Overland Mountain Bike Association devotes hundreds of volunteer hours each year building trails, maintaining trails, and working with land agencies to make sure mountain bikers continue to have access. The next time you’re out working up a sweat, grinding up a hill, or weaving down a singletrack, remember the folks who came before you. And of course, enjoy the ride. (And, if you’ve never grabbed a McCleod or a Pulaski or a rock bar, check out the Overland Mountain Bike Association calendar for trail days. We’d love to have you come out and get dirty with us.)
Get Out and Enjoy Some Newly-Opened Local Trails: Young Gulch, closed for years due to flood damage and wildfire has officially re-opened and is running great in 2020. The Hucka Yucca line between the Shoreline Trail and South Valley Loop in Lory State Park also opened last year, and just got a socially-distanced spring touch-up from Overland members. While you’re out at Lory, be sure to ride Kimmons and check out the new play features. At Coyote Ridge Natural Area, the Ridge-to-Ridge trail just opened on April 30th and offers a mellow connection to Loveland’s Prairie Ridge, while at the other end of the spectrum, the On-the-Rocks Trail at Bobcat Ridge—opened in 2019—offers stunning views and a unique collection of black- and double-black diamond features.
Land Agency Liaisons Needed: The Overland Trails Committee still needs several new Land Agency Liaisons. We will be working on lots of great projects this season with the five land agencies we partner with and the Land Agency Liaisons are critical to organizing these efforts. If you would like to be the point of contact between Overland and one of these agencies, please contact out Trails Committee Chairperson, Mick Syzek, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details regarding the expectations and responsibilities of our Liaisons, please click here to download the Overland Trails Committee Liaisons information sheet.
