Mark your calendars! Saturday October 14, 2017, the 1st Annual J.A. King (and Queen) of the Watershed is here. It’s the first race of its kind in the Triad. Everyone from juniors to experts are welcome at this event.
This race will consist of 5 stages using the following trails: Blue Heron, Reedy Fork, Wild Turkey, Country Park, Owls Roost & Shady Side and Big Loop & Little Loop. The race loops will be timed and the sections leading to each trail will not be timed. Don’t want to race all the segments? No problem. When you’re done then head on back to John’s house for food and fun.
The event will begin at the Blue Heron Trailhead parking lot off Yanceyville Rd. Shuttles will take riders and their bikes to the trailhead from John’s house. There will be prizes for each segment as well as prizes for overall results. There will be a big party afterwards with food, beer and music. This event will be used as a fundraiser for the Piedmont Fat Tire Society. Come on out and have a great time.

We will meet at the Trek Store Greensboro at 9:00am to drive up to the trails and should arrive at Moore’s Springs shortly after 10:00am.
Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, tubes, etc. Helmets are required.

The Piedmont Fat Tire Society is happy to be one of the participants in the di’lishi frozen yogurt bar Community Giveback program that runs through the end of October.
Visit the North Greensboro di’lishi located at 4016-D Battleground Ave. Greensboro, NC 27410 and enjoy a cup of yogurt. With each cup purchased you will receive a small voting spoon which you then deposit in the Greensboro Fat Tire Society box on the giveback wall. The donation size depends on how full the box gets over the voting period so the more yogurt you eat, the more you support the GFTS.

This Saturday, June 17, 2017, is the next Kingfisher Trail workday. Kingfisher ‘Big Dig 2’ will continue the work we did a couple weeks ago. Remember, the more workers we get out the more trail we get cut! The more we get cut, the sooner we’ll using our new trail.
Just like last time, there is no access to the work site from the current Kingfisher trail parking. We will have a shuttle to transport workers to the work site and back to the lot. More info and registration can be found at the link below
Here’s to a BIG turnout this Saturday!

We are planning another Kingfisher workday soon so check this website and our Facebook page so you don’t miss it! You can also sign up for email and we’ll keep you up to date.
National Trails Day is this Saturday June 3, 2017. This year we are celebrating by starting the highly anticipated phase 2 construction of Kingfisher! We are looking forward to a very productive day and hope you will come out and help us create more beautiful trail.
