Trail Project # LYW20100424
Trail Work Day: Saturday April 24, 2010
Location: Espresso Trail Build - Phase 3
Park: Lynn Woods Reservation - Lynn, MA

On Saturday April 24, 2010, 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. Sunday will be a continuation of work on the Espresso Trail. We will require a ton of volunteers to complete the job on Sunday. The trail work site is near RT1 and will be a 15 minutes walk from the Fat Cactus Restaurant (Former Naked Fish) parking lot! Here is what you need to know:

Start Time and Meeting Location:
Everyone should meet at the Fat Cactus Restaurant parking lot 215 Broadway Lynnfield, MA (On RT 1 North) at 9:00am. Dieselbikes has pending permission from the restaurantís general manager to use their parking lot for this trail day event. We will be leaving the parking lot by 9:15 after a trail safety/work review meeting and head to the job site. If you can not make it there by 9:15, come any way and just ride or walk out to the work site. We will put you to work when you get their.

Project Weather/Cancellation Notice:
Dieselbikes works regardless the weather conditions are rainy or sunny. If inclement weather such as but not limited to severe lighting, heavy rain, nor'easters and or snow, we will then post a cancellation notice one day prior on the homepage of our website.

Estimated Project Time:
We accept this project to take 5-6 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to ride the new trail features we will be installing! 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:
Remember, everyone should meet and park at the Fat Cactus Restaurant (Former Naked Fish) on Route 1 North. This will be a trail day to complete unfinished work and repair any potential problems that may have resulted from weather conditions and or user traffic.

Additional rock armoring and bench cutting will be completed to firm and expand the trail thread. The removal of trees in the general area for use as trail boards and berming will be required on each of the three switchbacks traversing the hillside. This is a BIG project with 100ft of trail thread slated for re-work to add features making this downhill run fun and flowy.

There is a ton of work and we will need groups of people to cut, clear and armor sections of the trail thread. 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.
