The American Eagle Foundation, one of SCA’s national sponsors initiated a country-wide campaign to “Reclaim the Outdoors”. On October 3rd, 30 volunteers from the Michigan Mountain Biking Association, the Hub of Detroit and SCA Detroit engaged in a day of trail work and riding at the only mountain bike trail in Detroit, a two mile loop along the Rouge River in Northwest Detroit.
The projects included:
Securing an existing bridge platform
Building 2 retaining walls to prevent washout and to widen trail
Reworking tread and create drainage solutions
Defining trail borders and relocate native plantings to block off social trails
Removing felled trees and general clean-up
Thank you to all those that participated and helped make the event a huge success! SCA Detroit would also like to thank The American Eagle Foundation, The MMBA and the Hub for their generous support!
