Where Your Money Goes

Events are one of several ways the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) raises funds for making trail magic happen in the Lost Sierra.

If you've ever ridden the iconic trails of Downieville, the Lakes Basin and Mills Peak near Graeagle, or our newest creation, Mount Hough Trail in Quincy, you know how much time and effort goes into making these world-class trails.

Our three events - the Lost and Found Gravel Grinder, the Downieville Classic and Mountains to Meadows - are not only filled with challenges, adventure, camaraderie and a huge post-event celebration, but part of your entry fee also helps employ local Plumas and Sierra County residents full-time, working to establish a more sustainable recreation-based economy.

Participating in an SBTS event is more than just riding your bike and having a good time; it's helping create some of the best trails in America while helping communities in the Lost Sierra thrive, keeping the dream of wholesome mountain living alive and well.

Here is what the Sierra Butte Trail Stewardship has accomplished:

  • 92.5 miles of new trails built
  • 1,163 miles of trails maintained
  • 113 trail projects completed
  • 37 employees this year

Thanks for your continued support and participation, and see you trailside!

The Lost & Found Mike Shaw Memorial Scholarship

To honor the passing of Mike Shaw in 2018, the SBTS is offering a scholarship entry for a young rider to participate in the challenging Lost and Found Longest Course Gravel Grinder.  The scholarship will be awarded based on the following criteria created in collaboration with his widow;

  • Must be under the age of 23 years old.
  • Submit a short essay (<350 words) ‘What have you done to encourage multi-use trails and trail access in your region?’
  • Be physically fit and prepared for a challenging 100 mile gravel ride in a remote location.

Entries must be submitted by May 1st.  The winner will be decided based on content and writing style.  Judges will include The Angry Single Speeder, Uncle Coz, Kyla Pascucci, and Dr Rob – and will be announced May 10th.

We look forward to hearing what you’ve all been doing to support youth riding in your local communities and beyond!!
