If we want to make this sport more accessible to everyone, we need to have funding to be able to help riders pay for the expenses associated with riding and racing. We also must pay for lodging at races we are not allowed to camp at. We need funding to be able to continue to accomplish these goals and allow those who would not otherwise have the means to race in the future. We rely almost entirely on our own money and donations to support our racing and ensure those who cannot afford to pay are able to race and buy jerseys and other equipment. In addition, if we are able to raise enough money, we would like to help purchase a few mountain bikes for those who want to try the sport. Outdoor Ed does not have a large fleet of bikes.
