Next Wednesday, September 6th, Fort Custer park staff will be adding gravel to the parking lot entrance road and front part of the mountain bike trailhead. They have ordered 50 tons of gravel for this, and staff from the Allegan Field Office will be using some larger equipment to spread and pack the gravel.

Bikers will have to park and access the trails elsewhere on the morning of the 6th while this work is done.

Please pass this along to your riding friends 👍

We aren't endorsing any apps here, but we really dig this message. Nearly anyone can ride a MTB. The first step is starting 👍

Curation, negativity, judgment, egos – that’s not what being an athlete is about. We’re a bunch of weird tan lines, scabby knees and helmet hair, and we like it.
