Northwest NC Mountain Bike Alliance (NWNCMBA) led a sustainable trails workshop on Saturday, October 13 at Riverbend Park.
Attendees included Catawba County Park Rangers, curious citizens, bikers, and a group from Valdese learning about trails for their upcoming park. Many in attendance had prior knowledge of trail construction and maintenance, ranging from vague awareness of principles to hard hands-on experience.
The event had two parts: first a lecture outlining principles of sustainable trail maintenance and then a hands-on outdoor work instruction.
