JUNE

Trails are now OPEN sunrise to sunset!!

We have been working hard the last few months to build new trails, made some modifications, and have some fun! The next stage in the extension to Stairway to Heaven is now complete, adding about an additional mile of singletrack. With narrow bridges, sharp banked turns, and large hills, this challenging trail is rated as Advanced. We opened the trail in February, as we celebrated the 4th anniversary of the Virginia Key Bicycle Club. Here are some photos of the process:
