A brass solo incredibell with a ROMP logo on it?

These bells are not for sale in retail stores, on the internet or anywhere! But you have an exclusive opportunity to obtain your brass solo incredibell. It is quick and easy, with three low low payments. . .

Now how much would you pay?

We have a whole bunch of them, and we need to liquidate our inventory immediately! You can get yours now for the low low price of absolutely FREE!

If you would like one, donate a few hours of your time at a ROMP event. Next event:

Hey Josh:

This looks interesting, I think I might try to make it. Are any of the folks riding after the trailwork? And how long do you think it will take?

Get Out of Jail Free Cards

Just last month we did trail work with one of the rangers. Getting to know these guys sure helps when they start breaking out the cuffs.

The reality is though, that the trail technicians are all pretty cool guys and most are avid mountain bikers, and the rangers don't get involved in these kinds of community projects so often.

We schedule 9:30 - 3:30 and it is going to be hot this weekend. Despite that I plan on riding in to the trail work, and if it is not closed yet, I plan on riding Giant Salamnder before its extreme makeover, due to be revealed next summer.

The next participant in the ECDM Extreme Makeover Competition will be the ECDM Creek Trail. Both of these trails need to be moved further away from the stream beds and I expect will be just as much if not more fun in the future.

It helps to rsvp to [email protected] so that they pick a project that is the right size for the number of volunteers.

Trail work Report

About 8 people showed up for trail work today in ECDM. 3 were mountain bikers. We set out with an Open Sapce Technician (OST) to brush Resolution, while another group drove to Purissima to brush Soda Springs, and clear some slides.

We brushed the manzanita on the up hill side back a few feet, and the trail is much more like I remembered it when I first started riding at ECDM some 5 years ago. The lines of site are longer, and I am sure that there will be a few complaints about trail widening. On the other hand, there are some nice features on the uphill side that you can hit again, now that the brush is out of the way. Hopefully, the downhill Manzanita will continue to grow and in a decade or so the trail will be more shaded.

While we were working, one of MROSD's newest rangers hiked by. It is always good to see the rangers mixing it up with visitors. This is great PR for MROSD if you ask me.

After we finished, We rode down Resolution, and up ECDM trail, and looped around back to our cars along Serra Morena.

In late breaking hearsay, San Mateo county has yet to grant the permits for the retaining walls MROSD staff have planned for the extreme makeovers of Giant Salamander and the Creek Trail, It is highly unlikely that these trails will be closed this year for these upgrades.

As promised, everyone who brushed Resolution got a shiny new Brass Solo Incredibell with a ROMP logo on top.. Boy those have a nice tone. If you would like one, if you are regular volunteer or club officer, you can pick one up at the next ROMP meeting, July 24 at ROundtable Pizza in downtown Sunnyvale. Or you can volunteer at the next ROMP event. Not so sure when that would be. . . .

Thanks to everyone who showed up.
