    Like a bridge over...

    Saturday the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance, Colorado Mountain Club and Forest Service got together to build trail and begin construction of a long awaited bridge on the Little Raven trail.
    An impressive group of volunteers showed up and put in a hard days work.

    Meeting at the quarry.

    Some gnar footage from SSV.


    If you want to have an impact, the answer is to volunteer.

    Awesome, thanks for all you hard work. I noticed the materials staged and reroute flags last week when I was up there and was wondering what was up. That creek crossing was always a bit sketch.

    Strava: turn off your dork logger when you're not on sanctioned trails.
