    FORC is once again participating in IMBA's Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day! This worldwide event encourages kids to foster an appreciation for nature and get active through the sport of mountain biking.

    Mark your calendars for Saturday October 4th from 10am to 1pm at Sunderbruch Park in Davenport, IA.

    Participants will learn about simple bike maintenance tips, trail riding skills, practice skills on a short obstacle course, and hit the trails on an adult led group ride on the green (easy) trails at the park.

    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 (9/10/13): Missman Inc. Structural Assessment of Sylvan Island Bridge (PDF 5.1 MB)

    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.

    2014 FORC Time Trial Series

    You're not crazy. I moved it to Saturday when I realized that my cousin is getting married on the 28th (who gets married on a Sunday?) so I will be out of town.
