New Trail In the Works...
We are hashing out the final details of having a true professionally built trail at the Marquette Mountain Bike Park. World Famous Trail Builder Ted Tempany and Quick Stop Bike Shop are working on the final details of a project to bring Flowing Whistler style trails to the Great Lakes Region. The plan is for a trail with flowing berms and rollable features, tabletops, step ups, ect. Ted is responsible for building famous trails all over the world, riding features for bike films like the NWD series and competition venues such as Crankworx, Bike Magazine Monster Park, and Red Bull Rampage the Evolution. He was also featured as a builder in the latest Collective film "SEASONS"
To help pay for the construction, Quick Stop Bike Shop is Raffling off a Gary Fisher Wingra city bike. Perfect for commuting and ripping around town. $5 gets you a ticket and the proceeds go to building something great to ride. You might win a bike and your support will help bring a great riding experience to the region. Ticket is drawn July 10 and winner will be notified by e-mail.
