the MTB experience coming to Vinton

It’s a cool scenario:  folks from Vinton visit Cedar Rapids, ride Beverly Park singletrack, and ask the question “Why not in our hometown?”

To make a long story short – Vinton Parks & Rec. contacts LAMBA, your local IMBA chapter assists them with a plan, IMBA grants a trail care crew visit, and wallah… backyard trails in Vinton, Iowa.

Ha, there’s a lot more to it than that! Our emerging mtb friends a bit to the north have some awesome ideas, a solid plan, a lot of work to do for it all to come to fruition, and are well on their way; stay tuned / plug in…

p.s. LAMBA’s ability to bring mtb experiences to our area is a direct result of the work of IMBA, and has continued to evolve due to our partnership with IMBA; bottom line – please support these awesome nonprofits by joining your local chapter!

Thanks for reading, see you on the trails
