    The 2019 Sedona Mountain Bike Festival (March 1-3) was a huge fundraising success, due to the tremendous combined efforts by the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund and the Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition. Final figures show a total of $22,635 was raised through our raffle giveaway, individual donations, a generous donation from 5.10 Clothing, and Festival beer sales & tips. This was more than double the amount raised at last year’s Festival. The raffle was the biggest winner, bringing in almost $16,100 in donations. More than $21,000 worth of donated prizes were gathered by the SRRTF and VVCC Festival committees. The accompanying picture shows some of the delighted raffle winners and a list of the prize donors.

    When the Festival gates were open at 9AM every morning, riders were rushing to 1) Buy Raffle Tickets or 2) Get their demo bikes?

    When 8+ inches of snow fell on February 21-22, the prospects of a having a 2019 Sedona MTB Festival were bleak. But where Mother Nature giveth, she also takes away as the temperatures warmed, the Forest Service gave the go ahead and the Festival began on time!

    Leading up to the Festival, the SRRTF partnered with the Verde Valley Cyclists Coalition (VVCC) on a combined raffle with ticket sales online during the month of February and onsite at the Festival. The raffle alone raised over $16,000 with the Giant bike giveaway a big draw.

    VVCC beer token sales and tips generated another ~$3,200 in trail contributions. Exhibitors also got in the act with 510 selling hats to benefit our trails and Bike Magazine sponsoring Saturday night's film showing with those combined proceeds - ~$2,000 - all going to the trails.

    A very successful Sedona MTB Festival is now in the books. Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, and/or purchased raffle tickets.

    February 2019 will be remembered as the Sedona Westerners Hiking Club month as the club conducted a fundraising campaign benefiting our Red Rock Trails.

    The Westerners and two anonymous donors matched the first $1,000 in donations that jumpstarted the campaign which hit the $1,000.00 donations in less than 24 hours and never stopped during the month

    In all, 39 Westerners members contributed to the campaign which generated $7,875.00 in donations benefiting trail maintenance and Western Gateway construction!

    A huge thank you to the Sedona Westerners’ Board and its members!

This contribution was made possible through the Sedona Trail Keepers - 35 local businesses that contribute $1,000 annually for trail maintenance that is matched by the Chamber thru the bed tax. Additionally, $30,000 is earmarked to Western Gateway construction.

    With two volunteer workdays cancelled due to the government shutdown, volunteers from all over the United States made the effort to attend the 1st 2019 Western Gateway Volunteer workday.

    Many of the volunteers at today's workday

    Specialized is in town with a dealer event and over 20 Specialized dealers and employees from all over the United States decided to give a little back. Justin Ingles from REI raffled off several prizes and the volunteers appreciated the Famous Pizza and Lagunitas beer at the après.

    With such a large contingent of volunteers, over 1 mile of new trail was constructed and much of Ledge-n-Airy received trail corridor lopping and trimming.

    This morning, two four-person youth crews from the American Conservation Experience (ACE) began eight weeks of construction efforts on the Western Gateway. The ACE effort is funded by a National Forest Foundation (NFF) matching award grant awarded to the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund and mountain biker contributions from all over the Verde Valley, State of Arizona and United States that helped the Verde Valley Cyclist Coaition raise the required NFF grant match. The ACE crews are working on the Girdner re-route along with several new miles of trail added to the system should be completed in time for the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival that begins on March 1, 2019.

He holds a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from CSPU at Pomona, Calif., and has worked for several international engineering/ construction companies as a specialist in synthetic fuels production since 1974.

Through the Westerners, Scott is familiar with most of the trails in and around Sedona and commonly leads hiker groups.

    The Courtyard by Marriott in Sedona hosted the Annual Sedona Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer on December 6, 2018.  This year event added a philanthropic element to the event by supporting the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund.  Through its version of the infamous Wheel of Fortune Game, guests purchased ‘spins’ for $10 each at chance to win a great prize!  Partners have kindly donated restaurant certificates, spa certificates and a variety of gift prizes!  All proceeds from this activity go directly to the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund (SRRTF).  In addition, there will be a holiday photo set where guests pay to have a professional photo taken and those proceeds will also go to the SRRTF.

    The event raised close to $600 for the SRRTF. Thank you Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau and Cheryl Barron and Christine McCabe or the Sedona Courtyard by Marriott!
