Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

Offered privately only to Spokane Sacred Rides guides and supporters... CrombiCrest 2017!!

Wow, it's July already and we haven't announced the yearly mountain bike trip to the north. This year, our traditional third weekend in July ride will be the first annual CrombiCrest! Three days, two nights, two different amazing campgrounds and two of the most excellent rides in eastern Washington, combining Abercrombie mountain and Kettle Crest into one weekend.

This will be a sort of soft opening for Sacred Rides as well. Since we are all close mountain biking friends and NSR sort of spawned Spokane Sacred Rides, it is only fitting to have you all along for this first event.

My plan is to have a small fee, like 20 bucks, and you will get back 50 bucks worth of cool Sacred Rides swag, food, and beer. The reason for the fee is so that you can all test out the booking system and food offerings and help us be sure it is all perfect. Can't wait to see you all for the CrombiCrest weekend! July 21-23, 2017!
