The going rate for new trail construction these days is about $5/ft…How many feet can you help us build in 2018??!!
Here’s how you can help raise funds on Colorado Gives Day:
It’s November, it’s cold outside and there is snow on the ground…what better time to check out what is going on with trails in our area?! Overland continues to work hard with our land agency partners to bring you more and better trails. We help maintain and improve existing trails, we propose and help build new trails and we are working to connect our trails into systems. If you are a trail user of any kind, check what we have been up to on our Advocacy page. Even better, get involved. The more support we have from the community, the more we can accomplish.
Your Volunteer Stewardship helps maintain recreational mountain bike access on our public lands. The Trails Committee works to facilitate, encourage, and schedule your volunteer efforts. Members liaison with our regional partnering land agencies to define seasonal new trail construction and maintenance needs. Meetings are open to all members and the public. It may be the end of the trail building season, but planning for 2018 is already underway!
Our club’s final member meeting- the Season Finale- is Thursday October 26th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at New Belgium Brewing. We’ll celebrate our accomplishments, give some awards, share some food with friends, and end with the traditional bike pub crawl. Costumes highly recommended… you may even win a prize if yours is the best! Hope to see our members there.
Even though the season will “officially” be over, we will be continuing our 20+ year history of helping build and maintain the trails at Lory State Park with our annual Friends of Lory Trail Day, Saturday, October 28th from 8:30am to 3pm. We are not sure yet which trails we will be working on, but we are sure that the work will help improve the trail experience at one of our favorite places to hold our events and ride our bikes. Lunch will be provided. We will meet at the Soldier Canyon Group Area (https://goo.gl/maps/AWxAeN8B65A2) and head out to the work areas from there. You can see more details on the calendar page (http://overlandmtb.org/event/friends-lory-trails-day/).

The GiddyUp! Film Tour is returning to Fort Collins on Saturday, October 14th,
as part of the 2017 CO MTB Summit.
If you missed it in the Spring, here’s your second chance! Join OMBC and attendees of the 2017 CO MTB Summit for a screening of the 2017 GiddyUp! Film Tour.
Not sure what GiddyUp! is all about??? – From the GiddyUp! website: “GiddyUP! Film Tour brings bicycle lovers together for a unique social event featuring the best in mountain bike cinema. Each event kicks off an hour or so before show time so you can knock back a cold one, catch up with riding buddies, check out the latest gear and talk about ride plans for the coming season.
We partner with local shops and IMBA chapters and affiliates wherever possible to ensure that a portion of our proceeds goes right back into the local bike community building trails and supporting advocacy efforts.”
