IMBA CLIF Bar Trail Preservation Grant Goes To Woolly Mountain Bike Club

Jeff Evans, Mike Lundeen, and Keith Valeski on a rainy trail work day - Woolly Trails in St. Croix Falls, WI.

Word first broke back on May 6 on the Woolly Mountain Bike Club Facebook Page (yes, you should go there and click "like") that they had won the CLIF Bar Trail Preservation Grant through IMBA.  Today it became official news on the IMBA website, along with 9 other worthy IMBA clubs from across the country.

The Woolly Mountain Bike Club truly embodies the spirit and values of IMBA, as can be seen in our recent interview with Keith Velaski.  Specifically, this IMBA grant was awarded to the Woolly Club because it "promote(s) environmental education and inspire conservation in the mountain biking community".  Congratulations to the Woolly Club on this well deserved honor!

CLIF Bar awarded 10 IMBA clubs these grants, with the Woolly Club being the only Midwest based club on the list.  The other grants primarily went to clubs on the east coast, west coast, and inter-mountain west regions.  

According to the IMBA press release, this $500 grant will be used to "install trail signs and a trailhead kiosk".  The combination of a trailhead kiosk and trail signs will help a whole lot more people discover the world class mountain bike trails in St. Croix Falls and allow for "unguided exploring of the trails". 

Stay tuned for a Cyclova XC group ride on these great trails as well as future official Woolly Club trail work days!
