A message from CBro - King of the Barneys:
This Tuesday night, we’re going to have a trail-work night. It’s always more fun than it sounds, and it not only is good for the trails, but it is good for you, too! It will give you bragging rights to use against your slacking friends who only ride the trails, but never pause to give back a little. Let’s meet in the SE corner of the parking lot like we used to before we started going up the hill to ride. Meet at 5:45 PM.
We’ll be breaking into teams of 2 or 3 and pulling goathead plants out of the Military Reserve trails. So here’s what you ought to bring: heavy gloves, something to dig goathead plants out with; and something to take them to the dumpster in, such as a plastic garbage can or heavy duty bag.
I’ve been out a few times, and use a wagon with a plastic garbage can, and a device called “the Claw.” It’s a slow, tedious, zen-like labor of love.
We’ll work for an hour, maybe more, then convene in typical Barney® style for a better than usual BBQ and refreshment time. And we’ll feel like we earned it for a change!
The ground is fairly hard, so be prepared to work a little.
