In 2010 a group of off road cyclists got together and decided it was time for a cohesive and enjoyable off road trail in the Fargo Moorhead area. Hard work, weed whacking, log removal and lots of bug spray all led to a 2.5 mile singletrack trail at MB Johnson Park in Moorhead MN. Word spread and since it's completion in July of 2010, it has gained much attention from the local biking community as well as regular park visitors. The first ever Red River Bicycle Festival with Cyclocross, Mountain Bike, and Races in addition to Bike Polo and just having fun with bikes was held in September.

The response to this effort was overwhelmingly positive and has spurred numerous conversations to continue efforts to establish and promote the use of off road recrerational trails for biking, hiking, and just getting out doors. Initially it was just an underground movement, but after so many offers to help and eagerness by individuals to expand, it was evident an organization should be formed to unify inviduals and create a cohesive game plan moving forward.

We hope to work closely with the cities of Fargo, Moorhead, and surrounding communities to identify and establish potential locations for off road trails. This is a new so of course there will be lots of learning, but we hope it will continue on to help promote these types of activities for everyone to enjoy!

 As one of the founding members and current president I can't say enough about all of the good things the dedicated group of volunteers does to keep the trails going in the FM Area. Hug thanks to ALL of them and ALL of those who have donated to organization to keep operations and trails going. Zero dollars go to salaries...it's 100% volunteer across the board so donations are used directly for trail development, maintenance, or ancillary costs.

Big thanks to the officials in the cities of Moorhead and Fargo for allowing us to work with them!

Have fun!

 The crew at FM Trailbuilders work throughout the year to give us all in the area somewhere to roll. Thank you for all the work and I hope to join up and be able to help in some way other than just picking up the trail while biking. Appreciate all you do and enjoy all of the trail work! Thank you! Hope the donation helps a little!
