Rumble at the Ridge Race Proposal:
The Board of the York County Parks has officially notified YAMBA that they have rejected the Rumble at the Ridge Race Proposal that we submitted to them earlier this year. The board took an honest look at our proposal. While they applaud us for what we have done for the parks over the years, they had some serious safety and environmental concerns about having a race at Rocky Ridge. We are certainly disappointed with their decision but at this time, YAMBA plans to move forward with other projects and events during 2010. We are not abandoning our quest to hold a mountain bike event in the York County Parks. We will take a look at their concerns and see if there are any alternatives that would be more agreeable to the parks at some point in the future.

We plan to continue with our partnership with the York County Parks to make improvements to the trail system and ensure open access to all user groups. Look for upcoming events like group trips to other mountain biking destinations, trailwork sessions to construct Rusty Chair at Rocky Ridge, likely a Jon Gantz Poker Ride/Picnic, and the YAMBA 10th Anniversary Celebration later this year.

If anyone has any comments or questions, please feel free to post here.
