Upcoming Trail Work Events
Saturday, March 4
Trailwork at Lake Norman State Park's Itusi Trail.
9:00 am – 12:00pm
WE NEED YOU AND A FRIEND to dedicate a few hours to help with a very important trail work project at Lake Norman State Park which will add many miles of new single track to the existing trail system. Why? The Itusi Trail is under contract with the Park Service for 13 miles to be completed by spring 2006. Most importantly, only a few hours invested in trail work contribute to endless hours of riding enjoyment!
1. Take I-77 North to either Exit 36 Mooresville or Exit 42 Troutman.
2a. From Exit 36 (Hwy 150) Mooresville:
Left off the ramp onto 150 and go 2 miles. Take a Right on Perth Road (toward airport). Go approximately 5 miles and take a Left onto State Park Rd, following the brown Lake Norman State Park signs into the park.
2b. From Exit 42 Troutman:
Left off the ramp and go ~ 3 miles to Troutman. Take a Left on Perth Road, following the brown Lake Norman State Park signs. Take a Right on State Park Rd., which will lead into LNSP.
3. Once in the park:
Follow the small "Trail Work" signs, taking a Right onto St. John's Rd. and another right onto a dirt road which will lead to the Tool Shed. Bob Karriker or another trailwork coordinator will meet us there and we'll follow the yellow arrows to the trail work site. If you arrive and we've gone, just grab a tool, sign-in on the registration sheet and follow the yellow arrows to meet us.
Saturday, March 4th, 9AM
The Harrisburg Half
The Winter Short Track Series has come to an end. It is time for another MAJOR workday at the Harrisburg Trail. The remaining work to be completed is berm building. This is the fun stuff!
In the past 2 weeks the major berm in the middle of section 1 (the big one) has been nearly completed as has the off-camber stretch of trail below the large culvert-crossing in section 2 (about 25 feet). Left to be completed are berms 1 & 3 in section 1, the berm in section 2 and finish spreading crush & run in sections 1 & 2.
Please bring wheel barrows, shovels, McLeods or tampers, extention cords, sledge hammers (I only have one).
If enough of you let me know you are coming, my wife and I will provide our famous home-made chicken noodle soup and bread. Let me know if you're planning to come:
firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-488-6000-cell.
