NextGen Pedal Parade

Gather your favorite homies for a celebration of an amazing summer on the trails! Spin around in costume on your pimped out bike and go for a ride to try and hit all the designated trail stops around town for chances to win outstanding prizes. Food trucks and beer will await your return.




GVLT Parking Lot and Trails South of Main St.






Summer’s coming to a close but we can still have one last hurrah. The GVLT NextGen Advisory Board wants to get goofy with you. Don your best costume and decorate your bike for the 2nd annual Pedal Parade. We’ll meet at the GVLT parking lot, 212 S. Wallace.

It’s off to the races. Grab some buddies or find a new friend to set out on your Pedal Parade trail adventure. NextGen members have set up 6 stations on the trails for you to hit within the hour. Each location will award you one raffle ticket and will offer you an additional raffle ticket for an activity or trivia question. Hit the bonus stops farthest from town and you’ll get an extra ticket for biking fast and far. How many tickets can you collect?

When you arrive back at base camp, drop your earned raffle tickets in the prizes of your choosing (one night stay at Element Hotel, $500 Sitka Gear gift card, Simms Fishing waders valued at $499, 3 hours of business legal services from Kristin Bailey Law, Oboz Footwear shoes, Rocky Mountain Toy Company kids package, Mystery Ranch backpack and more!). Grab a bite from a food truck and a beer to cool you down.

BONUS: Each participant will be given a dog poop bag. Scoop a poop on your ride and bring it back to base camp for an additional raffle ticket!

*KID FRIENDLY* Multiple trail stations are close enough to the headquarters for little tykes to reach within the time limit. Bring ’em along and let them be part of the challenge! They can drop their earned tickets into the bucket for a special kid’s raffle prize

A trophy will be awarded for the best costume and decorated bike. Sillier the better, you’ll be in good company.
