The Big South Fork Epic Weekend is drawing near!
If you are planning on camping with us Friday June 4, and/or Saturday June 5, please take a moment to register here. Registering online ensures that you and your friends will have a place to sleep.
We need to get a solid head count, as camping space is limited.
Thanks to on-going sponsorship from Subaru of America, the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew program is crankin’ again in 2010. Two teams of trail experts will travel year-round throughout North America and beyond, leading trailwork sessions, meeting with land managers, and working with IMBA-affiliated clubs and members to improve mountain biking opportunities.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association is coming to Tennessee. Chris and Leslie Kehmeier of the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew will be in Knoxville for a Trailbuilding School. The Crews teach â€œsustainableâ€ trail building, which means building trails that last a long time and require minimal maintenance. This helps reduce trail damage, protects the environment, and enhances visitor enjoyment.
For more information, please contact Brian Hann.

AMBC will have a weekend-long camping/riding/trail work trip at Big South Fork on June 4-6. Come up Friday for an evening Grand Gap group ride and camp out. Saturday morning we’ll get up and spend a couple of hours doing trail maintenance; after lunch we’ll spend the rest of the day RIDING! More group rides will happen Sunday.
There will be groups for all levels of riders â€” nobody will miss out on a chance to ride some of East TN’s best trails.
We’ll post more information and updates here as the weekend draws nearer.
