Our trail captains - Andre Thibault, Peter Van Maren and Alex McComb - have volunteered to manage basic trail maintenance at Palgrave, Erin and Inglewood respectively.
We appreciate what they do so we all can ride however they cannot be expected to do everything on their own all the time.
It's not an unreasonable expectation that all members make a concerted effort to volunteer at least once in a season to help with trail building or trail maintenance so we have scheduled the following three Saturdays as trail maintenance days.
Specific details - parking, what we're doing, etc. - will be provided as time nears but please do mark at least one of these dates in your calendars so that when the call comes out for volunteers, you are available to participate.

· Saturday, May 5 - Palgrave. Hwy 50 parking lot.
· Saturday, June 9 - Inglewood. Meeting spot TBD.

An email call for volunteers will be sent out to all club members as each date nears so do watch your inbox for details. Bring your bike and you can ride after if you like!
