Work Days

Date

Repeats every month on June, July, August, September, October on the first Monday until Mon Oct 12 2015 .
6/1/15 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Here is our work day schedule for this summer.  I'm posting here, Facebook, and the NEMBA webpage.  If things are cancelled due to rain or something else we'll post to Facebook and Google Group.

1st and 3rd Monday of each month.  Times and locations to be posted in advance.

2nd Saturday of each month as well.  Same deal.

Watch for Brattleboro work days, as well as a work day in Putney on the Cider House course on Saturday June 13th.

Possible projects to include, but not limited to:
  • There are 4 crossings on Far Side that could be either armored or bridged - including the two lower ones not far from 48T, the big mud hole on the upper part of the trail not far from the upper trailhead, and there's one more mud hole that could also be armored with rock.
  • Wet spot on Drop and Chute
  • The mud hole on Exit 1 (very close to the Woods Rd and the start of Exit 2)
  • The little bridge at the very very bottom of Bridges Tr is broken
  • The little bridge across Jump at its beginning - something wider?
  • Bitten/Skinny/mysterious new trail
  • The creek crossing at the bottom of Far Side near where D&C comes out.
  • Improve/enhance Goose Pond Trail between Labyrinth and Outback
  • Lewis Pond bridge extension
  • And of course, hang those signs
As always, if you see something that can be easily repaired have at it.  Like limbing out trails, removing those little stumps in the middle of trails, etc.  If you find something bigger out there that needs special equipment or a crew please post it up.

At Todd Amato​'s house in Vernon VT.  Lots of space for parking, riding right from his house, room for bike polo, and a pump track.

We ride at 10:30, and have leaders for a kids ride, a women's ride (but the ladies can ride in any group they want of course), a fast group, and a casual group.  The groups will ride such that they meet up occasionally.  Plan on a 2 hour ride.

The BBQ will start at 1Pm for those who can't make the ride.

Family/kid friendly.

Let us know if you are coming, and how many people.  The chapter will buy grillables and buns.  Bring a side/snack to share.

Full Moon Ride - April

Event Date

4/4/15 6:30pm to 9:30pm
We are going to try for some Full Moon rides this winter.  They could also end up being ski or snowshoes, or just beer drinking.  We'll see.  Dates are 1/4/2015, 2/3, 3/5, 4/4.  We might move the actual night around by one ot two days to take advantage of better conditions.  We'll see how it goes.  It will be cold...
