Better Living Through Trails
The power of mountain biking to improve your community
September 8, 2011
Overview: This presentation explores the positive relationships between communities and their trail systems. Trails as community assets can improve quality of life and livability in a community for both the biking and non-biking members, and can attract significant tourism dollars in addition in increasing overall quality of life. With statistics and case studies, participants will learn how to turn a quality community trail system into a destination trail system, and learn how to effectively market a trail system. This presentation is a great way to show the community that a club is concerned with the health of the local citizens, the health of local green spaces and the health of the local economy.
Key topics: The economic, health and wellness benefits that trails and mountain biking bring to an area; the value of singletrack trails; economics of singletrack trails; building community trails; creating destination trails; case studies.
Target audience: Public board members; elected officials (especially the mayor and city council); tourism bureau; chamber of commerce; media; school districts; health care professionals; local. state and federal land managers; mayoral office; state and federal representatives, local trail user groups, local outdoor recreation groups.

Overview: A key element of building sustainable trails is ensuring that there will be a community committed to the trails’ existence. The Club Care Presentation is designed to teach advocates and volunteers how to effectively organize in order to accomplish club goals. Based on the Crews’ experience teaching hundreds of volunteer groups how build better trails through grassroots organization and advocacy, they will share techniques that advocacy organizations across the country have used to reach goals, overcome challenges, improve land access and grow the mountain bike community. This presentation helps effective clubs learn what they could be doing even better (such as growing leadership base), as well as teaches developing clubs how to structure their organization, motivate existing members and attract new volunteers and members.
Key topics: Building a community around a common goal, goal setting, increasing community participation in your club, cultivating new leadership, communications basics, events planning and marketing, tips and tricks for creating a strong and effective non-profit organization.
Target audience: Active club members, board members, committee members, general members of the public interested in becoming club leaders.
