12th Annual No Horses Shootout 2019
Several times a year, HIMBA, working closely with the HIRRA Parks Steering Committee, plan Trail Work Days. We invite all our members and anyone who loves our trails to come out and lend a hand. Its a fun, satisfying day to have remade a section of trail better than before. Keep your eyes on this page and your email inbox for upcoming opportunities.
The HIMBA Sponsored South Spasm Chasm Trail Replacement Project is almost complete. Big thanks to Arlo, Brett, Dean, Dexter, Dierdre, Eben, Jason, Kasmer, Marc W., Mike, Nick, Odus, Peter, Tig, and Tom for the hard work and enthusiasm at the outings on Nov.11 & Dec 16. GREAT work!
Annual No Horses Shootout
Every year they gather, bringing their bikes, their dreams, their need for a little fun in the forest.
It all started one extremely rainy spring day when the owners of the local bike shop were looking for a fun thing to do. “Let’s race, rain or shine, on our fastest section of trail,” they said. With a reluctant girlfriend manning the stopwatch under an umbrella, Jer, Irah, and Florian laid the first tracks in what was to become an annual rip through the woods.
