Camp Vits getting close for 2 Mile Beginner Loop

Oh yeah!!! We are getting closer to finishing the 2 Mile beginner loop for the Camp Vits Mountain Bike Trail. Although we are getting close, We still have alot of work to do before it is open to the public. Please feel free to visit Camp Vits park anytime!! (IMPORTANT NOTE: you cannot park on Middle, Parkview roads or the Cts, you will need to park on Custer or bike from your house). And....if you want, you can bring a rake and remove some leaves off the trail. You may also want to bring a bag with you to remove any garbage that you may find. To this date we have removed over 200 gallons of garbage from the park.

MANTY Parks visited Camp Vits the other day to remove som deadfall.

Deliberately Obstructing Trails


.

.
It makes me sad that I have to write something like this...

WARNING!!!
Deliberately obstructing and purposley placing objects on the trail (such as rocks, branches, etc...) can cause serious harm or death to the cycling user. Altering the trail system in any way is vandalism to the park.

If you are doing this,I am sure that it is NOT your intention to HARM anybody.If you are not hapy about the trail development, there is a more civilized way to protest.

New Om, Mountain Bikers, Hikers, Trail Runners and Supporters of the City of Manitowoc Camp Vits Park,
 If you notice any trail obstruction, Please let me know. -Wade- 920.905.2809.

thanks for your help and support!

Camp Vits Park Kiosk

When we first started talking about the Kiosk for Camp Vits, I expressed importance to Leatherface that this needs to look really good. This is the first thing that the visitors of the park will see. We want this to be a symbol of our club and how we build trail.

Well....Leatherface has exceeded my expectaions. This Kiosk it top notch!!! Thanks and great job to Leatherface and his crew!!!

ART......

Although the Kiosk is up. The trail is NOT open yet for Mountain Biking.

Camp Vits Tee

We are putting in alot of hard work and sweat at Camp Vits Parks. Hopefully the trail system will be open mid Oct. The NEW OM is always looking for ways to raise money for our club. Well....here's another tee to celebrate our hard work on the trail and off. You can pre-order this tee by emailing or calling Wade. We should have this printed in a week or 2. The tee is $20. all the cash will go into the trail devo at Camp Vits.

Trail Building at Camp Vits

Tool Shed- Donated by BROKEN SPOKE BIKE STUDIO

.Chained and locked to a tree. Hopefully we don't have any "RIFFRAFF" breaking in and stealing our tools.

Tools....DUH!!

Brian...sweating

.
Chris....I think he is loving this section of trail.

.

.
When rain falls on hillsides, after the palnts have all gotten a drink, the water continues to flow down the hill as dipersed sheets--called SHEET FLOW. A trail with grade reversals and outsloped tread encourages water to continue sheeting across the trail--NOT down it. Grade reversals require very little maintence.
Here is a picture of a textbook example of proper trail design and construction on a hillside at Camp Vits.

.

CONGRATULATIONS.......It's a Park!!!

Our "Adopt a Park" application has been turned in and approved by the Manitowoc City Park and Rec Dept. What does this mean? The NEW OM is now the official stewards of Camp Vits park. Our hard work, dedication, creditbiliy and professional attitude has paid off to get us where we are today.

CONGRATS and THANKS to our OFF-ROAD Cycling Community.
