Mechanicsburg School trail upgrades

MECHANICSBURG SCHOOL TRAIL UPDATE: Kudos to the crew over in Mechanicsburg lead by Physical Educator Jason Minnich for the ongoing maintenance and recent improvements to the trail at Mechanicsburg High School. The crew brought in soil and sculpted some nice corners and rollers to enhance the fun factor. SAMBA is proud to serve the school district in an advisory role throughout the process. The trail is an excellent place to learn basic mountain biking skills and since it’s construction mountain biking has been added to the school’s PE curriculum!!! The trail also serves as the main practice space for the West Shore composite team of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling Association. Check it out when you are in the area or need to teach a friend to... read more
