As of 11am Friday, we have a signed contract (MOU) with the City of Northfield, Minnesota for our trail in Sechler Park. Props to City Engineer Dave Bennett, Streets & Parks Manager Jasper J Kruggel, the Northfield Parks & Rec Advisory Board (PRAB), and the Northfield City Council for their unanimous support. And a tip of the helmet to Matt Andrews at IMBA Midwest for his behind-the-scenes consulting.
Over the river and through the woods! Join Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails (CROCT) staff as they lead you on an offroad adventure on your bicycle. Group rides are offered for boys and girls on Monday evenings throughout the summer and will often be divided by gender. Rides will consist of technical riding and general instruction on the new and exciting trails and obstacles of Sechler Park. Mountain biking may also take place at Caron Park. Attend as many rides as fits into your schedule. Riders should meet on bikes in the cul-de-sac at the entrance to Sechler Park behind Walgreens. Those not yet entering fifth grade may register and participate if accompanied by a parent or if approved by the instructors. Bikes must have two inch tires. Bike rentals are available by contacting Community Services at 507-664-3502.
