With the support of the community and our fundraising events, we’ve been able to install a new drinking fountain at our Tienken Road trailhead, purchase and install bicycle repair stations, trash receptacles, and bike racks.  We are currently fundraising for an educational side path with native plant gardens and are so pleased to again have the support of Steve Johnson and the Motor City Bike & Brew Tours,” said Jim VanDoorn, President of the Friends of the Paint Creek Trail.  The Friends are selling raffle tickets for the 2016 New Belgium Fat Tire Bike.
