With the help of our entire community (and lot of others, too!) Knoxville came out on top of the Bell Helmets national competition for a $100K grant to build a world-class mountain bike trail in the Urban Wilderness. After winning the Eastern regional competition, Knoxville came alive in the finals and beat both California and Minnesota for the award with 26,619 votes!
The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club plans to build the expert downhill trail on Legacy Parks’ property within Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness. This will add a progression element not available in our area and will attract visitors and events to our area.
Thanks to everyone who voted!
