We love it when bike companies ‘give back’ and support the local bike scenes and leading the way right now here in Oz, and around the world, is Specialized via their Soil Searching program.  Soil Searching is a movement to recognize, celebrate and support the unsung heroes of mountain biking; the trail builders and trail organizations who tirelessly maintain and shape what our sport is built on. Trail building requires equipment, time, hard work and some money to pay for much of the above to help support the development and maintenance of the MTB trail networks around Australia, Specialized Soil Searching is committed to hosting dig days, local fundraisers and sponsoring trail builders to create and provide opportunities to further the development and maintenance of trail systems that are the lifeblood of our sport.
