Human Powered Trails Inc., a La Crosse area nonprofit that builds and maintains sustainable bike trails, has received a $10,000 grant to help buy power equipment.
The grant, from the Colorado-based Bikes Belong Coalition, will help HPT buy a Ditch Witch, a small piece of power equipment to move earth, said Bob Marhefke, the group’s chief operating officer. HPT needs to raise a total of $20,000, he said.
According to Bikes Belong, “the new trails will be geared at beginner and intermediate mountain bikers as well as trail runners and hikers, and will link to 10 miles of existing HPT-built trails, eventually doubling the size of the system.”
