Rattling Creek Fundraiser-Your help needed!

SAMBA recently announced plans for a large expansion of the awesome IMBA EPIC Rattling Creek Trail System (RCTS) near Lykens, Pa. and we need your help! The vision for the expansion will more than double current trail mileage, establish trail connections for future trail development within the Greenland Tract of Weiser State Forest, provide trail access from Lykens and Williamstown and connectivity to the Lykens Valley Rail Trail. SAMBA is looking forward to resuming volunteer work days soon and we are currently seeking funds to purchase building materials for the construction of new bridges, a kiosk and signage. Your tax deductable donation is greatly appreciated and  Thank You in advance for your help to open new trails this year! To donate (All donations go to Rattling Creek expansion):http://sambabiker.com/samba/donate/ Questions: http://sambabiker.com/samba/contact/ More info: http://sambabiker.com/samba/samba-announces-rattling-creek-trail-system-expansion/ Cheers!...

COVID-19 UPDATE from IMBA/SAMBA

  To our friends and partners in mountain biking, Getting out on the trails is tremendously valuable. Trails bring us together, but to keep each other safe, we must keep our distance. How can our community navigate this challenge? First and foremost, refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for best practices, as well as guidelines from your state and local governments. Then, as appropriate, cautiously take advantage of trails and outdoor spaces unless you are feeling ill. We will all benefit from fresh air. Should mountain bikers host group rides or trail work days? Cancel, postpone or reschedule upcoming events including races, trail work, and group rides until there are new government directives. For now, let’s ride in very small groups, keep our distance, and enjoy our trails close to home to minimize the risks associated with car travel. How can trail users pass responsibly with social distance? Stay alert, slow down, and communicate with each other from a distance about how to proceed. With gyms and rec centers closing, there may be new users on the trails. It’s a great time for community education on responsible riding and for being patient, exemplary stewards. Thanks for reading. Stay safe! SAMBA...
