Paul_Arlinghaus:
 Do you want mountain bike trails at Eagle Creek Park?Please join the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association on Wed, June 6 at the Pike Performing Art Center to show your support for mountain bike trails at Eagle Creek Park (see official press release below).
 
 It is important for mountain bikers to have a strong showing at this meeting. Folks will be given a 1-2 minute opportunity to express their support and/or concerns for these trails.  There is opposition to mountain biking trails at Eagle Creek and we need a strong turn out from the cycling community.  Please attend and provide positive comments why you want to see more mountain bike access in Indianapolis.
Stay up to date on this issue on the HMBA forums or the following Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MountainBikeTrailsInEagleCreekParkThis is also a great opportunity to show your support for the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association (hmba.org) and all they have done for outdoor recreation in Indiana. The HMBA builds the best shared-use trails in the Midwest... hands down. We know that lives are busy, but if you love mountain biking and want to see more trails in the Indianapolis metro area, then this is the time to step up and say so. Anyone can be an advocate...
