Mark your calendars……….barring catastrophic weather, the official and anxiously-awaited grand opening for Royalview is Sunday, June 17th. Yes, yes……we know it’s Father’s Day….but what better way to celebrate the day than with ol’ dad (or Old Grandad?) on some SWEET new singletrack??!!!? Cleveland Metroparks has some grand plans for the day, with many local shops showing up, food, beverages, group rides, beginner clinics……way big festival atmosphere that our MTB community needs around here! Festivities officially kick off at 11AM, and run until 4PM……so plot your Father’s Day activities carefully.
Metroparks staff does need some volunteer help with setup and breakdown…..if you’d like to help, please send an e-mail to Nancy Desmond; nd ‘at’ clevelandmetroparks.com. In the meantime, adjust your calendar so you don’t miss out, and come help us celebrate 10 new miles of primo NEW singletrack in the Mill Stream Run Reservation! This project is a wonderful celebration of collaborative efforts between Cleveland Metroparks, Student Conservation Association, and CAMBA! BIG HUGE thanks to everyone (especially volunteers) who helped this project meet the June 17th opening date!
If you plan to ride, please be prepared for some parking challenges; best bet is to park along the Parkway (closer to 82 or 130th), and just ride in. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an e-mail (trails ‘at’ camba.us).
