• Meeting Announcement - October 2014

    Last month we voted to change the regular location of our monthly meetings to Bent River Brewery [512 24th St, Rock Island]. Our inaugural meeting at this new location will be on Monday Oct. 6th starting at 6:30 pm.

    BRB will have a limited menu of grilled food available for purchase and will also be providing a private bartender for our group (be sure to treat them well!). You are also welcome to bring in other food from the many neighboring restaurants.

    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.

    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: 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.
