Upcoming PMBC Major Event
2018 Mining Country Challenge - Saturday, March 17, 2018
Saddle up, Pard'ner, it's time to hit the trail! And some trail it is! We're not talking about some easy little jaunt into the desert on some mule with no name (apologies to America) with a pick and shovel slung over your shoulder, no, Sir-ee! However, when you see what you'll be climbing, you may want to reconsider that mule! Or maybe get a mountain goat! Climb, climb, then climb some more. That's the Mining Country Challenge. It's not for everyone, but if you aspire to put your climbing abilities to the test, this really is the ride for you. See Major Events for more ride and registration information.
