Downtown Downhill

ambc-downtown-downhill-share-graphicOur friends at Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC) are asking for your help. Bell Helmets is awarding $100,000 to fund a trailbuilding project, and AMBC is a semifinalist!

About the Project: Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness has over 40 miles of trails for biking and hiking. The proposed “Gravity Trail” – which will include rock gardens, drops, and constructed features –will put us on the map as one of the premiere outdoor recreation destinations. It will add a cool new feature to our trails, attract new riders and businesses, and increase the desirability of our community.

Vote for AMBC and Tennessee at downtowndownhill.com until May 24.
