May is National Bike Month and kicking off the celebration we'll be racing at the Dirt, Sweat, and Gears 12 Hour Endurance Mountain bike race May 15th in Fayetteville, Tennessee.  The main event for the weekend will be the 12 hr endurance mountain bike race. From 9 am to 9 pm riders will compete against the clock, each other and most importantly themselves on the 10+ mile course on a mix of flat and fast field trails. 

12 hours you might ask?  Well, we're passionate about cycling!  Cycling is part of a sustainable lifestyle, is alternative transportation, helps the environment, and also raises eco awareness.   It seems that most people think of bikes as recreation but in our sustainability consulting with business and individuals, we encourage employers and workers to consider cycling as alternative transportation as well as part of a sustainable business strategy.
If you are nearby, look for us wearing Taiga Company cycling kits purchased from Voler Cycling Apparel.  Voler is committed to business sustainability and furthering sustainability concepts into their business through their commitment to reducing their impact on the environment. 
Or stop by the tent and say hi!  The Taiga tent will display the Taiga Company banner purchased from GreenBanners.  They are the original green banner / signage company and do not use any form of vinyl materials or toxic solvent inks.  They print high resolution, full-color photo-quality graphics and text on a wide variety of materials using ecologically-sound renewable, recycled / recyclable and biodegradable materials.
We'll have organic and bamboo t-shirts to give away.  The only catch?  With a total elevation gain of +/- 1500′ per 10 mile lap, you have to push me up the hills!
Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
