cmbr name that trail


Help us pick some real names for the Mirror Lake Singletrack!

Come out to Matanuska Brewing in Eagle River this Sunday February 10th 6:30pm and help us pick some real trail names for the Mirror Lake Singletrack!

Yep, the colors were always meant as a temporary thing. Our Grand Opening is June 1st, and we need to get our maps and signs ready.

We’ll be drinking beers and brainstorming upstairs, so please stop by!


1. Icy River Rampage Sat Feb 9th!

This 20/10-mile winter bike race is a fundraiser for the Nature Center. Race will start and end at the Center, with some riding on the frozen Eagle River. There will be an award ceremony, fire and barbecue after the race. Entry fee is $35 if pre-registered, and $40 on the day of the race.  Race is sponsored by the Trek Bicycle Store in Anchorage.

2. Eagle River Fat Tire Rides Facebook Group

Twice a week beginner-to-intermediate fat bike riding group in Chugiak-Eagle River.  Rides announced on Facebook.

3. Club Permit to ride Eklutna, Inc. Private Trails.

We are happy to partner with Eklutna, Inc. to provide current CMBR members a permit to ride the private Eklutna, Inc. trails between Peters Creek and the Eklutna River (behind Mirror Lake Middle School), and also the South Fork Eagle River Confluence “Singletrack” Trails off of the Briggs Bridge trail.  This opens over a dozen miles of bike trails to Chugiak-Eagle River riders!

4. Renew your CMBR membership today!

Thanks to everyone who renewed their memberships during our winter fundraising drive!  Upcoming trail projects include maps and trail signs, repairing muddy spots, adding a few skill-building features and year-round trail mainentance.  Our youth summer program CMBR-kids will be starting up in June and spring trail work starts mid-May.  If you haven’t already, please consider joining or renewing your CMBR membership!

5. Thanks trail packers and groomers!  WE LOVE SNOWSHOERS!

We’re lucky to have a crew of folks who regularly snowshoe the trails to pack them down for fat bike riding, this helps smooth out any bumps left by walkers..  Please tell your friends that we welcome snowshoes on the trails!
