    If you are unfamilar with Chico Ravine, it's one of the old unmarked trails off of the Big Laguna Trail, that has been designated Multi-use, it's a sweet trail and a part of Tour De Noble.

    I'll be there, with my bike...

    Right on Mark.

    I think not only is this is a great opportunity for people to work on some trails with IMBA, but also to work with and find out more about our local Forest Service guys. Iím going to guess that most people donít know some of these guys up at Mt. Laguna. Weíve got a small handful that truly are avid mountain bikers. Nikolai (USFS Developed Recreation Manager) is the person responsible for working with IMBA and actually arranging this trail work session on national forest land. Pretty cool in my book. I think this could be a small stepping-stone towards opening some doors if we continue, as group, to work with these guys. It could be a good in to building future trails????

    See you there!

    "Participants will be helping to open up 10 miles of singletrack trail previously closed to mountain bikes."
