This will be our fourth time cleaning up the 1-mile section of Fayetteville Road that we've adopted through NCDOT. It runs from Massey Chapel Road at the north end to South Bend Drive at the south end. It'll be ready for a good cleanup by June 9, given that our last cleanup was in January.
We can ride beforehand, probably at 8:15, if anyone is interested.
Bring something to drink even if you don't ride, because it will probably be hot. Feel free also to bring your own set of work gloves if you don't want to use the semi-disposable gloves that DOT gave me.
The sexy orange bags are reversible, with chilled-out blue on the inside to denote recyclables. One of us can take the recylables home or to a recycling center. Sonoco Recycling is probably the closest (see map). I can easily do it myself if none of you expect to pass by there on the way home.
I'm guessing we'll be finished by noon, depending on how many people show up. We can go grab a beer and/or lunch afterward at Southpoint Mall.
I will probably be there before the cleanup to do a ride around the northern half of Jordan Lake, maybe something like this 34-mile route: http://goo.gl/maps/Q582E. Please post a comment if you'd like to join me, because I may bail if there's no interest. We'd need to start promptly at 8:15 a.m. If you like the idea but want to start later and do something shorter, please let me know, 'cause I'm flexible. There's also a good 23-mile option. Of course you're welcome to ride even if you can't stick around afterward to pick up trash.
Finally, a request for one of you: Please let me know if you can spare 45 minutes on Thursday or Friday to go pick up the official orange/blue bags at NCDOT's district office: 1069 Prison Camp Road, Durham, NC 27705. Kathleen Bowes is your gal. If she offers more gloves, tell her we don't need any more, because I have enough to last through our June 2028 cleanup.
