Mountain bikers from all over Chicago and local riders flocked to Andres Bike Park this weekend to ride the jump lines and trails. Most people left with big smiles on their faces looking forward to their next visit. Compliments all round. Some loved the single track, others the jumps, yet others the close proximity to Raceway Woods trail system just a few miles away. Even though the new lines that were cut on Thursday and Friday were not fully complete people were riding them and getting in the groove. Andres Bike Park is going to rock. Keep an eye on the calendar at www.cambr.org for workdays. We are all volunteers doing this for charity, come and help us in this one of a kind trail system in Chicago.
CAMBr, Carpentersville, and Andres Bike Park are in the news! The city of Carpentersville could soon be THE hub for cycling in the Northwest suburbs!
A $20,000 grant from REI will help members of the Chicago Area Mountain Bikers volunteer organization further their work at both Raceway Woods and Keith Andres Bike Park in Carpentersville.
Big thanks to all of our volunteers that made it out this weekend to help us prep for the bike jam! Some of you like Plainfield Bike Park and the group from Michigan made a serious trip to help us out! Next weekend is going to be a huge success for the park and for the community and it is because we have such great volunteers!
New feature built today. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out
Join us at the park today in prep for next weekend. We will be working on both the bike park and the singletrack if we have enough folks. Starting 9am and probably running all day.
