The wall ride shown above is one of the many features you could ride if you attended the 2013 Southern Mountain Bike Summit in Woodstock, GA! It’s the big finish on the Quehl Holler trail in Woodstock, GA. Berms, drops, jumps, berms, drops, & tabletops. But don’t let the advanced features scare the beginner or intermediate riders away. They have a total of seven trails totaling almost 15 miles of trails varying from beginner to the expert Quehl Holler.
Our very own Mack Story, CAMP President and President of Kaizen-Ops, will be speaking on Leadership Saturday Morning at the Summit. From Mack, “I will be able to blend the leadership principles with stories that are relevant to leading a successful, all volunteer mountain bike organization and discuss how we have been able to achieve dramatic results in such a short period of time.”
On Friday, the focus will be on educating those who manage our public lands about how to effectively create, expand, and manage mountain bicycling opportunities in their parks and forests. A guided ride of the Taylor Randahl Memorial Trails at Rope Mill Park will be held that afternoon, followed by dinner in downtown Woodstock. Saturday’s program will include workshops and panels geared towards effective advocacy, volunteerism, and trail building. A guided ride at Blankets Creek Trails follows the day’s sessions. The Summit coincides with Greenprints Alliance’s 4th Annual Trailfest, and attendees are invited to enjoy live music, dinner, and family-friendly activities in downtown Woodstock on Saturday evening. On Sunday, the fun moves to the North Georgia Mountains, with a ride in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, beginning at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way. Anyone with an interest in outdoor trail-based recreation is invited to attend the Summit.
Woodstock’s City Center, including the Elm Street Theater, will house Summit meetings, and the Taylor Randahl Memorial Trails at Rope Mill Park and the Blankets Creek Trails at Lake Allatoona will be the trails of choice for riding on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the fun moves to the North Georgia Mountains, with a ride in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, beginning at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way.
