CAMP ROBINSON MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE
Creating 40 miles of premier mountain biking trails on a military installation.
This ride will be on relatively smooth singletrack that is not technical. For less experienced/less fit riders, travel will be 8-11 miles on easy trails. For more experienced riders, travel will be 10-14 miles over hillier trails.
The founders of Central Arkansas Recreational Pedalers (CARP), the group responsible for creating 40 miles of premier mountain biking trails on a 33,000-acre military installation, will tell us how they created first-class mountain bike trails on undeveloped timber land within a military installation, and how they succeeded with little in the way of financial resources. Topics will include trail design, trail construction, working with volunteers, and working with the military to gain access to the military installation and permission to construct trails.
The trails are top quality for riders of all abilities and have received accolades from riders around the country.
“Awesome trail system of 40 miles of rip roaring super silky singletrack…to make any rider leave with a smile.”
“This is great place to ride for cyclists of all skill levels. Climbs are short, and most grades are easy. Just lots of hard-packed singletrack, twisting and turning through the lush woods that carpet the area.”
Leaders: Basil Hicks, co-founder, Central Arkansas Recreational Pedalers (CARP); Gary Lamb, co-founder, Central Arkansas Recreational Pedalers (CARP)
