Navajo Mountiain Bike

Meeting Time

Wednesdays, 7:00-8:00 PM

Project Description

The Navajo Mountain Bike Initiative team aims to assist the people of the Navajo
community, both economically and socially. The remote location of their community causes an
extreme lack of economic opportunities for their people as well as limiting the options they have
for physical activities. Our team works to eliminate these problems by designing and building
bike trails and tracks for the native people to ride as well as others outside their region. The bike
tracks promote healthy exercise as well as bridging their people to the competitive bmx riding
world. Our team has previously built one of these tracks and it has had great success, especially
amongst the children that attend a local elementary school. We have another track site that has
had it’s foundation laid and is ready for building when Covid-19 allows. We are also in the
process of establishing a mountain bike trail which will hopefully draw in riders from across the
country. Thus greatly boosting the economic development and opportunity in the region for the
Navajo Nation as well as promoting physical activity for all ages.
