Dear IMBA Friend,
The International Mountain Bicycling Association is coming to Clarks Hill,
SC, and you're invited to join in the special events (schedule below).
Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew leaders Nat and Rachael Lopes, will partner with
the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (http://www.sorba.org) and the US
Forest Service (http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/fms/) for the grand opening of the
Forks Area Trail System (FATS). Volunteers and guests will arrive at the
trail at 9 a.m. for a work party where volunteers will finish the final
portions of the trail. The ceremony will be followed by a bicycle tour of
IMBA has received funding from the National Forest Foundation
(http://www.natlforests.org/) to work in 10 National Forests in 2006 to
promote volunteerism and foster a stronger trails community. Sumter National
Forest has been chosen for this distinction due to the model trail system
the FATS represents. Approximately 100 SORBA members from 8 states are
expected to attend.
The joint effort between Long Cane Trails, LLC, the South Carolina
Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, the USFS and the Southern Off
Road Bicycle Association of the Central Savannah River Area (SORBA-CSRA) has
resulted in the construction of the longest singletrack trail in South
Carolina located in Sumter National Forest.
