Today, we are happy to announce the third and final winner of the 2014 Bell Built Program. With 13,896 votes being accumulated in the last two weeks, the Richmond Regional Ride Center in Richmond, VA, will take home the final slot as the winner of the East region.
The Richmond Regional Ride Center, headed up by RVA MORE, will split the $100,000 in grant money with the two other regional winners. With help from both our team at Bell Helmets and those at IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association), this grant money will help secure the funding to rehabilitate 15 miles of existing mountain bike trail and construct an additional 20 miles of trail. Their goal is to incorporate approximately 15 miles of stacked-loop singletrack, and an additional 5 miles of flow trail, which will focus on a progression of difficulty. The project will also focus on improving the existing trails on-site to diversity trails and depth of experience, along with developing a new gateway trail with two loops for novices, children, handcycles and bicycles pulling child-trailers.
A BIG congrats to RVA MORE and the Richmond Regional Ride Center for taking the East region and being named the third and final winner of the 2014 Bell Built Program.
