The 2007 Bikes Belong Coalition grants have been announced and the Austin Ridge Riders will receive $4,400 to to build a critical stretch of singletrack in their Slaughter Creek Trail network. Bikes Belong funding will help accelerate the trailbuilding process and meet Recreational Trails Program deadlines by helping the committed grassroots group pay for a 2-mile section of machine-built trail.
The Slaughter Creek Trail system sits on Austin’s Water Quality Protection Lands. Mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels enjoy these trails, and the Austin Ridge Riders, Texas’ largest mountain bike club, utilize the area for their excellent programs.
Bikes Belong is the national coalition of bicycle suppliers and retailers working to put more people on bicycles more often. Through national leadership, grassroots grants, and promotion, we strive to make bicycling in the U.S. safe, convenient, and fun.
