Beatty Pump Track, Charlotte, NC

The Tarheel Trailblazers, Charlotte, NC, are proud of their newest trail build.  The Beatty Pump Track is 800-1000 ft long, and was built by Elevated Trail Design.  Saturday we had about 40 volunteers help us with the finishing work, and we had about 75 -100 riders help us break it in. This project took a tremendous amount of planning, coordinating, and fundraising;  we couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out.  REI came out and partied with us, and quite a few hot dogs were eaten. A huge thanks to Elevated Trail Design, LLC for building a fantastic pump track.

Funding came from individual donors, a $50,000 RTP grant, REITrips For Kids Charlotte, and Russ Levinton – State Farm Agent.  Tarheel Trailblazer volunteers also contributed about 400-500 volunteer hours, as well as club-owned machinery.

Once again, thanks to everyone that contributed to make the pump track possible.
