Volunteers needed at Woodstock Bike Trail work party

The Woodstock GA chapter of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) is planning a work party Saturday from 9am to 1pm.  According to The Cherokee Tribune, the work party is to clear the proposed trails for machine work at the Taylor Randahl Memorial bike trails at Olde Rope Mill Park.  Taylor Randahl was a local teenager killed in 2000 in a tragic accident while biking.  The 1.3 mile loop is the first part of a 5.8 mile south loop- the US Corps of Engineers is now reviewing plans for an additional three loop- if approved there will be 15-20 miles of additional mountain bike trails in southern Cherokee County.  The trails would also eventually link to the Blankets Creek mountain bike trails in the Sixes area.

In addition to enhancing the quality of life for residents, the bike trails could provide an economic boost to the area.  According to Jay Wilkes, SORBA’a president, about 10,000 bikers use the Blankets Creek trails each year.  The trails are ” minimal investment that draws people all over the southeast to ride it”, he said.

Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques has long been a supporter of the trails and is aware of the positive impact the trails will provide the city.  If you can’t make the work party this weekend, the trail’s dedication is set for May 8, 2010 at 10am.

Greenprints Alliance Woodstock GA Streetfest benefit a Success

Got a chance to drop by the Streetfest benefit for the Greenprints Alliance in downtown Woodstock GA – what a gorgeous day for an outdoor event with music and arts and crafts!  As advertised, East Main Street was closed off to provide space for the street vendors and a stage was set up for ongoing band perfermances.  There was also a rock wall for kids near Canyon Burgers.  The view from the rooftop deck at Pure taqueria was spectacular and the green beer was flowing in a post- St Patty’s Day tribute.

Would love to see this type of event in Woodstock more often- it would seem beneficial for the downtown merchants and also generates and promotes a real sense of community.  And, in this case, helps the area with greater awareness and with the development of Woodstock and Cherokee County’s trail system.  A big thanks goes to the organizers of the Greensprints Alliance Streetfest – great job all the way around!
