New in 2013

    Quite a few people have asked about or commented on the status of the Corby North Trail.  As far as I know, construction of the walking path is complete and the new sections of the trail have been laid out or already implemented, including the 85ft underground tube that we will ride through going under the walking path.  The new Corby North trail will have the same old corby north characteristics with a lot of new terrain and slightly more distance without ever having to cross the new walking path.

     Also, there will be new trail in the Sunbridge/River trail.  It is still in the planning phases but should be available for the Bike Festival on May 25 & 26.  We have a lot of unused territory on and around that trail system, so we want to optimize what can be built over there.

      The St. Joseph Bike Festival will be held on Saturday May 25th and Sunday May 26th.  Anyone wanting to be involved in the 2013 St. Joseph Bike Festival, meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Horizon Cycling at 6pm.  Planning started back in September of 2012, but there are still several opportunities available for those who are interested.   In 2013, the St. Joseph Bike Festival will also host the 2013 Robidoux Roundup MTB race, as well as the Kids Tour of St. Joseph and several other events.

      Last, but definitely not least, Trailwork! Trailwork days are usually announced via the STJMTB(st joe mountain bike) blog or the Joetown MTB Facebook page.  Anyone that does go out and do trailwork , please post when and where and how long you worked at one of these two place so we can keep track of how many volunteer hours go into maintain our trail system.  Any questions or comments, just comment to this post.
