  • Stomp Muni fest at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, AL

    I noticed this hadn't been posted about on here yet so I figured I'd let you guys know.

    The Third Annual STOMP Muni Fest at Oak Mountain State Park<http://www.alapark.com/OakMountain/> in Pelham, AL is less than a month away October 9-11. We are getting geared up for the event. Please fill out our registration form<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1IVQ-dRET6fwiAVMPR2S8K9acDvjNfTnJlHEalzMm_Lk/viewform> on our website blog if you plan to come. We look forward to another great time riding some of the best trails in the Southeast!

    Price:


    There is a $4 per day entrance fee to the park for adults ($1 for children under 12). Also, contributions would be appreciated to go towards the $100 group camping fee inside the park across from the South Trailhead.

    Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, Alabama has over 25 miles of trail maintained by the Birmingham Urban Mountain <http://bump.org/> Peddlers<http://bump.org/> (BUMP). You will find a trail map of the park here<https://www.google.com/search?q=oak+mountain+trail+map+pdf&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8>. Most of the STOMP Muni Fest rides will be around the South Trailhead. WE WILL MEET BEFORE EACH RIDE AT THE CAMPSITE BY THE SOUTH TRAIL HEAD.


    Here are a few announcements to help you get organized for the Muni Fest:

    Friday October 9th:

    • 3:00-5:00 PM - Check in/camp set-up at South Trail head. (We are planning to have a banner hanging in front of the field where we will be camping) There are plenty of trails to ride around the South Trailhead for those that want to come early. If time permits we may have a short night ride on the Lake Trail for those who bring lights.

    • 5:00 PM - Grill out at the campsite by South Trail head.. There are some great trials lines nearby too! Please bring your own meat and drinks (non-alcoholic) and we'll supply the ketchup, cheese, mustard, etc.

    • 12:00 PM - Lunch & free time. There will be a constructed trials course available during the entire festival for anyone to try. Also, near by are some short trails that can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes. And of course there's the short, 10 min. drive into town for those who want to eat out.
