• Meeting Announcement - November 2014

    The November membership meeting will be at Bent River Brewery [512 24th St, Rock Island] on Monday Nov. 3rd starting at 6:30 pm. Meet in the tasting room.

    BRB will be serving all you can eat chili (Uncommon Stout Roast Beef Chili or Smoked Chicken, Beans and Corn White Chili) for $10.50 + tax. We will also have a private bartender for our group (be sure to treat them well!). You can also bring your own food if you aren't in the mood for chili.

    The meeting agenda and previous month's minutes will be available in the Members forum shortly.

    Come out to socialize, hear the latest local MTB news, and enjoy great food and drinks.

  • WBP Trailwork

    Installing new semi-permanent signage at Westbrook Park.

    New semi-permanent signage being installed at WBP.

    UPDATE (10/17/14): The 201 loop is now fully connected to the 101 loop and ready for tires! This brings the total amount of singletrack at the park up to 2.8 miles. We are working on flagging out the next loop which when completed should add another 3/4 mile.


    Trail is still being constructed at Westbrook Park. FORC has partnered with the City of Dewitt to design, build, and maintain a system of singletrack trail at the park for use by mountain bikes as well as hikers and other foot traffic.

    Four loops (101, 102, 201, & 205) are now signed and open for riding which brings the total amount of new trail to 2.8 miles. However, we still need your help! Keep an eye on the Westbrook Park sub forum and the FORC Facebook page for announcements of upcoming trail work days. Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who have already put their sweat into the trail system!

    UPDATE: A few articles with details about yesterdays Park Board Meeting concerning the Sylvan Island bridge.

     

    The city of Moline has deemed the bridge providing access to the Sylvan Island natural area and trail network structurally unsound and unsafe for public use. Gates have been erected blocking access to the island via the bridge. The trails on the island and the island itself will remain open to the public but will only be accessible by boat.
