When: February 10 – 13, 2011
Where: Birmingham and Pelham, Alabama
Who: Birmingham Urban Mountain Peddlers (BUMP), Alabama State Parks
What: The local club, BUMP has been working with the land managers at Oak Mountain State Park (a phenomenal model for a state park, with recreational opportunities that would meet everyone’s needs and provide incentive for outdoor-newbies to get outside) to build more singletrack in the park, including new singletrack around the existing dirt roads that riders use. We built about 1,000 of new trail around the dirt access road.
Color Commentary: I wrote all about how good of a job BUMP does in their advocacy work in my IMBA blog post. This club is a model sustainable club, and a good example for anyone wanting to increase their trail access.
