Tomorrow is the public meeting for the proposed Kaiser Woods Bike Park. As we've covered before, this meeting is critical. Put simply, Olympia will not get a bike park unless we show the support. There are few opportunities in life where your mere presence can make a d...

Thursday, May 2nd - 6:30 PM - Olympia City Hall

As you may know, the City of Olympia is looking to fill the gap in urban off-road cycling opportunities in the South Sound area by creating a bike park in West Olympia's Kaiser Woods. T...

2018 was a pretty amazing year for FOCF. We opened up the North Slope trail system, and already have more projects in the works on the north end. We completed phase 1 of the Little Larch climbing trail and made significant progress on phase 2. And, as always, we mainta...

Capitol Forest's DNR Recreational Managers are submitting several grants to help pay for improvements and resources in Capitol Forest. The importance of this work can't be overstated, and we hope all of these grants receive funding. But, every year far more grants are...

Our days are definitely getting shorter, and after a long, hot summer, the wet is coming. But, don't hang up the bike just yet. Fall is an incredible time of year to actually increase--not decrease-- your ride time. If you've traditionally been a fair-weather rider, he...

If you spent any time on the "internets" or the "twitters" last week, you probably saw that little old Washington was the topic of some major (at least by biking standards) news. Namely, at the end of session, the Washington Legislature passed a fairly innocuous bit of...

As most everyone knows, the upper section of the Greenline 6 trail was logged in late 2017 and has been largely closed in the interim. We now have light at the end of that tunnel: logging operations are nearing completion and we're ready to start rehabbing the trail. A...
