MORE TRAIL DAYS

got this email and feel it is definitely worth sharing...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 3/7/07

All the parks in our area rely heavily on volunteer efforts to maintain the trails. A temperature fluctuating winter means that most trails have taken a freeze/thaw beating and need some TLC. A few hours of work from you will ensure that your favorite trails stay open and fun for everyone. You can also learn about trail building and maintenance techniques, scope out new places to ride and meet fun people. Hours worked in the spring and fall series will count toward MORE’s annual 20-25-25 Awards, which recognize those who put in over 20 hours of work and also support both MORE and the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) with their $25 membership dues. The 20-25-25 Awards include some great bike gear and discounts. Plus, you could be eligible to win a new frame or bike!

HOW?

Bring work boots or sturdy shoes, work gloves (an old pair of cycling gloves will do), plenty of water, and lunch or a snack. MORE and local land managers will supply the tools, but feel free to bring your personal favorite (shovel, pick, metal rake, hand saw, etc.). We’ll also have a stash of Clif Bars on hand, thanks to IMBA and Clif Bar!

WHEN?

Check the dates below for your favorite park or trail and mark your calendar NOW! Schedules are subject to change, please double-check the MORE website www.more-mtb.org for last-minute schedule changes, or email the contact person listed below. Unless otherwise noted, all workdays begin at 9:00 AM.
