$2,000 donated to Kijabe Mountain Biking in Kenya

Trail One Components is proud to announce it has donated $2,000 to Kijabe Mountain Biking to build and maintain the fantastic trails in Kijabe, Kenya.

Trail One co-founder Brian Kennedy visited Kijabe in December of 2017 and had a blast with the locals. The classic BKXC video "The Mountain Bike Safari" is where Brian first rode Hell's Gate National Park and realized Hell's Gate was a perfect name for Trail One's first set of grips.

The Kijabe MTB crew has developed more than 15 miles of trail over the past few years. They have turned overgrown and neglected pathways into thrilling mountain bike descents and polished up existing access trails for better connectivity.

The trails are in such good shape that the homegrown Kijabe Enduro has developed into a full blown stop on the East Africa Enduro Series, which will have five events in Kenya and one in Uganda in 2023.

Our donation has been used to pay local workers to build and maintain trails as well as buy shovels, clippers and various tools.

This donation was made possible from the proceeds of our Hell's Gate Grips. We set aside $1 for every Trail One product and periodically donate the funds to deserving trail networks. 

The more products we sell, the more dollars we will donate. If your nonprofit trail stewardship could use some cash, hit us up with a proposal on our contact page.
