Help FORC help River Action help the QC!
Only two more Taming Tune Ups remain and the main event is fast approaching. Join FORC this and next Thursday (8/28 & 9/4) @ 5:30 pm to get a taste of Illiniwek singletrack. **If the trails are closed, the MTB portion of the tune up will be canceled.**
We are also looking for volunteers to help put on the main event. Spend a couple of hours helping and receive a free t-shirt and pizza after the event! Click here for volunteer details.
FORC is planning on ordering more jerseys this fall but we need a new design first! This is where you can contribute. We will be holding a jersey design contest and accepting artwork submissions until September 5th.
For contest details, to post submissions, and view the current design candidates see this thread: 2014 Jersey Design Contest

Things are moving along 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.
Three loops are now signed and open for riding which brings the total amount of singletrack trail built so far to 2.3 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.
