    BCT Trail Day March 10

    Just a friendly reminder to get you slackers motivated

    March 10 is the next trail day.

    There has been trail crews working on section during the week for the last couple months so there's a ton of new trail besides the section we've been working on in Black canyon city. Last trail day we had 40+ hard working horse, hikers and mtb riders and we kicked butt and made a ton of progress. With a little more work we should be able to get the better part of a day of riding out there for an upcoming epic.

    Who's in?

    Hey, anyone else in for this Saturday's trail work? It's a great way to have a hand in the spectacular trail building going on up there. Jeff and I plan on being there and dirtrodr may show up as well. Congoman is in until lunchtime...

    Last time we had a good crowd of 40+ show up and alot of work got completed. They were shocked at the amount of mountain bikers contributing their time to come help. Very appreciative people and they really were impressed with all the hard work being put in by us all. It would be great to get at least that many up there again.

    Amazing as it seems, it really is a good time with lunch/water provided. Bring gloves if you do plan to come. I think last time they actually had some to hand out for those who didn't have any. All tools supplied and the heavier ones are packed to the trail work area by pack ponies.

    All are welcome to join us.

    I'm planning on being there. Anybody want to carpool from the Home Depot, NE corner of I17 and T-bird?

    I'm planning an all day adventure with a visit to the RSC for dinner and PIE afterward.

    I plan on being there again. I am in Fountain Hills if anyone wants to share a ride. I will not be stopping for pie or other treats afterwards. Need to get back home when we are done.

    The more the better!

    We are SOOOO close to having the upper loop connect with the Little Pan loop since professional trail builders have been working during the week. Once the upper loop is connected there will be 20+ miles of sweet singletrack which would make at least a 5-6 hour epic ride

    Who else is in?

    I would like to see Dirdir swing a pick. #1 because a lawyer may get a callous #2 if he can use that crank breaking power in his legs we'll get the trail finished in a day

    Also Walt because he's biult like a brick house and could match Dirdir's crank breaking power.

    Also Doug because it would turn into a competition between him and the two above who can muster up more power for longer and get the job done.

    I could go on but I'm getting lazy typing so much

    Bring the kids, a good day of work would really do most kids good these days.

    Come on out, I'll buy a round of good dark beer

    yep, just 3 miles to go and the first "pie ride" can take place. which could happen as soon as the end of the year if enough volenteers show up and put in a little time.

    I'll miss this sat. work day, as I'll be at trail building school.
