Same Trails. Better. 
Trail Improvement Campaign

Since 2019, CORP has had an ambitious goal to have trails professionally rebuilt at several of our trail systems, and our supporters have responded, allowing us to get many of those projects done, like the upcoming new trailhead and pump track at Pleasant View. Our continuing plan is similar, but more focused.

Blue Mound State Park has approval for huge improvements in sustainability and reducing the time the trails are closed, while creating a progressively challenging stacked loop system that offers less experienced riders a place to start and enhance their skills. CORP is actively fundraising to reach the goal of $163,000 to professionally rebuild Gneiss (Phase 1).

87% raised of $163,000 Goal

Thursday, September 29  @  6pm - 9pm09/29/2022 06:00 PM09/29/2022 09:00 PMAmerica/ChicagoCamRock Thursday Night RidesThis ride happens all year. When it gets cold we put on more clothes. When it snows we switch to fatter tires. When it gets dark we turn on our lights. At CamRock the weekend starts on Thursday! If the trails are open we are riding. If they aren't, well stay tuned. We just might post up for a road or doubletrack ride. Maybe a ride to grab some beverages? Come on out for some great riding with some great people. Bring your own or make new friends when you get here. This is what riding is all about! All ages, genders and abilities. All you need is the ability to ride and a positive attitude. Meet up afterward for some socializing and hopefully a bonfire. Meet at the CORP Garage (301 W Water St, Cambridge). Head out on the trails at 6 bells. Ride for an hour or two, depending on how we/you are feeling. The group generally splits into groups depending on abilities and how hard folks want to ride, then meets back at the CORP garage for some BS and beverages. Hope to see you out here! Please Note: These are loosely organized rides intended to build community. Our ride leaders are volunteers; we will try to have a leader for all the rides, weather permitting. Sometimes things just don't work out. Please understand that we may not be able to provide last-minute updates on cancellations or replies to your messages. Keep an eye on the trail conditions and the weather forecast, then use your best judgement to decide if it's a good day to ride, just like always.

10/15/2022 08:45 AM10/16/2022 04:00 PMAmerica/ChicagoMadison | Ninja Mountain Bike ClinicsNinjas are coming to Madison! Ninja Mountain Bike Performance offers half day and full day Clinics and comprehensive 2-Day Camps that pull all of the Ninja curriculum together into one awesome weekend. For those riders who are looking to tackle varied terrain with confidence and skill, the 2-Day Camp is the best place to start. If you are looking for something a little more specific or don’t have a full weekend to commit, check out the “a la carte” clinic options. If you’ve never taken a skills clinic before, regardless of your riding experience, we always recommend taking a Fundamentals clinic (offered as Co-ed Fundamentals and Women’s Only Fundamentals and included in the 2-Day Camp curriculum). Even advanced riders often have bad habits that need to be corrected and a comprehensive review of the foundational riding skills will help to do just that. Start with the fundamentals to break those bad habits (even the ones you might not know you have)! Not sure which clinic is right for you?
