help land managers develop sustainable trail designs, and will be used for training and educational purposes with a goal of benefiting future recovery efforts on local trail systems.
Just like last year, Epic Rides is sponsoring an incredible fundraiser that benefits Muscle Powered and we couldn’t be more stoked about it.
The Hail the Trail raffle gives you the chance to win a brand new mountain bike worth over $6,000. But this year there’s an added bonus!
Enter the Hail the Trail Raffle and in addition to winning a mountain bike, you could win one of these AWESOME components from FOX.
Fox Factory 34 Step-Cast Fox Transfer Dropper Post
Every purchase of a Hail the Trail raffle entry also qualifies you for a chance to win one of these great bonus prizes from Fox. To enter the bonus drawing, go to the main Hail the Trail promotion page, buy one or more entries, come by the Muscle Powered tent during the Carson City Off-Road with proof of purchase (a confirmation on your phone or printed receipt is fine) and we will get you entered. Every Hail the Trail ticket equals one chance for the bonus drawing, so more Hail the Trail tickets means more chances to win the seat post or fork.
We will draw for these prizes on Sunday afternoon (June 17) You do not need to be present to win.
The prizes will be awarded in the form of a certificate issued by Fox so you will be able to select the correct size fork or post for your needs.
