Intersections | Knoxville, Tennessee
Supporting Trails. Supporting Communities. At Stan's, we believe real support means more than just supporting our products. It means supporting the people who use those products, and the trails and causes that matter to them. As part of this commitment, we've launched our Connection program, a way for us to donate to the causes that keep you riding.
We'll also be featuring riding communities and the people involved in supporting their local trail networks and the riders through the "Intersections" short film series by Brice Shirbach and other film and video features, we'll be taking a closer look at riding communities and causes, and the people who make them possible.
This is what sweat equity looks like: several years of volunteerism and grassroots efforts to take what a city once looked at as disposable tract of land, and transform it into an indispensable mountain bike paradise. Knoxville, Tennessee didn’t happen overnight, but the grit and determination of the mountain bike community has not only helped to engrain the trails as a bonafide city commodity, it has helped to cultivate a sense of community among it’s ever growing number of riders. Knoxville is purpose-built done right.
Who makes your riding possible? Have a trail advocacy group or charitable organization you'd like us to help you support? Let us know about them!
