Event Reminder: Halloween Group Ride!!! Moved to 5pm!

Hey everyone, just a quick reminder that this weekend we have a Halloween group ride at Blue Clay! This is Armando Sanchez’s senior project so you BETTER show up for the ride! Come in costume and have a chance to win a gift certificate to Two Wheeler Dealer! Candy will be there as well for all to enjoy (no hording the candy!). We have moved the ride to 5pm so we have plenty of light. Its going to be slightly chilly so make sure you dress warm enough! Of course helmets are a requirement! Hope to see you there!

Come out for the Halloween Ride!

Bike for Tots Event

Just a quick event heads up for everyone. Our friends at ECVelo are putting on an awesome event as they do every year. The details are below.
6th Annual BIKE for TOTS – MTB Race, Road Ride & Trail Run
The 2011 edition of Bike for Tots is scheduled for November 20th.  As in past years it will consist of 3 separate events. A Cross-Country MTB Race, Road Ride and Trail Run starting and ending at the same location (the Bike Post Trails, Falkland NC). The entry fee is an unwrapped toy with value greater than $15 ($20 cash without a toy).  This is meant to be a fun event to help make Christmas a little more special for some local children while getting those of the athletic persuasion outside for healthy competition.  In the end we all win!
Full event details and schedule available here:

Weekend Update

Hey everyone! Hope you are looking forward to a beautiful fall weekend! We have the short event update coming to you but first a couple of small things.

First of all back a couple of months ago we were awarded the IMBA HucknRoll Grant! You may have seen it in the regional trail news that IMBA sends out on occasion. Well I am happy to announce that we have received the funds! The exact time we will use the money has yet to be decided but it will go towards a kid friendly workday at some point in the future. Lets teach them how this workday thing goes young!

In addition, with the time change looming the ladies of Cape Fear SORBA will be changing up their schedule for the ladies only ride. The ride will now take place at 9:30am on the first and third Sundays of each month. It will start AFTER the Brunswick Brawl on Nov 6th.  For questions or more info you can email the ride leaders SueMay ( or Natalia (

On Sunday it will be another wonderful trailgating day! Kirsten will be maintaining the table, with help from friends throughout the day. Stop by and grab a Clif Bar (only a few left!) and ask about all the fun stuff we got going on!

One Day of Service with Troop 274: Workday at Blue Clay Saturday from 9am to 3pm

Also don’t forget that there will be a workday at Blue Clay this weekend with the Boy Scouts of Troop 274.This is expected to be a very big workday. How big you ask? Oh so very big. Like 50 to 100 boy scouts big. Like bobcat will be in use big. Like we need people to come out and help big! Cape Fear SORBA members will be working right along side scouts from Troop 274 to improve a section of trail that has needed work since the large amounts of rain we recieved recently. We are having crush and run dropped off by the county, hopefully the use of a bobcat, and several concrete blocks to lay down as a foundation. We will be elevating this section of trail so that in the future it doesn’t turn into a mud bog! The workday will run from 9AM TO 3PM. There will be a lunch provided but we have to know how many people may be coming! So email Blue Clay Trail Coordinator Barry Wray at if you are coming.

Trail-gating at Blue Clay Sunday from 10am-2pm

Last but not least, I will be trail-gating this weekend at the Blue Clay Bike Park from 10am-2pm. Hopefully the trails will have dried out a bit by then! So come out and say hi, buy some raffle tickets, and check out the work from Saturday’s workday!

Thanks everyone, happy trails!
