The Specialized Conservation Ambassadors Program has launched ahead of Earth Day. Specialized is supporting trail builders and stewards the same way as their athletes. And, doing so as part of Soil Searching program and conservation efforts.
The global initiative recognizes, celebrates and supports the trail builders. They help create and maintain mountain biking trails around the world.
Since 2018, Soil Searching’s goal is to support these unsung heroes by empowering them to not only do trail work, but to educate riders at the local level about the benefits of maintained trails, and to teach the impact that nature, certain riding techniques and the climate has on these trail networks.
