The International Mountain Bicycling Association's (IMBA) Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew will be in Oakland March 19th to talk trails, teach people proper trail building technique and spend quality time digging in the dirt. The visit is one of about 70 stops on the 2011 schedule.

Figure I'd update this post as there is still space in the IMBA Trail Building School. We've nailed down the work project - doing a small reroute on Bishops Walk. BW is the trail that starts down at the Abby and leads up to the Lookout. One corner has gotten all blown out (with multiple trails being formed), with some nasty ruts. We're planning on lengthening the trail, which will reduce the grade and also make the trail a little more fun.

Sign up for the Trail Building School.









The Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay is also having a social group ride with the IMBA crew the day after, Sunday March 20 at 10am, riding in Dimond Canyon, up to the new reroute on Bishops Walk, and then loop around in Joaquin Miller Park. Then we'll head back for a BBQ at the BTC President's house - which is right near the start of the ride at the Dimond Park Recreation Center, 3860 Hanly Road Oakland. You can RSVP for the ride on the BTCEB Group Ride calendar
