April 16th, at 3PM, we will be doing trailwork over at Devil’s Backbone. We want to get the trails dialed in for our event in April ( DBB has already done the major winter cleanup work, and has asked us to see what we can do to help tune things up. Devil’s Backbone will provide food for us when we are done. All you need to do is buy yourself a cold beverage.

Meet up in the Brewery parking lot. Find the black Jeep with all the sweet tools in it. Please drive cautiously, as a 5K race will be finishing up in the area at 3PM.
Here is the plan:
  • 2:30PM: Trail work leaders will ride a lap of the trails, to assess the best spots to hit. Feel free to show up early and join us.
  • 3PM: Meet at the Jeep and go through the work plan and safety briefing
  • 3PM-6PM: walk the trails and do our work in small groups.
  • 6PM-dark: RIDE!!!!
  • Firepit o’clock: Grab some food at the brewery and relax.
What to bring:
  • Sturdy boots
  • Work gloves
  • Water, snacks, and other trail necessities
  • Bug repellent
  • If you have loppers, hand pruners, or leaf blowers at home, those will be the most useful tools for the work. Please bring eye and ear protection if you plan to run a power tool.
The work should be relatively easy and fun for everyone. Mostly trimming back some brush, maybe addressing a few wet spots.
Please send me a message if you plan to be there so I know how many other tools to load up.
