MORC- February News

 Minnesota Spring
February 2018 News

More Trails? Yes Please!

Last month we shared news of the development being incorporated into the Battle Creek Master Plan. Today we’re very excited to share with you that approximately 5.4 miles of fresh singletrack has been approved for construction within Edina’s largest park- Braemar Park!

Congratulations to the City of Edina for completing the arduous process of developing the Braemar Master Plan, we look forward to a new riding opportunity coming to the West Metro!

Suds. Studs. and Singletrack

A heartfelt THANKS to our friends at Able Seedhouse & Brewery for hosting a MTB film night back in January to benefit MORC. Longtime supporters Angry Catfish Bicycle Shop + Coffee Bar, and Salsa Cycles provided complimentary bike demos, and many area industry friends contributed schwag to ensure a well attended event.

We’ll be coordinating more community events with area brewery partners throughout the year. Stay tuned to our Facebook events calendar to learn more!

Annual Trail Steward & Dirt Boss Meeting

Each year, MORC trail leadership gathers to connect, discuss, and collaborate on larger organizational initiatives, as well as review the maintenance and development plans for each trail. In addition to our annual budgeting and trail planning processes, this session provides opportunity for trail leaders to guide our initiatives. The MORC volunteer network is comprised of over 100 individuals, half of which have received training and hands-on instruction for sustainable trail design, building principles, and maintenance techniques. These individuals literally make your ride a reality- be sure to say thanks when seeing them out on the trails!






Trail Update

The dreaded and sensitive Freeze/Thaw period is upon us as we welcome the sunshine and embrace feelings of Spring. Please be aware of the upcoming, system-wide, extended trail closures:
