The Ripon College cycling team is hosting two trail work days, this Saturday and Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteers are sought to assist in the creation of two miles of singletrack mountain bike trails in the college’s Ceresco Prairie Conservancy.

Last August, Ripon College was the recipient of a $25,000 Pepsi Refresh Project grant to construct the mountain bike trails in Ripon.

The grant is being used to rent necessary equipment and retain the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s (IMBA) Trail Solutions team to assist in the trail design and construction.
