Medicine Wheel's mission has always been a simple one:
To maintain and expand trail access for mountain bikers and all trail users in the Pikes Peak region.
How do we do that? Read on:
We keep in touch with the local land management agencies, like the US Forest Service, Colorado State Parks, the Colorado Springs Parks Department, and the El Paso County Parks Department. By maintaining good communication with the agencies which control our parks & forests, we help them avoid problems with mountain cyclists before they happen.
We help to maintain trails for city, state and federal agencies in the Pikes Peak region, along with other volunteer groups throughout the area. Some of the areas we have helped maintain include Palmer Park, Ute Valley Park, Garden of the Gods Park, Cheyenne Mountain State Park, and trails throughout Pike National Forest.
With today's limited budgets, land management agencies are finding it harder and harder to build new trails for their users. Medicine Wheel steps in to help build trails that benefit all trail users and not just mountain bikers.

Education & Outreach
We educate riders about being courteous to other trail users and about proper riding techniques and trail useage.
National Mountain Bike Patrol Sponsors
Medicine Wheel also sponsors a local chapter of the National Mountain Bike Patrol. Patrollers inform, assist and educate mountain bikers and other trail users. The fundamental goal of bike patrols is to ensure trail access for mountain bikers.
