This trail marker has little sticker on it say'n that the CORTTE family made a generous trail donation. For 50 bucks you can get a small sticker with your name on it that will be placed on a trail marker.


I went out to trail build this past Monday with my family. They all helped out alot. thanks kidz! and my wife...not in the pic, cause she wouldn't like it if I posted a pic of her all sweaty and dirty....gotta keep the wife happy.

We found this full grown spotted back salamander.

Cedric spent 2 hrs clearing leaves off of existing trail. This is the longest time he ever spent away from an electronic device with out say'n that he's bored.

Here is a new section of trail that we hope to have open by this Saturday. oh yeah.. this looks like alot of fun.

Future trail. We need your help trial building. hope to see you this weekend!



 We all have those days where we just let the day waste away, not careing about what happens next. You know those days.... Maybe it's from too much of a good time from the nite before or you're just in a mood to let the day burn away (sometimes we have too many of these days). But.... we also have the days where we try to get as much out of life as we can. You know those days too...Maybe it's one of those days that all you want to do is spend time with your family & loved ones and let them know how important they are to you (not on a holiday) or it's a day that you make an extra effort to contact some old friends to hang out. Or you spend some days pushing your body to the limit to get stronger, faster or maybe just for bragging rights (Mountain bikers know what i'm talking about).  

Rob didn't let his time here burn away.
Our Bragging Right is that we knew&Loved Rob.


You'll be missed!

"THIS IS WHY" Mountain Bike Film

For those of you that don't know "THIS IS WHY" is a  film that features Mountain Bike Trails in Northeast Wisconsin and showcases the Mountain Bikers that build and maintain those trails.

Making this film is alot of work but just as much fun. We plan to show the trails from NorthEast Wisconsin. Please keep an eye out for the dates that we will be filming in your neck of the woods.

 Here is the trailer to our film. ENJOY!!

Soundtrack to the trailer is by LES SAVY FAV. I assure you that the film will be just as rock'n as the trailer.


Everyone Can Play a Role in a Mountain Biking Club


You don't need to Build Trail to help out your local MTB club. There are different ways to help out. You can spend time looking into different grants that your club can fill out, Plan and organize a a fund raiser, cook or bake food on trail building days for the people that are cutting trail. The list is huge for what you can do for your club.

Here are 2 examples:

We broke our wagon last weekend. Randy Johnson took the time to weild it back together.


Here is a pic of Paul Braun enjoy'n a cold one after a ride in front of the tool shed that he donated to our club. And he donated all the lumber for our kick ace berm too.
 Hey Paul...nice jersey man!!!

Thanks guys!! 
 And thanks to everybody that helps out in any role that you play for our club.



This weekend we did a fundraiser for our club by getting sponsors for each rider to payout for each lap the rider finished. As of right now we raised about $300 bones and still waiting for more cash to come in. Thanks to everyone that came out and a huge thanks to Dan from Kewaunee for supporting our club and the cause.

Steve and Richmond

Graden on the wood berm, look feet.

Joel took a digger, he's okay just a lil dirt and blood.

Dan com'n up to the berm. watch out for the Sasquatch!!


This past weeked we tried our best to devo alot of trail at Maribel Caves. We had some new volunteers come out to join in on the fun (Chris from Hortonville and Ben from Copperstown) thanks guys!

Richmond and Josh. planning for the attack.


We had standing water on part of our new section of trail. We wanted to armor this section ASAP before it got to messed up.
Richmond and Ben haul'n rock to the mucky trail section.


Here's the mucky area. The plan: fix it before it get's too fudged up.

Here's Richmond and Ben try'n to fix the mucky spot. The rocks are protecting the trail from getting torn up, but it is killing the flow of the trail and not working the best. Hopefully in the near future we can build a slight bermed bridge to go over this wet spot of trail.

We had this one problem but at the end of the day, the trail work day was awesome!! thanks to all that came out to help!


We now have trail markers on our trail at Maribel. Here is a pic of our trail head marker. Note the major NEW OM sponsor sticker. thanks guys!

Other markers have caution stickers before our features and bridge. take a ride and check them out.

Trail Design Specialists

  Trail Building Education is something that The NEW OM feels very strongly about. It Gives your club members a feel of ownership to the trails that they help build and maintain. And gives your club more creditability in the eyes of land owners and managers. Thanks to Bridgit Brown and the Wisconsin DNR, The NEW OM was able to get two more club members certified as TRAIL DESIGN SPECIALISTS. This class was taught by Mike Ritter ( he pretty mouch wrote the trail building books that IMBA sells).  In this class you get 1 full day of trail design, 1 full day of trail Building and 1 full day of trail maintenance and crew leading. this is 1/2 day education in the class room with a test before lunch and the 2nd half of the day is spent on the trail,The 4th day is spent in the field putting your skills to the test.

Congrats and thanks to Chris and Joel for getting certified!!!





The LUNG and LEATHER FACE spent 3 nites building the berm at MC. This thing is solid and rides smooth.

Thanks again guys for all the volunteer time that you dedicated to building this awesome berm!!

The LUNG: taking the lower half of the berm. This will give you more speed and will whip you around the corner faster.

 I just got a Nikon D5100. had to take a nature pic. This guy was hanging out by the berm wishing he could ride it.

Darrell: coming in HOT....yeah it's that fast.

And... after seeing the awesome constructiong of this berm, Travis was asked by Ric Damm (Ripon College Cycling Race Coach) to come out to Ripon and help them make a wood berm on there trail.
