Give Local SJCBike Michiana Coalition has issued a $15,000 challenge match and a portion of the monies raised for the St. Joseph County Parks Fund will help complete Phase 2 (Darden Rd to Auten Rd) of the LaSalle Trail, a paved 10-ft wide bike-pedestrian path from Roseland to the Michigan state line. As part of the Indiana-Michigan River Valley Trail, this inter-state pathway includes HAWK crossings at key road intersections and will link to trails in Michigan and South Bend. Help us earn the BMC challenge money with your contribution!

SOUTH BEND — If two pleas for money succeed, it would allow St. Joseph County to finally pave a 2-mile gap in the trail that runs behind businesses in Roseland, from Darden Road north to the Michigan line.

First, the public could donate in a 24-hour giving spree on May 9, known as Give Local, where 67 local charities are vying for dollars. The Bike Michiana Coalition has pledged to match up to $15,000 of whatever is donated to the St. Joseph County Parks Fund on that day. That would secure the final dollars needed to pave the trail between Darden and Auten roads this year.

Second, county officials could give up to $225,000 in tourism funding, so that the trail could be extended from Auten to the state line.

We are less than 2 weeks away from our annual home cycling competition here at Notre Dame, and we are looking for volunteers to come out and help with set-up, registration, and venue safety on Sunday, April 2nd at Eddy Street.

This year, we are co-hosting a collegiate cycling weekend with Purdue University. We will be competing in time trials and road races at Purdue on April 1st, so Notre Dame will only be hosting a series of criteriums on and around Eddy Street.

Please signup for a volunteer shift (or 2 or 3). The Notre Dame Cycling Club is particularly grateful to our home race volunteers because it is through your efforts that our team members are able to compete. With volunteers helping us to put on the race, we are able to set aside the stress of hosting a cycling competition in order to be focused and ready to race on race day.
