Southside Spanker: 1st Year is a Success!
Approximately 115 riders participated in the 1st annual Southside Spanker, on Saturday October 23. A fundraiser for the Tarheel Trailblazers, the ride originated at 521 District Park (formerly Elon Children’s Home). Riders chose one of three routes: 15, 30 or 60 mile rides through the countryside of Waxhaw and Union County. The scenic ride was well received by all riders, and next years ride promises to be bigger and better.

The funds raised will go toward the purchase of additional trail tools and equipment to build, maintain, and expand the Trailblazers network of trails in the Metro Charlotte area. Mountain bike trails are on the master plan for District Park 521, and with the future trail construction to commence soon in the Mount Holly and Davidson, and Harrisburg areas, the additional funds raised are vital to the success of these future trails.

As always, a special thanks to all the volunteers gave unselfishly to the success of the ride, especially Neal Boyd, who promoted and organized the event, Doug Satterwhite, who laid out the route (s) and to Bruce and Lola’s for supplying a bounty of BBQ for the finishing riders.
