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! 

Chapter Meeting

Our next Chapter meeting is on March 10th at 7:00 PM at the Claddagh Irish Pub (17800 Haggerty Road, Livonia).  We'll be discussing upcoming trail days, improvements for each trail, and other MCMBA events for the year!  See the meeting AGENDA for more details.

Congratulations to our 2015 FAFL winners!

Please join us in thanking our MCMBA FAFL winners for 2015! 

As we announced back in April, we've expanded our FAFL volunteer appreciation program to include all volunteer contributions to the chapter this year, not just trail work. To qualify, each of these volunteers reported at least 10 hours of boots on the ground trailwork or at least 30 hours of time on other chapter activities, such as helping to organize a race, hosting a riding clinic, or on duty as a National Mountain Bike Patroller. But that really doesn't tell the whole story - the average FAFL winner this year volunteered a full 40 hour work week on the trails, or three 40 hour work weeks on other activities!
