The MWBA Pancake Breakfast is a membership drive and fundraiser to help Mount Wilson Bicycling Association purchase and maintain tools, trailbuilding materials, and to cover all other expenses that go towards our stewardship mission of trail work, trail courtesy, and conservation. As restrictions on outdoor gatherings ease we are super excited to see the community gathered together again and absolutely covered in sticky pancake syrup and giveaway prizes! This year we are taking the long view in appreciating all of the trails and cycling opportunities near the forest where we volunteer and setting up griddles at Verdugo Park on Sunday, April 10th starting at 9am. Plan your ride accordingly!
To reduce paper waste and encourage social distancing, please join or renew your membership and purchase tickets ahead of time at the link above, or bring your phone and purchase more tickets morning of at the park. We’ll have membership bundles ready for pick-up if you’re a new or renewing member. We’ve got three different ways to support MWBA at this event:
$10 Breakfast – Each $10 ticket includes a pancake breakfast plus TWO chances to win a set of incredible prizes from our generous sponsors.
$40 Join or Renew MWBA – New and renewing MWBA members will receive TEN chances to win prizes in our drawing, a custom MWBA Purist Waterbottle, MWBA socks, and a new MWBA handlebar bell, PLUS all the great benefits provided to members from IMBA.
$5 Prize Drawing Donation – Purchase additional chances to win some amazing prizes from REI, Road Runner Bags, Patagonia, Leatt, Velo Orange, Advanced Dynamics, and more of our great sponsors.
Here’s the plan:
EAT PANCAKES – 9:00a – HOT FOOD AT AT VERDUGO PARK
