Until mountain biking came along, the bike scene was ruled by a small elite cadre of people who seemed allergic to enthusiasm. ~Jacquie Phelan

NW Trails Alliance Announces Sandy Ridge Work Parties!
Update: Help Needed-- We're looking for a couple of people to help greet people and get them signed in for the Nov 6th/Dec 4th work parties. If you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't have to be an experienced trail builder for this, just be able to smile and make people feel welcome upon arrival. Thanks!
The BLM and NWTA have announced the volunteer work party dates for the 2010-2011 build season.
The main build dates are on the following Saturdays:
June 4th. 2011 (National Trail Day and dedication of Sandy Ridge)
*NEW* for this season is an incentive program: for each work day you attend, you get an entry for a drawing to happen in June for the Sandy Ridge Trail dedication on National Trail Day. Sponsors have contributed some serious bike schwag, details to be announced.
Northwest Trail Alliance is excited to be involved with such a great project that seems to keep getting better. All trail work parties will have a meetup time at 9:00AM with the intent of being done and riding at 1:00PM. Come help be a part of making these trails some of the best trails around the Pacific Northwest.
Can't make Saturdays? Arrangements can be made if you would like to help out building trail during the week. Contact Zach Jarrett, Lead Recreation Planner for the BLM (Zachary_Jarrett@blm.gov).
Have a group that would like to come out and work together for a trail work day? Contact Tom Slovak (email@example.com).
Continued thanks to the BLM and IMBA and YOU for making this the great trail system that it is today!
