2020 Wilderness Rider Champion
Congratulations to Jennifer Downs, our 2020 Champion Wilderness Rider! Jennifer rode in all 7 wilderness areas that out boundary touches during the summer 2020 season and won a custom silver belt buckle from Montana Silversmiths.
Compete For Your Own Custom Silver Belt Buckle
Competition runs May 1 - December 1, annually.
The best social distancing challenge ever... open to members only! Winners receive a custom buckle from Montana Silversmiths.
Okay, okay, we have to verify our bold statement... but... to the best of our knowledge, Mountain Trekkers' boundary touches the most wilderness areas out of any BCHA chapter. The goal is to ride in all 7 of our wilderness areas.
The ride does not need to be within chapter boundaries, simply within that wilderness complex. Mileage breaks ties; a round of Black Jack breaks ties if final mileage and number of wilderness complexes completed creates a deadlock.
Please reach out to us for detailed rules! The competition is heavy.
