Rhythm Series Freestyle Dirt Jumps
A Project of Blue Ridge Off-Road Cyclists
Blacksburg VA 24060
The Blue Ridge Off-Road Cyclists plan to add some fun dirt jumps to the Blacksburg Rotary Mountain Biking Skills Park. The project will create some fresh features at the park, attracting new visitors and helping riders improve their skills.
The Rhythm Series Freestyle Dirt Jumps project will add a line of about 220 feet with twelve jump features ranging from step ups to table tops to transfers. The Blacksburg Rotary Mountain Biking Skills Park does not currently house these kinds of jumps, and the project will provide skill development opportunities to help riders advance to higher level trails in the National Forest trail system.
This park is used by families, beginning riders, the middle- and high-school mountain biking teams, and visitors to our area. The park also links to our area greenway (Huckleberry Trail) that connects Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Montgomery County and the Virginia Tech campus, providing easy access for nearby communities.
March 2021 – Thank you for everyone’s support in contributing to the IMBA Dig In grant for the funding of the NEW rock garden trail at the Blacksburg Rotary Mountain Biking Skills park.
BROC (Blue Ridge off-road Cycling group) www.blueridgeoffroadcyclists.org submitted a grant proposal on Blacksburg’s account. We not only were granted a spot in the contest but received even more funds then we were asking for. We couldn’t have done it without BROC’s help!
The funds totaled $2800 towards the project. Additional funds were donated by a private donor who the trail will be named after and a fundraising race event that we held.
We are sourcing rock, working with our contractor Eastern Trail company and looking for warmer drier weather. Stay tuned for more updates.
IMBA Grant by way of Blue Ridge Off-Road Cyclists
Blacksburg was just awarded a matching $2000 grant from IMBA by way of Blue Ridge Off-Road Cyclists. So we need to raise $1000 for the match. This project is to build a rock garden approximately 200 ft long that comes down from the top of the park and connects to the Terrain Park. This trail would create a unique rock feature with different lines of difficulty. Every dollar counts!
Also we will be conducting additional fundraising activities this fall to help support this project and several other projects for the park.
