I love being on the front end of new trailblazing!  There is something about being able to ride with your family/friends and commentate on the building of each turn of the trail.

I am super ecstatic to announce that January 2013 could prove to be a BIG month in seeing approval for a NEW off-road trail system in my area.

Thanks to the faithful efforts of our Cape Fear SORBA president, Greg Brinson, the Pender County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board has passed a resolution of support of a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between Cape Fear SORBA and Pender County Schools in regards to a new trail system adjacent to Heidi-Trask High School.

As it stands today, Cape Fear SORBA is on track to meet with Pender County Commissioners and Education Board on January 7th and 14th.  If everything is approved then CFSORBA could possibly start mapping and building trails before Spring 2013.

Spread the good news and I ask for continued support my bike club, Cape Fear SORBA, continues fulfilling its vision to create, enhance and preserve great trail experiences for mountain bikers in the Cape Fear Region of North Carolina.
