Pete’s Pick: Build a Trail and Get Outdoor Goodies


If you are a trail user in the Roanoke Region – if you’re reading this newsletter, there’s a strong chance that you are – then you know how important maintaining and building new paths can be.

Roanoke IMBA is helping to encourage that involvement with the Trail Token Program. If you volunteer time to build trails, you can earn a small wooden token worth $5. Each token can be used like cash at area bike shops. Plus the program recently expanded and Fleet Feet Sports, Walkabout Outfitter, RunAbout Sports, Back Country Ski & Sports, Sweet Donkey Coffee and Roanoke Mountain Adventures will accept the tokens as well.

So make an appointment to volunteer – you can find opportunities from Roanoke IMBA or Pathfinders for Greenways.

Then turn your hard work into more gear to enjoy the trails!
