Service Project

Carving New Trails & Giving Back to The CommunityVolunteer-trailbuilders_SMALL

Join us on Wednesday, October 19th, from 1-5 p.m. for the 1st annual Fall CycloFest Service Project, presented by Interbike, PeopleForBikes and Recover Brands. With the local Tarheel Trailblazers group leading the way, volunteers will spend a few hours getting dirty at the U.S. National Whitewater Center, home to more than 30-miles of mountain bike trails used by the local community at no charge every day.

What Can You Expect?

Every trail work group is different – some will trim back brush to make sure trails don’t get over grown, some will move rocks and dirt to build a new trail. Some will cut downed trees, or all of the above. Everyone will be given tools to use, and the end result will be a new trail for all to ride – all while giving back to the local community.

The first 100 participants will be given t-shirts from Recover Brands, and at the end of the day we’ll all enjoy a beverage at the Pump House Biergarten overlooking the whitewater channels on-site.
