Announcing a new Meetup for The Washington, DC/MD/VA Mountain Bike Meetup Group!

What: MORE ride & trailwork day at Fairland

When: Saturday, May 29,[masked]:30 AM

Where:
Fairland Park (Montgomery side)
3928 Greencastle Road
Fairland, MD 20866

Please RSVP to Austin - I will only be there if I'm in town for Memorial Day weekend.

What: Trailwork and pre-work ride
Where: Fairland Park
Date: May 29, 2010?Saturday
When: 9:30 am for about 2 to 3 hours.
Pre-work ride: 7:30am (weather depending?call day before if uncertain)
Meet: Pavilion parking lot, off Greencastle Road (see directions below).

We will rock armor a muddy section on the new reroute we built this past winter?plus drop in some rock in a few small spots here and there. If you have a wheelbarrow, please bring it.

I suggest bringing work gloves and boots, long pants and enough to drink for several hours.

Pre-ride will depend on weather. No problem if anyone just wants to get in the ride and can't stay. Just don't pass us on the trail after we get working--we'll have pitch forks and axes (actually, McLeods and Pulaskis, but they do the job just the same:)

TELL OTHERS WHO MAY RIDE WITH YOU AS NO POSTERS WILL PUT UP ON THE TRAILS BEFORE THIS WORK DAY

Thanks,
Austin Steo
