It’s Thanksgiving weekend! I’m thankful for the amazing friends I’ve made through mountain biking, the great crew that organize regular rides, the strangers on the trail who check up on each other, a healthy body that allows me to get out to ride, and lastly for the trails themselves. Not many realize how much effort goes into trail-building, but it’s incredibly rewarding to see trails transform before your eyes.
To support the efforts of the MRWA and the ongoing Fight Trail improvements, I propose a combination dig and ride on Sunday. I’m going to check with MRWA to see if there’s a section we can work on. Details to follow, but posting this to gauge interest.
Where: Fight Trail, Alabaster Way trailhead
When: Sunday, October 8. 9:30am dig, 2pm ride.
Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced
Notes: Bring water, work gloves, sturdy footwear, and clothes that can get dirty for the dig portion, your regular bike stuff for the ride portion. Supposed to be warm and humid, so will probably visit Lake Loop for a swim to cool down.
- Going, see you there!
- Wish I could, maybe next time.
- Maybe, I’ll let you know.
This is not an official ECMTB ride.
