The 2017 IMBA Dig In Campaign is putting dollars directly toward 68 active, approved mountain bike projects in 31 states. Collectively, these IMBA chapter projects represent 500 miles of new trails, the maintenance/improvement of another 140 miles of trails, and 10 new bike parks/pumptracks. From massive, multi-use singletrack systems of 20 miles or more to an area’s first-ever bike-only DH trail to high school mountain bike racing courses, these 68 projects will improve communities, change lives and make mountain biking even more awesome.
Support more and better mountain biking! Now through December 31, 2017, make a tax-deductible donation to the project near you; donate to all of the projects at once; or shop with one of our partners that is kicking back a portion of profits to these hard-working chapters. Each project will get an equal cut of corporate funds IMBA raises for Dig In and the rest is up to you. Thanks!
Colorow Flow is the working title for a pair of feature-filled, descent-optimized bike trails that will complement a new climbing trail, Stairway to Heaven, built in 2017. With the easy green climbing trail now in place, Colorow Flow will provide a fun beginner descent and an intermediate descent with optional difficult features.
Chief Colorow of the Ute Indians is the namesake for a steep local trail favored by hikers and expert riders. Colorow Flow will broaden the appeal of this growing trail system for younger and newer riders, while offering a unique experience for New Castle residents and visitors.
While most of RFMBA’s & New Castle Trails’ projects have utilized volunteers and hand tools, this project is expected to employ experienced trail contractors for major portions, and will be a focus project for 2018.
