Same Trails. Better. 
Trail Improvement Campaign

In 2019, CORP had an ambitious goal to have trails professionally rebuilt at several of our trail systems, and our supporters responded in a grand way, allowing us to get all of those projects done, and we’ve got some amazing trail to enjoy this summer as a result.

This year, the plan is similar, but more focused. When the new access road and trailhead are built at Pleasant View, we'll be rebuilding the pump track we lost, and we're hoping to raise enough money to upgrade to an all-weather surface. The ask is, again, $80,000. We know we can do it, since we did it last year, but we need your help!

Please help with your valuable contribution. How about $100? How about asking your employer to match it? Contribute what you can, or become a CORP Member. Do it now.

10/10/2020 08:45 AM10/11/2020 04:15 PMAmerica/ChicagoMadison | 2-Day CampNinjas are coming to Madison! Our 2-day Camp gives you a chance to build up and clean up your ‘toolbox’ of mountain bike skills. This comprehensive program puts the entire Ninja curriculum together into one epic weekend. The camp kicks off with an overview of the foundational riding skills and builds up to more advanced material over the course of the weekend including jumping, high speed cornering, technical climbing/descending, drops and more. The weekend is taught in a progressive format meaning each skill builds on another, giving you an opportunity to progress at your own pace. You’ll leave the 2-Day Camp with the confidence to tackle rougher terrain, corner with greater speed and control, and negotiate trail obstacles and drops with commitment. We’ll give you the tools to find your flow on singletrack, switchbacks, and berms; all with less pedaling, more efficiency and better use of the trail’s natural features. *Please note, this curriculum is specifically designed for adult learners. We recommend riders age 15-17 attend with a parent or adult (minimum age 15). A minimum of two years riding experience is recommended to join us for this multi-day event.

Saturday, October 10  @  1:45pm - 4:15pm10/10/2020 01:45 PM10/10/2020 04:15 PMAmerica/ChicagoMadison | Jumping Mini-ClinicNinjas are coming to Madison! Are you ready to take your mountain biking to the next level, literally? Jumping your mountain bike is NOT as simple as Ready. Set. JUMP! Learning how to safely and successfully jump (and land) your mountain bike involves a range of key components and constantly changing variables. We’ll take you through a series of progressions that will help you understand all the components that come together to create a successful jump. We’ll start with basic wheel lifts, bunny hops, and manuals and work our way up to weighting and un-weighting over a jump. From there, we’ll have an opportunity to practice on small jumps, ride multiple jumps in succession, learn the correct way to land and more! All training is done in a controlled environment, either on an appropriate feature (table top) on the local trails or using manufactured ramps in a grassy area. By the end of the clinic, our goal is to have you successfully clearing a 4-5 foot gap jump (approximately 2 feet in the air) and landing safely and predictably. *Please note, we require 2 years riding experience or previous attendance at a Ninja Fundamentals Clinic, Intermediate/Advanced Clinic, Camp or Adventure to attend a Jumping Mini-Clinic. This curriculum is specifically designed for adult learners. We recommend riders under age 15 attend with a parent or adult (minimum age 11).
