Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why Should I Join COGGS?
A: COGGS is the only organization that maintains multi-use trails for mountain biking in the Twin Ports. We maintain 30 miles of singletrack in Duluth and Superior and a portion of your membership goes directly back into taking care of the trails you use so often.
COGGS also puts on races, skills clinics, group rides. All these are opportunities to meet other people who ride bikes and to improve your own skills. Join COGGS and come hang out!
COGGS also annually distributes bike helmets to kids so that they can safely enjoy the sport we all love.
Q: What trails are COGGS responsible for?
A: COGGS maintains trail at Pokegama in Superior, Piedmont, Hartley and Lester Park. We also assist Mont du Lac Recreation Area with their trails.
Q: What do I get with my membership?
A: As of 2012, COGGS is a Chapter of IMBA, so you become a member of both organizations. So not only are you supporting you local trails, but you're supporting the organization that does incredible amounts of trail advocacy and construction of trails all over the country. Your membership gets you one item of IMBA swag and also allows you to ride at Mont du Lac for free on our Tuesday Night Rides. Along with those immediate rewards, membership to COGGS allows you to get plugged into a club that has a lot of fun riding bikes. We race, we have group rides, we do trailwork, we have fun. If you want to get to know new people who ride bikes, involvement with COGGS is the best way to do it. And by being a member you're basically putting more trails outside your door because the money that comes into COGGS mostly goes towards trailbuilding.
Q: Where does the money from my membership go?
A: 60% goes ot IMBA and 40% goes to COGGS. The vast majority of the money that comes in to COGGS goes directly back into maintaining our trails and also developing new trails.
