    Attn: WI & Midwest Riders Blue Mound Sunday

    Club Message from:Capital Off-Road Pathfinders

    BM WORKDAY THIS SUNDAY, 10-2, MEET AT EAST TOWER

    The 12 hr at Blue Mound is nearing, and we have one more short chunk of
    trail to build in preparation. It seems that last year, the consensus was
    that "there ain't enough climbs" - so let's get together and add one more
    singletrack piece.

    >From the pool, to the east tower at the top of the hill.

    Our friendly neighborhood park superintendent Karl has approved the flag
    line, now we need to head out there and clear the trail. Not as much rock
    work as Holy Schist, this will involve clearing vegitation and bench
    cutting a steep slope - and mowing a path beside the beebalm and
    black-eyed susan.

    Workday will run from 10am to 2pm with a ride after, weather permitting.
    As always, bring your own water and munchies, wear sturdy shoes (no
    sandals!), and workgloves are recommended. for this segment, I recommend
    long pants, too.

    We'll start working at the top and end up at the pool. If a goodly number
    of volunteers attend, this will be a short workday - bring a friend.

    Consider bringing your swimsuit as well - the pool should be open, and
    current forcast is for a beautiful day. Work hard/play hard at Blue
    Mound.

    auhg. This is my first weekend in town and I highly doubt I'll be able to get away to help y'all out. At some point I'd like to be able to though. I'll keep an eye out for posts here.
    Just a regular guy.

    Yes, you will be able to find the tower. After leaving the visitor station and buying your park pass ( $5-6?) and trail pass ( $4) you will drive straight and stay left where the road kinda splits. A right there will take you to the swimming pool and the beginning of the bike trail. So stay left and you should see the tower and parking on the right.
    Terrain is semi tight rolling singletrack with some smaller hills and lots of rocks. Real fun stuff.

    The towers (E and W) are at the top of the park. The trails start at the swim pool parking lot, and work will be near the pool.

    I suggest you consider annual passes for trail and parks with a few months of riding still available. Same passes are needed for all of the state parks, state forests and state trails.

    Park staff usually knows where we're working, and somebody working often carries a 2 way FRS radio with channel 411.

    Bring water, food, bike and/or swim wear too!
