Massive thanks to the volunteers, racers, and sponsors for making another great FORC event possible! We started the day with greasy trails that morphed into super grippy hero dirt by the afternoon races. Having the race was definitly the right call. Also a big shout out to the SBP trail crew who busted their butts improving trail drainage last week which had a huge effect on trail conditions today.
Race results have been posted here.
FORC volunteers building trail at Westbrook Park.
Things are chugging along at Westbrook Park in Dewitt. 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.
Two loops have now been completed yielding around 2 miles of trail . 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.

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.
