MORC News- March

 
Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists Newsletter

Where’s the Beef…um, we mean Dirt

All area trails are closed for the bi-annual freeze/thaw period as we await the underlying frost to dissipate, but never fear- Dirt Season will soon be upon us (historically trails open early-mid April). With the Spring thaw will come some much needed maintenance and tender loving care from our community of volunteers- people just like you! Each trail hosts a weekly trailwork session April – October, stay tuned to your favorite trail’s Facebook page, or visit the community forums, for details on when/where you can get involved.

“Fat and Happy”

The crew at Prairie Sportsman recently spent a couple days with MORC filming a segment on fat bikes and Winter riding! Catch the recent episode at prairiesportsman.org

Won’t you be my neighbor?

MORC is thrilled to partner with local Minneapolis advocates working to engage and inform our neighbors, unite the bike community, rally advocates, and partner with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board in an effort to see bike parks (bicycle playgrounds, pump tracks, skills courses, and single track) added to our neighborhood and regional parks.
Check out the MPLS Bike Parks initiative, and be sure to join the conversation on Facebook. Together, we can bring more off-road riding opportunities to Minneapolis!

     Ridership Survey

As an organization, we often speak in terms of “ridership” rather than membership. Though membership provides up to 30% of our annual fundraising, we know the trails support a much broader range of users than is reflected by our membership. So, to help represent the interests of all, we’ve put together the following survey to gain a better understanding of our community, and how to improve upon creating equitable access to trails for all. Please take the time to help us do better by completing this survey. Link to Survey
