Upcoming Trail Daze!

We are getting so very close to finishing two MAJOR projects and launching a new one.

The final push to complete the Monbo trail at Lake Norman State Park is this Saturday, March 10, 8:30 - 12:30.  We'll gather once again in the parking lot at the Itusi trailhead and shuttle to the work zones.  Morning coffee will be donated by Starbucks of Mooresville. 

bOb and Jeff have completed the machine work this past weekend in preparation for the 3/10 work day.    
For the coming weekend, we have 2 projects to complete.  
1) Finish the tread work on the machine cut trail.  
2) Rock amour 4 or 5 gulley’s to reinforce them against erosion.  These projects will use the rock that was harvested last month along with the gravel that was transported into the woods.
After that, it is just a matter of getting the inspections done and the signage up (both responsibility of the state)..........and then RIDE.  The Monbo Loop will be able to be ridden on the work day, by volunteers, but remains closed until the inspection process is complete.

After trail work, a lunch celebration of BBQ will be provided by Cool Breeze Cyclery.  Bring your bike and enjoy what's shaping up to be an awesome day!

Final construction of the "Figure 8" at the USNWC will resume on Saturday, March 24, 9:00 - 1:00.  This push will be to tie up the loose ends and hopefully have the entire trail open by April 1st.  Your efforts would be greatly appreciated!

Jetton Park
We have received approval to construct trail at Jetton Park in Cornelius.  The trail will be short (~1.25 miles) but sweet and will ultimately offer the physically challenged an opportunity to ride the trail in specially designed mountain "trikes".  Trail construction will begin in the very near future; let's see if we can complete this effort before the heat of summer...

And as always, we thank you for your support!
