On Sunday October 11, 2009, Dieselbikes will be holding our forth and final Trail Maintenance day in Lynn Woods. This trail day has been approved by the Lynn Woods Park Management. Sunday will be an enhancement trail work day and we will require a ton of volunteers to complete the job. The trail work site is a 20 minute walk from the Ballfield Parking lot. Here is what you need to know:
Start Time and Meeting Location:
Everyone should meet at the Ballfield Parking lot (Great Woods Road) at 9:00am. We will be leaving the parking lot by 9:15 after a trail safety/work review meeting and head to the job site. If you can not make it there by 9:15, come any way and just ride or walk out to the work site. We will put you to work when you get their.

Project Weather/Cancellation Notice:
Dieselbikes works regardless the weather conditions are rainy or sunny. If inclement weather such as but not limited to severe lighting, heavy rain, nor'easters and or snow, we will then post a cancellation notice one day prior on the homepage of our website.
Estimated Project Time:
We accept this project to take 5-6 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to ride the new trail work! We may have a group ride after the trail day, but this is weather and or 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:
We are installing 40-feet of additional bridge sections onto the ends of the famous Meeting House Swamp Bridge. Over the last decade both ends of the bridge have become soft due to user traffic and the increasing size of the swamp. We will be extending both ends of the bridge to create new termination points as well rock armoring both locations to create a more stable trail thread.
90% of the bridge material will be hauled out to the work site (within a few hundred feet) by volunteers prior to the scheduled trail day to increase productivity on Sunday. We will still require all volunteers to help move this material and carry additional tools and material out to the work site before fabrication begins. This will be a labor intensive day (5-6 hours) 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 e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need further information.
