The Classroom portion will be at the Sterling Forest Lautenberg Visitor Center, and the field work portion will take place at Ringwood State Park on Saturday Oct 18.

    You are invited to join us for a day of learning about the latest techniques for building and maintaining sustainable trails.

    Just a reminder for next Saturdays events. There is still space available, and the field work session counts towards Paydirt 08, so you while you are learning, you can earn race points and get your name into a raffle to win a bike.

    Good Deal!

    Went to the IMBA class room session at Duke Island Park Bridgewater last Saturday. It was fantastic. Lots of really good info on trail systems, sustainablility, techniques, flow and tech, do's and don'ts, what damages a trail and what makes a trail last. You name it, the Trail Care Crew gave a fine presentation. All that and a FREE LUNCH! Did I say a FREE LUNCH! I would have been way ahead of the curve without the lunch. Forget about it, now I have knowledge and food. It was nice to see a good mix of folks some learning new and some polishing and reinforcing their already deep wells of skill, all expanding their iq's.

    I wasn't able to stick for the field work but plan on heading to Ringwood for the outdoor session this Saturday. Yes this weekend the IMBA Trail Care Crew is doing it again at Ringwood!
