As the United Riders of Cumberland roll into their tenth year of existence, they have grown in their function from a riding and racing club to a trail management organization. Recently renewing the 2 year initial land access agreement with the local private forest landowners, it shows their hard work has been viewed positively by the powers that be. To help in this ongoing project, there are a few great ways you can support the United Riders of Cumberland and the associated trails.
- Become a member – plain and simple, if you ride the Cumberland trails you should become a member – Memberships can be bought online here
- Help out at a trail day – gain some trail karma, schedule will be posted in the spring – http://unitedridersofcumberland.com/trail-maintenance/
- Participate in a hosted event – race fees generate a significant income for the club – http://unitedridersofcumberland.com/events/
- Become a sponsor – do you own a business? Here’s a great way to contribute to UROC – http://unitedridersofcumberland.com/about/sponsorship/
