Cowlitz on the Move and Pathways 2020 has announced that it will recognize Growlers Gulch Racing as a 2011 Champion of Healthy Lifestyles.
Pathways 2020 Director Paul Youmans said that GGR’s work “exemplifies our efforts for everyone to eat smart, play hard and breath free.”
Yes, I know what you’re thinking – the committee evidently ignored those rumors about our beer and gizzard consumption.
The award is given in recognition of GGR’s contributions to area biking in the following ways –
- Development of the Castle Rock Bike Park
- Encouraging new riders to get involved in mountain biking
- Creating and maintaining trails
- Providing opportunities for riders of all skill levels
Mel and I will be there on May 9th accept the award on behalf of everyone involved with Growlers Gulch Racing, but we are well aware that the things we’ve accomplished are not the work of one person or a small group. They are the result of the efforts of everyone who is involved with the bike park, adopt-a-trail, GGG, and the Growlers build and maintenance days.
We have a unique vibe that can be directly attributed to the fact that we have great people. This award is something we can all celebrate together.
