    That would be 3 guys that showed up... Jay, myself and one other guy. It is really disheartening to see how few people are showing up for maintenance

    Guys this is your chance to fix some of the overgrown (roses and assorted briars) and washed out (or otherwise messed up) trails up at French Creek. It is not difficult only take a couple hours and is a enjoyable morning (chatting with fellow MTB'ers) I also go out for a ride (with a few others) after, and anyone who wants to can join us (moderate (8mph+-) pace)

    So.... if you haven't come out before, do so now (we need a good turnout this time) I can guarantee (my personal guarantee, whatever that is worth;-) you will have a good time doing something worthwhile (while demonstrating that mountain-bikers are THE most conscientious trail users out there)

    This is happening this coming Sunday (the 16th).

    Count me in

    I've got a bunch of stuff that I need to do this weekend, but I really hate that vague sense of guilt I get when I ride on nice trails and think, "Man I should do some trail maintenance..."

    Count me in.

    my gas hog can't get me there, but you've got my support for fighting the good fight in the commonwealth.

    i used to have the same situation here, trailwork days with half a dozen people. keep hammering away at it, we get about 25 people for trailwork through the summer now.

    Glad to hear it It looks like we'll have a nice day (cool and sunny). I am pushing (and dragging;-) everyone I know who rides there to show.
