Trail of Tears Trail Care

Date

4/8/17 (All day)

Cape Cod NEMBA will be holdiing a trail care event on Saturday April 8th at the Trail of Tears. We'll meet at the 1590 Race Lane parking lot at 9:00 AM.

The plan is to devide up into groups and go for a "Clip & Ride".  So bring a folding saw or a hand lopper as well as your bike.

Prior to the last storm the trails were in pretty good conditions so hopefully we'll be doing a lot more riding than clipping.

If plans change or there's bad weather we'll post them here and on CC NEMBA's Facebook page.

CC NEMBA will provide coffee and donuts and we should be done by Noon. A ride will follow the trail care session for anyone who has the time.

Hope to see you there.  :-)
