Sorry to keep you waiting, dudes and ladies and Robert. 
Here is the big stonking announcement: Tarheel Trailblazers has been awarded a $100,000 Recreational Trails Program grant to build the intermediate and expert flow loops for the Colonel J. Francis Beatty park Pump and Flow Trail. 

This will complete the small bike park area and add beginner, intermediate, and expert jumps, and tons of flow.

The first loop, an 800 ft pump track, was completed in 2018 in partnership with Elevated Trail Design, LLC, and was made possible with a Recreational Trails Program grant, individual contributions, and donations from Charlotte Re-Cyclery supporting Trips For Kids Charlotte, Russ Levinton - State Farm Insurance Agent, and REI.

Stay tuned for more news and how to get involved!

No idea on timeline. We'll need to do a little fundraising (it's a reimbursement grant, with 25% match) and then work with P&R and builder schedules. I'd like to get it done by the end of the year.
