TORC RTP Trail (trail maintenance work day following a ride)

**Pre work day ride.

Date: 03/22/2014

Time:  8:30am  Ride RTP for a few laps.

Time: 9:45am  Workday

Meet at RTP Trails parking lot.

The task for this workday will be to armour, with rock, a few muddy areas.  A portion of the trail has already been armoured.  We will be extending that armoured section.

We will be working with rock…gloves would be recommended.  Bring a spade if you have one.  It would be great if anyone has a wheelbarrow they could bring.

I realise that this workday conflicts with a few other events but thought I would see how many volunteers would show up.  The workday will consist initially of harvesting rock from the rock pile and transporting it to the area needing the armouring.  After the rock has been transported we can begin armouring.

The ride and work day is dependent upon the weather of course.  Please check this link (http://trianglemtb.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=34874.0) for updates.



Volunteer Trail Workday at Briar Chapel: Couldn’t have asked for more!

The trail workday at Briar Chapel this past Saturday 12/21/2013 couldn’t have gone better!  We were fortunate to have two trail building companies come out and volunteer their time to finish up the most recent additions to the Briar Chapel trail system.  A huge “thank you” goes out to Elevated Trail Designs for their initiative (laying out and preparing the section we worked on), Stewart from Native Trails and all the fellow mountain biker volunteers for their time and effort and Briar Chapel for making this possible!!!

Post workday food was provided by Briar Chapel and everybody enjoyed awesome brews from Crank Arm Brewing!

The new sections of trail are not yet open for riding.  Hopefully with decent weather in the coming days we will be able to open them for everybody to enjoy.  Stay tuned!

A few pictures from Saturday:

Bright and early!
