Church of Dirt Trail Building
Once again, the Monday Night Church of Dirt will be building sweet single-track in 2014. Come out and get dirty, meet great folks young and old, and add to our fantastic trail system. Build nights start May 12th and will continue every Monday for the season. We will meet at 5:30 pm each Monday in the Centennial Trail-head parking lot. Our build nights will focus in the Monte Cristo / Columbia Kootenay area since it is easy for people to get to on a week night. No experience needed – just a passion for the mountains and the pleasure of riding or hiking what you have worked on. We will meet for a social after each build night at the Steam Shovel. Reminders, updates, and location will be posted on the Bhubble before each build night.
Rossglen Bike Park Revitalization Project
Rossland’s Rossglen Bike Park is getting a facelift to reflect the changing desires of local mountain bike users. Rossglen has been a fixture for the biking community for the past eight years but is in need of upgrades and expansion, and a group of volunteers are working with the City of Rossland to see that happen this summer. In addition to new wood features, the jump lines will be rebuilt with beginner and intermediate tabletop lines. The pump track, which is comprised of a loop of tight berms, rollers and features, will be built in phases as funding and volunteer hours are available. In addition, the large wall ride at the park is getting refurbished and will be utilized for a youth graffiti art project funded by the Youth Action Network (YAN). Volunteer build days will occur early in the summer and anyone interested is encouraged to attend and lend a hand in the revitalization project. For more information, contact Ryan Kuhn at (250) 231-9343.
