    pedaler - You should come meet me next Tuesday morning for a ride. The place I spend my time riding is sorely underutilized and you may not have been there yet.

    You folks should go and help out on this project. It is real close to the pedestrian bridge over the hudson and there are some nice places for food and drink afterwards.

    I already rode the first sections and this is going to become a great destination but they need your help.

    Trail work is fun too!

    I'd be down to help (and have trail building experience), but a lot of us bike shop guys work Saturdays!

    If you folks can schedule a work day for a Sunday, I'll definitely be there. Local to me, too.

    Its great to have help from the shop guys!

    Getting this trail built soon will have to allow for flexible schedules, so Sunday & after work weekdays will be happening.

    Stay tuned &/or PM your availability times.

    You can take Resevoir Rd in Highland up to Berean Park. Or cross the Walkway- there is a connector trail planned from it.
    New singletrack is on the mt behind it with the towers -Illinois Mountain.

    Hey guys, I am headed to Poughkeepsie next week (June 14-16) and would like to hit some trails Friday if anyone is available. If not, do you guys have a recommendation for what I should hit? I have done a little searching but would love some recommendations.

    Thanks
