2018 Lake Norman Bike-a-thon Fundraiser

Presented by: The Cedar Stump Pub

To benefit the trails of Lake Norman State Park and the Tarheel Trailblazers

“Join members of the regional mountain bike community for a day of fun on two wheels as we celebrate the trails of Lake Norman State Park, and raise money for trail maintenance to enhance the riding experience for years to come. “

The Itusi trail system at Lake Norman State Park was the first mountain biking trail system constructed in the North Carolina State Parks system. After breaking ground on Hawk loop in 2003, the Itusi trail system has grown into 30 miles of sublime single track that provides riding opportunities for all levels of mountain biking enthusiasts. 15 years and thousands of riders later, the original 6 miles of trail at LKN State Park needs some serious trail work to ensure that riders, both beginners and experienced gearheads alike, can enjoy these trails for decades to come.

This event aims to raise the necessary funds to complete substantial trail rehabilitation and strategic re-routes on the Hawk, Hicks Creek, and Norwood Loops, to ensure these trails provide thousands more riders with smiles ear to ear.

Fund Raising Goal and Intention

Fundraising goal: $10,000

Funds raised through this event will serve as matching funds for a 2018 REI grant that the Trailblazers are applying for to benefit the trails at Lake Norman State Park.

The first phase of the LKN State Park trail improvements project is to complete an assessment of the ~6 miles of trail to be improved that will identify all projects to be implemented. That assessment will determine cost estimates for project implementation. If the cost to implement all projects at LKN State Park is less than the total funds raised, then the remaining funds will be used to support other trail development projects within THTB trail systems.
