New Wente is GO

Wente will take place for a second term at Wente Scout Reservation in Willits, CA.

We just recently got some fantastic news -- Wente has been approved for a return on the 2017 calendar. We just got this information passed on to us as of February 1st, when we originally planned to open registration. So bear with us while we work out some of the details and get ready for registration to officially open on February 15th.

In 2016, your support allowed us to contribute enormously to the Wente Scout MTB program. We even donated a Rokon AWD trail bike that's been put to great use. In 2017 we're going to aim to do even more, and you can help. During registration, you'll be given the option to choose from a number of pre-scheduled trail work days where you can come out and contribute to one of the most incredible mountain bike programs we've ever seen.

See you right back here on February 15th!

Space is limited to the first 550 participants! Organize your troops!
