On Sunday June 24, 2007, Dieselbikes will be holding our third of five Trail Maintenance days in Lynn Woods. This trail day has been approved by the Lynn Woods Park Management. Saturday will begin phase two of developing a new trail near the power lines. We will require a ton of volunteers to complete the job on Sunday. The trail work site is near RT1 and will be a 10 minute walk from the Naked Fish parking lot! Here is what you need to know:

Start Time and Meeting Place:

Everyone should meet at the Naked Fish parking lot (On RT 1 North) at 9:00am. Dieselbikes has received permission from the restaurantís general manager to use their parking lot for this trail day event. We will be leaving the parking lot by 9:20 after a trail safety/work review meeting and head to the job site. If you can not make it there by 9:20, come any way and just ride or walk out to the work site. We will put you to work when you get their.

Remember, this trail day is sponsored by JRA Cycles. This means ITS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO be eligible for a FREE raffle ticket for an Iron Horse Porter Hardtail frame. The bike frame will be raffled off on JUNE 24th at the end of the trail day. Dieselbikes raffle & prize rules apply. Please click here for raffle details.

We also have an additional co-sponsor added to this months trail day. Wheelworks Bicycles has graciously kicked in some free swag to be given away after the trail day. Once a winner for the JRA bike frame is selected, we will use the rest of the remaining ticket to pass out the Wheelworks swag. We want to thank both JRA and Wheelworks for this support.

Estimated Project Time:

We accept this project to take 5 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to ride this new trail! We may have a group ride after the trail day, but this is weather/time dependent.

What to Bring:

Bring your own bug spray, food, water, pair of work gloves and eye protection. Weather is always questionable, so dress appropriately. Bring your bike is encouraged but always optional. Please remember, at this point in time Dieselbikes does not have the funds to provide lunch. It is suggested you bring your own food, snacks water and/or drink.

What WE are going to do:

The work map below shows the job site area. Remember, everyone should meet and park at the Naked Fish on Route 1 North. We will be cutting a new Power Line Trail that will run in the tree line, parallel to the power lines, but remains with in the boundaries of Lynn Woods. We will complete phase two of this project which is highlighted by the blue dotted line on the work map below. This trail section will connect the beginning of Deep Woods Trail and run towards OX Pasture Road, but remain within the woods. This trail section will be routed to utilize all natural rock features to create a suitable thread and enhance the trail flow.

There is a ton of work and we will need groups of people to cut, clear and armor sections of the new trail. This new trail will be fun for all mountain bikes and we plan to make it flow in both directions.

This will be a labor intensive day and tools will be provided for this work day. If you have your own personal tools you rather work with, feel free to bring them, but you are responsible for your own property. Please PM or e-mail (frankd@dieselbikes.com) if you need further information.
