KyMBA Louisville Envisions 100 Miles of Human-Powered Trails

What’s a “human powered trail?” Sounds weird, but fairly intuitive: anything that you, as a person, power, instead of a motor. This means mountain biking, jogging, walking, perhaps even pogo-sticking if you could manage it. Billy Davis of KyMBA Louisville outlines the plan for what would be the east’s first 100-mile single track trail in this short presentation:

 

As someone who has walked, ridden, and jogged through the various of trails of Cherokee Park, I can say for a fact that KyMBA knows how to maintain a trail quite well. And since the volunteers are typically fellow mountain bike riders, they make some pretty sick passages for the knobby tire crowd as well.
