This weekend was a marathon Maintenance weekend! Heavy equipment was donated for trail building by our good friend and VKBC member Jason Bacon, equipment use was donated from United Rentals, please give them a call or shoot them an email and thank them for letting us use their equipment!
No Sam’s were hurt in the making of this trail.
Tyrone having a blast with the Bobcat.
Joe you’re doing it wrong!
This weekend we worked on both Saturday and Sunday, the new BMX style trail is roughed in and will be ready to ride in a couple of weeks. Let me just say that it is amazing how easy it is so make trails when you don’t have to wheelbarrow 100 tons of dirt!
The weather was not friendly on Saturday or Sunday but a big thanks goes out to all the Volunteers that stuck around to help!

This Saturdays maintenance had a showing of about 12 volunteers, great turn out guys thanks for coming out.
Additions to the trails are as follows: a new beauty section as well as a small bridge was added by volunteers to Highway to Hell it is now a much more serine voyage away from the inferno.
Work will be starting on a brand new BMX style trail that will be opening up in the near future, please do not ride on the trail until it is ready, it only takes a few to destroy hours of work if a trail is ridden before it is ready. Thanks!
A shout out to one of our trail volunteers Mr. Strong, his inspiration has been instrumental in some newest additions to the park.

This past weekend was the first of many bike races at the North Point Trails.
For all of those of you out there that are not sure of what a Cyclocross race is let me explain. You get a roadie, give him a bike with slightly fatter tires and you point him/her in the direction of the trails. O yea and then you throw in a couple of obstacles that they need to run up/down or around. You let them do laps until they can barely lift their legs and then whoever is still alive at the end of the day gets a prize.
Silly Roadie trails are for riding!
This race was special as all, everything, 100% of the profits went directly into the trail fund. So next time you see a confused roadie tell them thanks.
Big thanks go out to Dario Perez of Tropical Cyclocross for having his event with us. Thanks goes out all of the sponsors including but not limited to Shutts & Bowen as well as Mack Cycle and Fitness and Aaron from Sidewalk Salads just to name a few. Please visit www.TropicalCyclocross.com for more details about the race series.

Today was a first for both the VKBC and for the North Point Trails. We had our first take a kid mountainbiking event. This event was coordinated with the help of our very own Tom Siddons and with the support of Mack Cycle and Fitness.
Food and Drinks after a long day on the trails!
Hotdogs and drinks were provided courtesy of the club.
We had a great turn out it is inspiring to see how many parents care about their children enough to peel them off of the TV and encourage them to have fun in the great out doors!
