MAMB’s Kiwanis MTB Trail: continuous improvements include a difficult ‘Stonehenge’

I attended Mankato Area Mountain Bikers (MAMB)‘s Bike Walk Week grill out /  spring party / fundraising event last Friday.  Their Kiwanis mtb trail has a new trail head with a spiffy kiosk:

They’ve made dozens of enhancements to the trail since I was there a year ago, among them a cluster of large concrete chunks that architect Clay Haglund and fellow volunteers have turned into a spectacular XX technical obstacle known as Stonehenge.  It has many lines through it, none of which I could clean that day.  I blamed the mud but local hotshot Dan Oachs was having far less trouble. I will be back.

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.
