Thirty in Three. Simply put: Thirty miles of professionally designed and built singletrack within the next three years. The entire project will require absolutely no tax increases for area residents. Instead, TrailSpring will gain funding for 30 in 3 through personal and corporate donations and grants. Volunteer efforts from members of the trail community will build the human-powered trails.
Among our progress to date, TrailSpring has secured the services and creative vision of Progressive Trail Design, the renowned trail designers behind many of the most innovative bike parks in the nation. We’ve also partnered with Midwest Off-Road Cyclists (MORC) for a trail tool collection effort that has resulted in hand tools for 20 volunteers. The tools include protective gear, a chainsaw, a pole saw, a blower pack, and trimmers. TrailSpring has also landed more than $4,500 to begin work on the SAC River Pavilion.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) Feasibility Study TrailSpring funded and oversaw resulted in clear-cut evidence that constructing our system of singletrack trails is not only feasible; it will prove vital to the local economy. Finally, TrailSpring is thrilled that Two Rivers Bike Park is currently open to all bicyclists, hikers, and runners. Featuring 8.5 miles of singletrack, Two Rivers is already drawing visitors—and the money they spend—to the Springfield area regularly.
