Advocacy and volunteerism is a large part of the Cloud City Wheelers mission.
The Cloud City Wheelers advocacy efforts advance our mission to build better communities through cycling by working with governments, allied organizations, neighborhoods, and our members.
The efforts of the Cloud City Wheelers will help improve and maintain trails, provide increased access, and help meet the diverse need of the community.
To date, the Wheelers have “adopted” trails and have worked with the San Isabel National Forest Service to help improve trails in our area.
The Wheelers have also worked with the Lake County government to create a pump track and dirt jumps to help get kids out riding and having fun.
Working in conjunction with Lake County and Colorado Mountain College the Wheelers have created the Timberline Trail System. This trail system enables locals and visitors alike enjoy the solitude of the outdoors with a unique trail experience located in the heart of Leadville. These trails are also groomed in the winter time for fat biking and skiing.
As of the Fall of 2017 we are currently finalizing a large trails proposal for the Turquoise Lake area on National Forest Service land. We hope to embark on this exciting project starting in 2018 with major fundraising and construction projects leading the way to more trails!
