A Note of Encouragement From Our Friends at SORBA
I am the chapter president for the Athens chapter of SORBA, the Southern
Off-Road Bicycling Assn. My parents live in Charlotte, so I visit there
about five times a year, and each time I visit I ride at Catawba Riverfront
Park.

I also raced there last weekend at the Riverfront Classic.

I just wanted to send a note to congratulate you on what I think is an
excellent job of maintaining the Riverfront trail. Having ridden there
somewhat regularly for almost five years, I am consistently impressed with
the condition of the trail, and it seems that each time I ride there, a new
re-route of other improvement appears. I've even taken notes and applied
them to my own home trails here in Athens, GA.

I know that you guys are holding your breath due to the whitewater
construction, but I just wanted to say that with the same drive,
determination and skill that you've already used to make Catawba Riverfront
great, you'll be able to adapt the trail despite the loss of some mileage.
You have a beautiful piece of land to work with, and I hope you'll continue
to rock it out.

good luck!
