That's our off weekend. (edit: DOH! Supposed to have off that weekend, but forgot we have TW that Sunday due to Easter the next weekend, we don't have anything Sat though) I will put it on our site and see if we can't round up a small crew to head over. Any plans for a ride afterwards?

Reason: didn't look at calendar close enough
Thank you for your response. Any help would be greatly appreciated and reciprocated in some fashion. Mainly my focus with this work day is to clean the crap (branches, logs, rotten trees) off of trails that offer no technical challenge and keep the bridges clear of leaf debris. Trail 15 needs some encouragement in a few areas to keep water flowing off the trail. The snow and rain have taken their toll. With a good enough response I can split folks into groups and have the whole park covered in a few hours. I am also sending this out to non-biking groups too. It would be great to have a great local response from those who use the trails most. Reclaiming trail 4 was a major accomplishment because it allows the bikers to do the best loop at GD. That should be worth some peoples time....right??
No formal ride after the work day but please feel free to bring your bikes and do so. Perhaps other folks are willing to lead a ride that day.
