BCT Trail Building Event - Sat 01/10

Come join in on building new trail for the BCT! The section we are building is further north and working to the south to meet up with the work crews that have been working on new trail heading north from the Soap Creek TH. Our last trailbuilding event we managed to get 1600' of new trail with the helpf of 33 volunteers.

It's a great way to give back a little to the mtn biking community that we all share. So if you have some time and don't mind a bit of hard work, please join in.

I likely won't make it this week. Should be riding Hurkey Creek, and Vale, in California on Saturday and Sunday.

Also, the February and April work dates conflict with the MBAA race series... bummer.


Just another half mile...

You could always fly back for the next trail building event in Feb to get your trail building fix :D

Sonia and I will be out there Saturday. The weather should be perfect and the soil moist for good digging.

Good to see you guys get out there while the dirt is good. Wish there was a community like this in NorCal. I am searching out the contacts.....
