Ride Center at Pocahontas

31 Jul

If you do much mountain biking in this area you’ve probably already heard about developments to make Pocahontas State Park near Richmond into one of only eleven official Ride Centers in the world designated as such by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).  See earlier coverage here.

Well, according to Richmond.com, your input is being requested at a meeting this Thursday, August 1 at 6 p.m. at the park’s Heritage Center.

More specifically, a plan for changes is being developed that will include the following:

  • 32 miles of new mountain bike trails.
  • A day-use trailhead with parking, restrooms, changing rooms and outdoor showers.
  • A connector between existing trails and the proposed trail system.
  • A hand cyclist training center to facilitate access to the trail systems for those who cannot operate traditional bikes.
