Soil Searching

Soil Searching is a movement backed by Specialized to support the unsung heroes of mountain biking; the trail builders who tirelessly maintain and shape what our sport is built on.

⁠In 2020, our goal is to host Soil Searching Dig Days once a month, with an aim of encouraging more mountain bikers to give up a morning/afternoon or even a day every few weeks to get involved and help maintain their local trails. ⁠

We'll be posting new Dig Days as and when the dates are finalised, so be sure to keep checking back. We'll also be posting our partner Trail Crew Dig Days here, so instead of having Soil Searching Dig Days once a month, you can hit up the trails and earn your stoke as much as you like!

Please note: Yes, we're backed by Specialized, but that's not to say other brands can't get involved. Come along, pick up a shovel and lets help maintain the trails together. Got an idea, or know of any Dig Crews that could do with a bit of help on a new feature? Hit us up:
