Dirt Jumpers in Lander Will Soar to New (Safer) Heights

A $26,000 grant to Lander Cycling Club on September 1, 2022

While dirt jump bike parks can be great community assets—helping riders of all ages exercise and develop their skills—Lander’s is falling apart. Some of the jumps need rebuilding, one wooden ramp is particularly unsafe, and an ill-placed water spigot has created additional erosion. To address these problems, the Lander Cycling Club and other community leaders reached out to the LOR Foundation for help revitalizing the park. A grant from LOR will help bring in new dirt, build new jumps, and eliminate the ramp and water issue—and local Eagle Scouts have teamed up with the club to provide the elbow grease necessary to create a safer experience for intrepid riders in Lander.
