On Saturday April 26, 2008, Dieselbikes will be holding our first of four Trail Maintenance days in Lynn Woods. This trail day has been approved by the Lynn Woods Park Management. Saturday will begin the final leg of the new trails network installed by the RT1 power lines. We will require a ton of volunteers to complete the job on Saturday. The trail work site is near RT1 and will be a 15 minutes walk from the Naked Fish parking lot! Here is what you need to know:

Start Time and Meeting Place:

Everyone should meet at the Naked Fish parking lot (On RT 1 North) at 9:00am. Dieselbikes has received permission from the restaurant’s general manager to use their parking lot for this trail day event. We will be leaving the parking lot by 9:20 after a trail safety/work review meeting and head to the job site. If you can not make it there by 9:20, come any way and just ride or walk out to the work site. We will put you to work when you get their.

Estimated Project Time:

We accept this project to take 6 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to ride this new trail! We may have a group ride after the trail day, but this is weather/time dependent.

What to Bring:

Bring your own bug spray, food, water, pair of work gloves and eye protection. Weather is always questionable, so dress appropriately. Bring your bike is encouraged but always optional. Please remember, at this point in time Dieselbikes does not have the funds to provide lunch. It is suggested you bring your own food, snacks water and/or drink.

What WE are going to do:

The work map below shows the job site area. Remember, everyone should meet and park at the Naked Fish on Route 1 North. We are cutting the final section of trail to eliminate the use of the old power line trail and bring all the trail riding back into the woods. This new trail will be the final section to connect Shark’s Tooth Trail directly to Bow Ridge.

This is a HUGE project and probably Dieselbikes most extensive trail project to date. This new trail section will measure a total of 750ft as it connects you from Bow Ridge down to El Sweeny Trail. The best part of this new trail is that 375ft runs downhill. And when we say downhill, we mean downhill!

Two major goals exist for this trail day. One is to define the trail path and the second is to build a stone bridge to cross a stream bed. As always this trail section will be routed to utilize all natural rock features to create a suitable thread and enhance the trail flow.

There is a ton (we mean a TON) of work and we will need groups of people to cut, clear and armor sections of the new trail. If we can not complete all aspects of this trail, Dieselbikes will schedule a follow up trail day to complete the job.

This will be a labor intensive day and tools will be provided for this work day. If you have your own personal tools you rather work with, feel free to bring them, but you are responsible for your own property. Please PM or e-mail ([email protected]) if you need further information.
