TarHeel Trailblazers, CABA and Congress

A key component of the CABA presence at the DC Summit in early March p10405141was to support efforts by IMBA (International Mountain Bicycle Association) to substantially increase Congressional funding for natural surface trails under the Recreation Trails Program. A delegation of 13, which besides Charlotte representatives included bike shops, clubs and industry reps throughout North Carolina made the case on Capitol Hill to increase the funding from $370 million to $550 million over the next five years.

These funds, if passed, could help the  Tarheel Trailblazers continue their already successful trail-building activities  in the Charlotte Region.
