Meeting at the gravel parking lot, flow loop entrance.

We will practice social distancing.

Thanks!

Just to fill in a few details...I have volunteered to lead this workday. A recent medical issue his left me unable to actually perform the work, as a result, I will be teaching /leading Saturday. So we need your help! We plan to work our way around the flow loop and I will be teaching basic tread maintenance (get the water off the trail, keep the riders on the trail). Most of the work will focus on drainage. Please post up here if you plan to attend so we know how many tools to bring. Shovels will be the most useful tools if you have your own. Flat shovels in particular.

We had a great crew out today. We were able to clear 2/3 of the flow loop. Huge thanks to Luis Scott Arnold Brian and Cassie for coming out and working hard for 3.5 hours in the heat! Everyone did an amazing job and the trail is going to drain so much better now. Arnold gets extra points for coming out and working on a trail he’s never even ridden!!! Next up we will finish out clearing the drains on the flow loop and host a workday to repair the hill behind the plumbers house. It needs a lot of love and was just too big of a project to incorporate into today’s scope. Thanks again to everyone!
