On tap, indeed.
My mountain biking colleagues Clay Haglund and Doug Janni and their Mankato Area Mountain Bikers (MAMB) club members are hosting a fundraiser next month at the Mankato Brewery. “There will be music, beer, food, games, merch, and a raffle with great prizes from local businesses” says the flyer which I printed out and put up yesterday in a few key spots around Northfield. See their Facebook events page for more details.
I expect to attend the MAMB fundraiser and not just because I’m the charitable beer-drinking type. I’m interested in learning how mountain bike clubs do their fundraisers, as I’m a new MORC board member and I’m involved with in getting a new club going here in Rice County, Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails (CROCT).
I’m also keenly interested in the mtb trails that MAMB has been constructing along the Minnesota River in downtown Mankato, as it appears CROCT will be doing likewise along the Cannon River bottoms in Northfield.
