GA-Ross Marble workday 5/1/10

This past Saturday we had a small-but-strong group turn out to finish buffing out the rock-armored sections in the first phase of the Georgia/Ross Marble singletrack trails. Thanks to some pointers during the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew classes, we’ve added reinforcement to sections of trail that would be otherwise unrideable for a few days after any rain. Come on out after it dries out and check out the new work!

Thanks to Shawn McCann for the photos.

Subaru IMBA Trail Care Crew Visit!

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 “sustainable” 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.
