MER is proud to support our Nonprofit of the Month for June:
Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates
For over 25 years, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates have built relationships with all local land management agencies to be a resource for all these agencies any time a question comes up about mountain biking and trail use. including the City of Colorado Springs Parks Department, El Paso County Parks, the US Forest Service, the BLM, and Colorado State Parks. They work to be a resource for all these agencies any time a question comes up about mountain biking and trail use.
Medicine Wheel keeps in touch with the local land management agencies, like the US Forest Service, Colorado State Parks, the Colorado Springs Parks Department, and the El Paso County Parks Department. By maintaining good communication with the agencies which control our parks & forests, Medicine Wheel help them avoid problems with mountain cyclists before they happen.
With today’s limited budgets, land management agencies are finding it harder and harder to build new trails for their users. Medicine Wheel steps in to help build trails that benefit all trail users and not just mountain bikers.
Medicine Wheel help to maintain trails for city, state and federal agencies in the Pikes Peak region, along with other volunteer groups throughout the area. Some of the areas they have helped maintain include Palmer Park, Ute Valley Park, Garden of the Gods Park, Cheyenne Mountain State Park, and trails throughout Pike National Forest.
Education & Outreach
In addition to their other amazing work, Medicine wheel educates riders about being courteous to other trail users and about proper riding techniques and trail usage.
