It’s a fact: trails don’t build themselves. Concurrently, trail networks with well-served access are an essential recreational resource and a foundation of the mountain bike community. Ride Concepts wants to recognize and support the tireless efforts of non-profit trail alliances across North America. This is why they created the Dig To Ride Fund, an annual fund dedicated to supporting trailbuilding projects. Ride Concepts has chosen to dedicate their 2022 Dig To Ride Fund to the Tillamook Off-Road Trail Alliance (TORTA) in Tillamook County, Oregon.
The Dig To Ride Fund is a dedicated donation where $3 of all North American wholesale and direct sales of their TNT shoe is pooled annually. TNT is their workhorse gravity and trailbuilding flat shoe. TNT meets the tough demands of all-season, all-day digging and works even harder when it’s time to session the new builds. TNT is burly through and through with a microfiber upper for durability and performance in all conditions, D3O® impact protection in the medial collar to ward off unexpected crank-side encounters and a robust, custom-molded toe cap and heel run defense fore to aft. The MAX GRIP rubber outsole features a recessed area on the toe and heel for traction while hiking and digging. The generously sized hook and loop Powerstrap tops it off for a final sense of security.
Ride Concepts' partnership with TORTA in 2022 was natural and spawned from Biketown - a film by Freehub magazine. They were moved by the organization’s passion and dedication to world-class mountain biking trails on the Oregon coast. The non-profit has developed a strategic master plan to create a system of trails for community enhancement in and around the Pacific City area. The Dig To Ride Fund will benefit the Buzzard Butte Trail Network, a 35-mile year-round contemporary singletrack project, and the Nestucca Valley Elementary School skills park, an all-levels skills development project at a local public school. Ride Concept's donation will be made at the end of the year once they have maximized sales of the TNT shoe.
TNT is the shoe that builds trails, quite literally, and now your purchase contributes to the Dig To Ride Fund, benefiting two new trail projects in Tillamook County, Oregon.
