We just heard from Addison Oaks that the groomed fat bike route is a go! Working with Oakland County Parks and Recreation, CRAMBA-IMBA suggested a machine-groomable route through the park, and Addison Oaks has put it in place!
Click here to download a map of the route which starts at the main parking lot. Please let us or the park know how you like the route!
See you out there!
The Clinton River Mountain Bike Association’s (CRAMBA) National Mountain Bike Patrol group has had another very successful year in 2014.
The mission of the CRAMBA Bike Patrol is to Assist, Educate and Inform mountain bikers and other trail users in safe, responsible and respectful use of bike trails and parks. This is accomplished through volunteers “patrolling” local trail systems. The CRAMBA Bike Patrol is not an enforcement agency, yet we educate users of proper “rules of the trail”.
Thanks to all who turned up for our January Chapter Meeting. We had 40 people in attendance! It was great to see a full room!
For those that couldn’t make the meeting or just want a refresher, the minutes from our meeting can be found here:

Thanks again for your support! Without you, there’d be no CRAMBA…
Join CRAMBA-IMBA at noon on Saturday, February 7th, 2015 the ¡Ay CRAMBA It’s Cold Out! group ride and party on the snow-covered and winter-friendly trails of River Bends Park.
Just like last year, come on out and join the fun for a few laps. We’ll have a solid, ridable groove groomed that we hope will make the trail accessible to all. Fat bike or regular mountain bike, everyone is welcome!
We’ll have hot bonfires, chili, beverages, and a picnic shelter for our use. Bring snacks, food, or beverages to share. Local bike shops, including KLM Bike & Fitness, Rochester Bike Shop, and Main Street Bikes will be on hand with their fat bike demo fleets. Want to try a new fat bike? Here’s the place!
Head on over to this thread on the MMBA forum to discuss the event, or join the event page here on Facebook.
River Bends is located at Park Rd., Shelby Township, MI 48317, and meet at the Hickory Grove Shelter, located just north of the trailhead kiosk near the main parking lot off of 22 Mile Road.
