Strand Bonus serves as an alternate way to climb to the start of the Strand Hill downhill. Starting from Brush Creek Road take the Canal Trail to Strand Bonus. The Bonus is a rolling uphill that is longer than the road, but a more gradual, more shaded climb to the top. If you prefer singletrack over road we highly recommend taking Stand Bonus as it eliminates half of the steeper road climb.

Squirt Cycling Products was founded in South Africa by mountain bikers in 2003. The first product developed was Squirt Chain Lube, a new concept in chain lubrication. In 2004, Squirt became the official chain lube supplier at the inaugural Cape Epic, gaining popularity in Europe and in the US thereafter. Mountain biking legends Ned Overend from Specialized, Travis Brown from Trek and Mike Kloser (also international adventure racer) became early adopters and have used it ever since. Squirt is a strong supporter of mountain biking, gravel racing and NICA in the US.

Other products we produce are tire sealant, bike cleaner, skin protection balm and others. Although our products are available online, distribution in the US mainly takes place from our warehouse in Grand Junction via traditional sales channels through bike shops.
