There's one last bit of land currently available for us to build new mountain bike trail on here in Woodstock and it lies on the north side of Little River in the Olde Rope Mill Park; so we felt it was important to get something built on it that would really bring some fresh miles to the area.
Due to unauthorized vehicle traffic on the road near Explorer (Rope Mill), Woodstock is closing the gate across the gravel road. Explorer is OPEN. For now, you can go around the gate to get to the trail.
We will be having a work party at Blanket's Creek on Saturday, April 19th. Many things to do: install the new flag pole on Dwelling, work on the Mos. Bite creek crossing, finish up the bottom of the flow line on VMT, etc. You can't beat these opportunities to make our trails even better. Bring gloves and water, we'll supply the tools and the lunch.
We are very excited to announce that IBEX Bikes will be at Blanket's Creek on Saturday, April 12th from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (weather permitting) with demo bikes available, so bring your ID, a credit card, and your favorite pedals so you can take a bike for a spin (flat pedals will also be available if you don't have your own or prefer to use the demo pedals).
Also, be sure to check out their website here.
"At IBEX our goal is simple: to deliver top quality bikes at prices well below typical retail on similar bicycle models found in the local bike shops by streamlining distribution and eliminating inflated profit margins. With IBEX Bicycles you buy directly from the bicycle manufacturer.
We are committed to producing fine bicycles and establishing a reputation for excellence. To all reports, we're on the right track with many happy customers out there already enjoying their new IBEX bikes.
