    First Sandy Ridge dig of the season this Saturday 12/8

    It's that time of year-- the moisture is here and it's time to give back to the trails.

    NWTA and the BLM invite you to Sandy Ridge (SRTS) this Saturday, 12/8/2012, for the first Trail Maintenance day of the 2012-2013 winter.

    The plan this winter for Sandy Ridge is to have fewer trail maintenance days, with a sponsor for each one. Our first sponsor this Saturday is the Oregon Enduro Series, giving back after the event this past summer. Devon from Oregon Enduro Series will be there with some swag and as always, we'll get diggers up the road for a post-trailwork ride.

    Come out and throw some dirt for a few hours with other Sandy Ridge volunteers!

    Sandy Ridge Trail Maintenance Day
    • 12/8/2012
    • 10AM-2PM
    • Meet in the parking lot

    I'm moving to Portland in February and you can bet I'll be doing my part to keep the trails fresh and challenging. Hell, my 8 y.o. daughter helps me when i'm digging DJ's. Hope you have a big turn out of volunteers as it should be!

    Have you enjoyed riding at Sandy since the rain started? I sure have! Thank you gravel. Being able to rail when this much water has been dropping from above is beyond any problems caused by the gravel when it is summer and you should be riding somewhere else anyway. Thanks again gravel.

    Elistan-- I'll bring a special bucket of gravel just for you.

    Seriously, many sections of lower Hide & Seek would not hold up like they have without the additions to the soil over the last two winters. Late season additions (when it's not as wet) did cause some issues... but the processes are being refined.

    Looking forward to seeing some of you out there on Saturday!

    Yes, agreed, another tech trail from the top to link into the available lap options.

    FYI the eastside trail is scheduled to open spring 2013.

    Other trail build days had a sign up if I remember. For this one do we just show up?? Thinking of coming out and earning some trail karma.

    qft. "Natural" armoring of a few sections that will not feel so man-made. Flow-inducing reroutes. Some nice swag handed out, too.
