Winter trail report: 2/26

Wow, what a change a week can make! Here we are, still a ton of snow, but highs of 30-40+ degrees with no sign of letting up. However, most nights are cooling off to offer some adventurous sunrise rides if you’re up for it! Also, remember, we’re in Michigan and it’s not even March yet. Don’t call it a comeback!

2020 Round-up: The Stats

Nobody needs to hear about how 2020 went a little differently than planned, so let’s skip it and talk about the good stuff! This is the first in a series of posts about what was accomplished at MEMBA trails in 2020. So let’s get right into it and talk some stats!

Jamestown Trail Update

Targeting 5-7 miles of professionally built single track on approximately 150 wooded acres featuring multiple large ravines.

  • MEMBA has contracted with the International Mountain Biking Association for trail design (early 2021) via initial funding.
  • A project team is in place consisting of Ted Schneider, Joe Lampen, Kerry Bairski, Kirk Walter, Aaron Jones, Tim Lampen, & Jen Jones.

How can you help this trail get built?
