Welcome to our new website. The plan is to use the site to replace the WAMBA Google Group and mailing list for posting news, rides, and events. In the mean time, I want to encourage anyone registering for new accounts to continue to provide me with feedback on the site.

Chris McCoy and Lucas Miller are making a promotional video for the new Phase I trail system at HurricaneCreek Park. The completed video will be placed on the PARA and WAMBA websites to help spread the word about this great little trail system.
Trailhead entrance bridge, fence, and kiosk almost complete. Thanks PARA, you guys are awesome!

To anyone that decides to go out there and ride or look around, please do not park on the side of 2nd Ave NE as is aggravates some of the residents of the subdivision that don’t appreciate what is being done out there. Park on the left just after you turn off 216. Enjoy the mud and ruts as you climb up to the parking area. Maybe soon we will have a proper parking lot.
Today we got the bridge set and ramp frame built. Kiosk has been offloaded. We are waiting on the utility line locator services to come by and they have promised service by Friday @ noon. Once we have that complete we can setup the rail and kiosk. We are planning on going back in the morning to work on the decking ramp and road where we park. I am in the process of looking for signage to put up for 4-wheeler access restriction.
We are desperately hoping we can have everything but the map, hanging sign and decorative entrance done by Friday before the rain comes in. The place we are working is still extremely wet.

But, can the city back it up?
Tom Sauret thinks Anniston has what it takes.
An avid cyclist and director of the Southeastern Off-Road Bicycle Association, Sauret is a big fan of Coldwater Mountain, the nature preserve where bikers can speed along more than a dozen miles of trail dedicated to cycles.
“In two years, I think, they’ll be able to host a major race,” Sauret said. “That site can accommodate a multi-faceted mountain biking event.” ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
