Cinderella Trail Work at Joaquin Miller Park

We will continue to refine the Cinderella reroute trail and get it ready for the much anticipated rains and, if necessary, correct some of the problems created by the rain. For your protection, please wear long pants, sturdy shoes (no open-toed shoes) and long-sleeve shirt. Bring water. We will supply all the tools.  Join us for beer or Gatorade, and snacks at the end of the trail work day.

Endless Cycles is giving a $25 gift certificate to anyone who posts a picture of themselves, working at our trailday, on the Endless Facebook page! 

Remember to bring donations of clothng and other gear for our NorCal Teams. We'll get it to them.

    My little blog article about my day spent with such a fine group...http://questforzest.org/time-spent-with-btceb-an-impressive-bicycle-advocacy-action-group/

    Now I see what the long sleeve shirt that Mike gave me was for and that I didn't wear. Anyone else get poison oak?

      Poison Oak oil contamination of clothing items can be a problem since the oil , called 'urushiol', stays potent for along time and since it's and allergen the real problem is that your bodies defense mechanisms go into overdrive as the slighted exposure. This effect becomes worse with every exposure because it's an allergic reaction. while the experts say you can't build up an immunity, I personally thing differently because after years of repeated serious exposure, i don't seem to react badly anymore. go figure.
      in short, unless you were wearing a Tyvek jumpsuit, and stripped it off as you entered the parking lot and never touched it and it never touched you or your car or your possessions then, maybe, you could avoid an outbreak.

    • Mathew E.

      But typically, trail workers take off their gloves, sit down in their cars without changing (contaminating your car seat) then go home and use their bare hands to take off the clothes they were wearing and wash them with other clothes. they end up with outbreaks from secondary contact.
      Sorry to hear people had some bad luck with PO . my recommendations is to take benedryl by mouth and use massive amount of tecnu along with other topical antihistamines like benedryl creme, hydracortisone or, if you have allergic eczema and have Rx for Triamcinalone, try that. for serious cases see a Dr. Prednisone is what they gave me after i took a spill and landed in a field of PO but that suppresses your entire immune system so you better be have PO really bad before getting in to that.
      hope you get well fast and this doesn't discourage you from coming back for more.

    I am very sensitive to poison oak and so was not surprised to have a bit on my leg and arm despite those limbs being covered by pants and the cool long sleeve shirt.

    Hi everyone,

    Here's a link to the SF Chronicle article that was written about Saturday's work day:

    Great meeting many of you on Saturday, and I look forward to the next trail day!

    Thanks for organizing. Sorry that I had to leave early. Will try to make the next one. Walked Cindy on Sunday- looks great. Hopefully get my fork returned soon and can ride it.

    Hi everyone- I had a great time today working on the trail and meeting all of you. I learned a lot too. It was surprisingly not un-fun. I also left my water bottle on the trail, it is stainless steel with a black cap. It was laying next to a bike. If anyone picked it up I'd be grateful if you'd let me know. I can pick it up from you or get it at a meetup. Please let me know. Thanks!

      Hi Daniel,

      November 25, 2013

    • Leslie W.

      Hi Daniel, Sorry I missed you out there. But thanks for looking out for my water bottle. I guess I'll just have to get a new one- it was dented anyway. Maybe I wanted to lose it...

      November 25, 2013

  • Phil W.

    I got poison oak. I guess I was supposed to wear the long sleeve shirt Mike gave me.

    What great progress we made!

    Rode the reroute today. Lots of improvement. Still waiting for some more rain. But I found myself naturally riding more on the inside of the trail and felt like it flowed a lot better. I hadn't ridden it since before the last trail work was done. But It was way better than the last time I rode it. Glad I made it out to help. Definitely won't be my last time digging.

    The trail is really taking shape

    lat/long marker for parking location? I see 3 different chabot space center parking lots and have no idea which one is deemed overflow. Thanks.

    Jason:

    perhaps the intention was to meet in the parking lost next to the Metro Horseman's Association building? It is directly across the street from the Sequoia Arena entrance to the Park, but also on Skyline. Immediately south of the entrance to the Chabot Science Center, about 10100 Skyline according to Google Maps.

    Hello All! I'm wondering if anyone might be interested in camping out at Anthony Chabot Campground (http://www.ebparks.org/parks/anthony_chabot) after our work day, and going riding on Sunday? I live in Pacifica and have not really spent much time exploring the East Bay...so I was thinking to make the most of it. If not the camping...let me know if you might be interested in riding on Sunday. Would love someone in the know to follow:)

    Why would we meet at the Horseman's Building lot? That seems like a typo.
