October 11th in Forest Hill Park
JRPS Trail Work season is beginning. This year we’ll be starting out in Forest Hill Park with a few small trail repairs, moving on to North Bank and then onto building some new trail!
Our first trail work date is October 11th in Forest Hill Park. Meet at the dam across the lake at 9am (look for the city truck) and we’ll walk to the work site from there. Parking will be limited on the west side of the park due to the farmer’s market in the morning – Reedy Creek area may be your best option. We’ll be be working on the final part of the re-routes we did last year on the east side of the park. We’ll provide the tools, all you have to bring is water, gloves and energy.
Take a Kid MTB Day
“Hey all! Thank you, thank you, thank you for a great “Take Your Kid Mountain Biking” event on Saturday. My daughter LOVED it. Anxiety ridden at first, but in the end, wanted more She is beyond stoked and said she wants to grows up and “be an expert” like the volunteer Sue who was there on Saturday helping her.” About 4 years ago RVA MORE had a vision to build a skills area to have an area where kids and families can learn to ride off-road. Holding this type of an event on Belle Isle is so much fun to see the kids learn how to really ride a bike. This is the 2nd year River City Women’s Racing, Ride Kore, REI and RVA MORE held Take a Kid Mountain Bike Day. Thank you to all the volunteers, supporters and to the participants for coming out. This shows how a cycling community can come together and make it even better.
