    Trail clearing Disciples

    Trail clearing Disciples, that is what we were nicknamed this past weekend by the local community. We made such a presence when everyone showed up at the Trailhead Coffee House each morning that people kept coming up and asking what we were doing. We descended like mad mountain bikers on the local trails this past weekend. Getting to the majority of the local favorites clearing off all debris, brushing, doing some minor tread work and removing close to 100 trees off of 8 different trails in the Oakridge area.

    There is so many people to say thank you to. I hope no one slipped under the radar this weekend and I didn't get you on the trail maintenance list, if so please drop me a note right away.

    I would like to extend a personal thank you to David and Becky at the Trailhead Coffee House in Oakridge. They offered up over 30 sandwiches with a drink, trail mix and goodie for the weekend, as well as some coffee, and their wonderful muffins, scones and brownies. I also want to say thank you to all their staff, Tamara, Primo and Paula, as well as several I don't know, they did a wonderful job helping this weekend go by smoothly. It is turning into a excellent place to meet and head out for the day. They have also been kind enough to offer some parking if you wish to do a ride from there, please check with them before heading out and make sure they have the room for the day to leave a vehicle.

    I have also been asked to pass along numerous other thank you from all the other volunteers to the Trailhead Coffee House.

    Clif Bar was also on hand with a couple boxes if bars to help fuel the hard working crews.

    My best way to say thank you to everyone that made it up for the weekend is offer up this report that is being sent into the Forest Service. Also don't forget we will be doing this in March (March 19, 20 & 21), I will be up there for the entire weekend again making sure there is an opportunity for everyone to come up when they can. We will see what trails need the work and where the snow level is at a little closer to the weekend.

    I really appreciate all the hard work every single person put in this weekend. I also understand other people had prior commitments and could not make it. If you were not able to make it please offer a word of thank you to all that did the next time you see them.

    Time To Ride,
    Richard

    Thanks for the words, won't be at Sea Otter this year-going on a 10 day solo tour. The Summer Ride Fest is happening July 15-18, you should drag a crew up for some awesome riding.

    Shiggy and Sparty had prior comitments that kept them from the crew this weekend. Though they do their fair amount through the year and promise me they will be there in March.

    Cool. Out of curiosity where could I find a route listing for RAO? I'm always looking for different routes.
