Last year we introduced TMBR to the public at the Triple D event. At that time I told the audience that our singular focus was to install new singletrack trail in the tri-state area. In the last year our membership grew over 100 members, we received IMBA chapter status and we raised $50k for a public trail system in Asbury.
We have not changed this focus. Everything we do is assessed based on whether it supports construction of new trails. We have declined other opportunities because it does not support our primary mission.
This year Triple D is our event. TMBR is fortunate that Lance Andre was willing to hand over the organization and stewardship of this event so that it could be a fundraiser for trails. All profits will go toward our 2017 initiatives.
So I hope everyone can join us this weekend for the event. If distance is not your thing, join me for the 5k run. Your participation will go directly toward local trail funding.
Now is an exciting time for trail advocates in the Dubuque area. Let’s keep the momentum going. I’ll see you at Triple D.
