Maribel Caves MTB Trail....NOW OPEN 2015

    Hey Ya'll,
I am proud to say that the Maribel Caves Mountain Bike Trail is now 100% open for 2015. We will no longer need to use the hiking trail in the North West Section. Although the North West Section of trail is open to ride, we do have some areas of trail the we need to cut down to the mineral soil.  So yeah...Maribel is dry and fast. We had a large number of face slappers that we had to get rid of in all of the Pine sections and we will need to go through some areas of trail with a leaf blower. Other than that....it's ready to rip.

Public Message: Just because a trail system is open for the season doesn't mean it is going to be open every day and ready to ride. We close our trails after a heavy rain and storms (to remove any deadfall or branches) sometimes we close the trail on trail work days where we would fix bridges or other features. Please respect all trails that are closed. We have 2 big reasons for closing trails, Protect the environment and for Your SAFETY. Thanks!

PORT 2 POINT 2015

This past PORT 2 POINT Bike Ride and Fundraiser has been our most successful P2P event yet. We had over 60 people for the ride and pizza party and we walked away with of $1000!!!!! A lot of kids and women participated in the O'Beater Meter challenge and we had great prizes thanks to our sponsors from BIKE n FIT, Heavy Pedal and the Fitness Store.
Thanks to all that came out to help raise money for building trails for our area..


TOOL SHED at CAMP VITS

    BRAUN BUILDING is no doubt our largest supporter and sponsor. Paul Braun is a cycling enthusiasts on all levels of the sport. He sees the importance of having local trail systems in our community and he goes above and beyond in doing what he can to help promote trails for Manitowoc Cnty.
BRAUN BUILDING has designed and built a tool shed for the Camp Vits Trail System. This Tool shed will not only store our trail building supplies but will also host a Bike Wash Station and Park info signage. The Bike Wash Station will be used for giving your bike a quick rinse before you ride The Camp Vits Trail. Washing or rinsing your bike before you enjoy the trail at Camp Vits will reduce the risk of spreading invasive plant seeds that may have been on your bike from a previous ride. After placing the tool shed in the park, we will work on installing rain gutters and a rain barrel that will be part of the Bike Wash Station.
THE NEW OM is still in need of financial support to help build, maintain and improve our trail systems in Manitowoc Cnty. We are also in need of volunteers to help us with the progression of building beautiful sustainable environment friendly trails for all users to enjoy. If you can help in anyway, Please contact Wade Marks at wade@ceaserobot.com<mailto:wade@ceaserobot.com> or 920.905.2809

Thanks!.

Get Pumped at Maribel

It took us a little over a year to finally install the pump section at Maribel. We wanted to put a boardwalk over this section of trail the held water in the spring time. Well....we made the boardwalk into a pump section. This Pump Section is easy and safe enough for new riders and it's fun enough for advanced riders to jam through.

Features like this and trail systems in our community just don't happen by themselves. They happen because of the long hours and hard work that THE NEW OM club members and volunteers dedicate to our parks (on and off the trail). Projects like this also happen because of the support from local businesses and fund raisers that The NEW OM puts on. Projects like this will only continue to happen with the help from our local MTBers by helping on "Trail Work Days" and coming to events to help The NEW OM financially.

The NEW OM thanks:
The Sheppman family for designing and instaling this fun new feature, BRAUN Building for all the donated lumber and all the volunteers that helped on this project.
