Support Blackhawk's Mountain Bike Trail Fund

Blackhawk's Skills Park - Helping improve the skiils riders of all abilities.

Blackhawk's trail system has seen tremendous growth and improvement during the past 5 years.

We have:

  • Given lessons to almost 500 kids from 2013-2019
  • Started a NICA race team with over 30 team members
  • Provided lessons for adults in partnership with Ninja Bike Camps
  • Seen a tremendous increase in the number of families who come to spend time outdoors together (safely distanced), learning life-long biking skills. 
  • Contracted with nationally-recognized professionals who used state-of-the art sustainable equipment and designs, who built some of the best trails in the Midwest, including:
    1. Roller Coaster
    2. Howling Wolff
    3. Ziggy
    4. The Connector
    5. The Creek Trail 
    6. Twist and Shout
    7. The Pines Trail
    8. The Skills Park, and
    9. The Switchbacks

These accomplishments would not have been possible without significant investments in our trail system--an estimated $100,000 from 2014-2019:
  • Memberships: Our mountain bike membership fees ($25/person, $50/family) generated $20,000 in revenue in 2019, and an estimated $50,000 since 2014. 
  • Donations: Generous contributions from our members and others in the Madison community--over $50,000 in the past five years.

Fundraising Goals

Our goal for fund raising is simple: Raise $1 in contributions for every dollar raised in memberships. For the summer of 2020, we estimate that we''ll raise $20,000 in memberships, so our goal is to raise $20,000 in donations. This can be done in several ways:

  • Encourage everyone who joins to add a contriibution of the same anount to the trail fund
  • Seek larger contributions from those who want to join our list of Trail Supporters.
