Text: GoldenCo to 797979 or click here to put some money in the pot and donate to the bonus cash purse 

The Golden Giddyup is a non-profit organization that was created to support sustainable trail building and maintenance on some of the most heavily trafficked mountain bike trails in Colorado’s Front Range. The organization holds their namesake event each September in conjunction with Jeffco Open Space and donates 100% of their proceeds and thousands of hours worth of trail work. 

While improving the trails, Giddyup volunteers also improve relationships with Jeffco and City staff as well as with other park visitors, representing mountain bikers as stewards of the trails and locally engaged citizens.
