IMBA Trail Care Crew Visit

by vietvandong on July 26, 2015



We had a great visit from Jordan and Lani, the IMBA Trail Care Crew.


We couldn’t have done it with a lot of local support.  We’d especially like to thank the Barron County Economic Development Corp and Out There for their support to bring singletrack trails to Barron County.


Badger Brew in Rice Lake hosted the IMBA TCC meet and greet last night and offered a marvelous spread of food.







Land managers and tourism folks learned about the impact of trails for communities as part of the IMBA Trail Care weekend!





Look at all these Volunteers!




First section of trail!


The conclusion to a great visit from Jordan and Lani was to check out the super sweet singletrack. at Hickory Ridge Trails.   There were deer flies chasing them this morning.
