Island Lake Spring Demo Day, May 7th

Started in 2006 by local industry veteran James Knight, the Island Lake Spring Bike Demo is now in its 11th year bringing the best bikes in the market to your trail.  It's a great chance to talk face to face with people who live the life: building, riding, and maintaining the bikes you want to own. Then, take a few out for a test spin on the road and trails at Island Lake!

See mcmba.org/demo for more information!

 

Spring membership drive

IMBA has a spring membership promotion running, with perks for joining/renewing members and potential $ for the chapter!

We're close - so close - to our growth target. Just a few more new members joining (or existing members renewing early!) in the next few days and the chapter will receive a nice $ bonus - enough to pay for a new 75' bridge on a trail, or add a dozen McLeods to the tool trailer, or provide 200 lunches for volunteer trailbuilders!

This is your opportunity to really make a difference. Please renew or join today!

 

Sapling Loop

Congratulations to the City of Novi and our volunteers for winning the Michigan Recreation and Park Association's Design Award - Outstanding Park for the Lakeshore Park toddler singletrack! Now formally named the Sapling Loop, this beginner trail will provide tomorrow's mountain bikers a safe, fun place to develop balance and skills. 

This is your award, for a trail designed, built, and funded by our members and volunteers - Thanks!

 

 

 

Volunteer of the Year 2016

Congrats to our MCMBA volunteer of the year - Michael Faulk! 

For the past several years Michael has invested much of his life into building and polishing Lakeshore Park's trail features, especially the signature Pump Track. If you've ridden Lakeshore you've probably seen him out there, shovel in hand, tweaking a lip or berm until the flow was perfect. 

Thanks Michael!
