The trailhead at Middleton Bike Park has moved from the SE corner of the parking lot to the SW corner, next to the pumptrack. In addition to consolidating things by the pumptrack, we were able to get rid of a sizable chunk of two-way trail; now nothing east of the pump track is two-way. A permanent kiosk, permanent signage, and updated maps are in the works, but the trails are good to go. Big thanks to all the volunteers who came out for two trail building days, and Central Cross Country Skiing for loaning a mini-excavator. Note that the trail east of the new trailhead is now known as 'Clubhouse,' and will be designated intermediate. We plan on tuning up the old trail, which is now a westbound downhill, in 2024.
In 2023, five outstanding interns from local NICA teams joined forces with CORP to organize and run our Movie Night Event in September.
The interns learned about planning, communication, marketing, working with local municipalities as well as understanding how a non-profit works. Volunteer hours and experience can be used towards NHS, NICA Teen Trail Corp, College Applications as well as for just feeling good about helping to build more needed trails in our area.
We are now accepting applications for our expanded 2024 intern program. High School Juniors and Seniors (as of Fall '24) are encouraged to apply using this Application Form. If you have questions, email email@example.com for more information.

The pump track at Middleton Bike Park is open (again)! CORP worked hard to assure the folks at Middleton Parks that we could use the track and stay off the freshly seeded areas, and it's very important that everyone complies with this. Look for a grand opening in the spring, until then, enjoy, and stay off the grass!
