Trail Building Help
Hey everyone, since this has been an incredibly warm winter, my friends and I have decided to build some cat walks, teeter-totters, and jumps at our local trail. But the problem is, there are many areas and 4 of us. So we are looking for people in Massachusetts, around the greater New Bedford area, to help us out, you can spend an hour, or all the days we are there. I am on this forum everyday, so please respond. Also would it help to go to bike shops, and hardware stores to ask for donations? Thank you for your time in reading this thread. Keep riding.
Todd Isaksen, and Cam Sweet
ok, I"ll be the one to ask .....Is the land owner ok with your "trail work"? Do you have permission to build?......dear Lord I hope so.
I have a little project myself in the Greater Lawrence area... since I have time on my hands... Nothing I do could be worse than the ATV tracks that are ripping up these particular woods.

As a plug-NEMBA is very active in SE Massachsetts (and Vietnam isn't that far away either) have you tried to get thme on board-in addition to considerable resources (in man-power, money, tools and know-how) your local NEMBA chapter also has a good record of getting permission from land managers and getting big projects the greenlight-
A few of your local bikeshops (and a large number of your ;local riders-are already kicking in money and volunteerism to NEMBA as well!). If you think NEMBA doesn't understand you're desire for jumps and structures-hit Vietnam in milford for a gander.
I would at least drop them a line and tell them what you're thinking
