Public Meetings and Winter Bike Fashion Show in the News

Last Week

The Capital City Trail paving wrapped up but the bridge at Longford Terrace is still out. 

Winter Bike Fashion Show was a success! We are very thankful to everyone who helped make it happen, the volunteers, models, and everyone who came to watch. Check out the wonderful coverage we were given by Channel 3.

Life got busy and we had to push the date back a little later this year but it will be a good time regardless. There will be lots of low key contests for ALL ability and age riders. Don't know how to jump? Come learn! Family friendly, we cannot stress this enough. There is no rain date so if trails are muddy it will be canceled and y'all will have to wait till next year. Meet at the playground jump area. More info is available here
