Donate to support trails
My first race back after my broken leg is going to be the Hoo-Ha at Massanutten on June 6 and 7. This race has been going a long, long time and is an awesome course. But the main reason that I'm doing it is to be part of a team that helps raise money for the trails. I've had so many great rides and races on trails built and maintained by clubs like SVBC. Now its time to give back.
If you can please donate to me or to the SVBC/IMBA team. Any amount helps with building and maintaining trails, advocacy, and opportunities for cycling. The link is http://go.imba.com/site/TR/Volunteerfundraiser/TeamIMBA?fr_id=1200&pg=entry
2009 Massanutten Team IMBA Hoo-Ha! Details
Come join Massanutten Four Season Resort and the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition as they host a weekend of fun mountain bike racing and celebrating. The 2009 Massanutten Hoo-Ha will also be a great opportunity for you to jump on board with your favorite IMBA Team and help raise money for IMBA and your local IMBA affiliated club. Just think…if you raise or help someone raise over $500 your IMBA affiliated club will get back $750 thanks to the great support of SRAM (check out the details: http://go.imba.com/site/PageServer?pagename=TeamIMBASRAMGrant) There will be many perks to being on TEAM IMBA making it well worth your fund raising efforts, just check out some of the prizes(link: http://go.imba.com/site/PageServer?pagename=TeamIMBAPrizes) and benefits below.
Want to be part of the action but don’t want to race or be on TEAM IMBA? No worries help raise money or donate to one of your TEAM IMBA riders, helping them and your local club reach their fund raising goal. The Massanutten Hoo-Ha event is fun weekend regardless of your racing desires, come out Saturday and ride the course or watch and help with the SVBC Super D event. Sunday is another great opportunity to watch and volunteer, or maybe bring your kids and have them participate in the free kids race.
While at Massanutten check out some of the new trails that have been built in the past four years. The newest trails at Massanutten represent a great partnership between a local club (SVBC) and a private land owner (Massanutten Four Season Resort). What was once an area that was closed to local cyclist is now open to SVBC members and those participating in the Massanutten Western Slope Trail Partnership (link: http://www.svbcoalition.org/massanutten.php) .
