Impromptu Trail Work 12/27/16 9AM

 

A group on concerned citizens (mountain Bikers 😉 who are still in the giving mood after Christmas and happen to have some time off this week have organized a trail work day on the new”Blue”loop at Mountain Laurel TRails.

These fine folks will be doing rockwoork (kewl) and working on the tread on this new loop. Were hoping it will be between 2 and 3 miles when finished.

Plans are to make this a very technical loop with lots of supersizes to keep you on your toes.

Contact Matt Huckfeldt, Chuck Fraser or Justin Emmert for info. All tools and moral support will be provided 🙂

Any other questions can be directed to Bob @ 276-340-9144 who will unfortunately be stuck at work

 

 

 

 

3rd annual Ride Run Walk Ride

The Henry County Bike Club’s 3rd annual get outside Walk-Run-Ride” is
“ON” The ride-walk-run will start at 1 P.M. sharp at the Chain of Fools bike shop on 1/1/17. There will be a 15, 30 and 50 mile ride options as well as a mountain bike ride.

We will be meeting at the Chain of Fools bike shop early and please bring your extra canned foods to donate to our local food banks !!

This year we will also be supporting a mountain bike ride @ Mountain Laurel Trails @2. Mountain bikers are encouraged to meet at Chain Of Fools, bring canned goods then caravan to MLT.

If anyone would like, I could use ride leaders and sweepers. Please let me know if you would like to be one. The run and walk will be on the Spur and Dick and Willie trail, and cyclists can also chose to stay on the trail. This is not a supported event, but we will have water to fill your bottles!

There are plenty of watering holes Up Town we can meet at after! I  haven’t asked, but I’m sure Aman will welcome you in at Hugo’s!

This will be a “Rain or Shine” event! If the weather is not rideable condtions, please bring your food donations and we will find the watering hole a little sooner! I am sure some of the “Yellow Jacket” riders can guide us to the location!

The ride / run/ walk has continued to grow and we look to have the biggest turnout out yet this year!
