Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship fundraiser bike

State Bicycle Co. and Dynaplug have collaborated again to release the Meerkat Klunker. The bike will be auctioned off to raise money for the Sierra Butte Trail Stewardship. The bike’s stunning paint job has been created by Curtis Bullock and is inspired by crystal clear skies seen from a campsite. The bike is tricked out with components from White Industries, Thomson, Paul Components and others. Suggested donations are $5 and up. Check out the fundraiser here.

New skills park in Victoria, Minnesota

A new mountain bike park has opened in Victoria, Minnesota, and there are jumps, technical trails, wooden features and skills zones. Paradise Playground was a partnership between the Three Rivers Park District and the One Track Mind Foundation, which has been funding trails in the Minnesota area.

MTB trails open in Jackson County, Minnesota

Another mountain bike trail park opened in Worthington, Minnesota and it’s designed for riders of all skill levels. There are beginner, intermediate, and some jump trails. Class 1 e-bikes are also welcome at the Belmont County Park.

MMB rejoins IMBA

The Metro Mountain Bikers, a local advocacy group based in southeast Wisconsin, has joined IMBA under the local affiliate program.

“Metro was a long-time IMBA Member that eventually outgrew the IMBA membership benefits. Why did they rejoin? Local contracts required MMB to establish their own 501c3, insurance and other services formerly provided by IMBA,” said IMBA in an Instagram post “Essentially, the conclusion was that MMB had to double pay for the same benefits a full membership offered. The IMBA affiliate program right-sized the expense-benefit ratio for the needed services.”
