Knox Crowdfunding Project of the Month:
No, it’s not an old-school rap group, but rather the collective of industrious mountain bikers who built the “Washing Machine” trail at Haw Ridge Park—and now they want to build “Washing Machine Part 2.” This extension will replace the last straight-away of the trail with a much longer and feature filled section. “We think that Haw Ridge has the potential to be one of the most fun mountain biking destinations in the South East,” they write on their indiegogo.com campaign page, and they’re seeking $2,199 for materials (wooden features, paver armoring, etc.) and mini-excavator time. Mountain bikers unite!
