Announcing a new Meetup for Triangle Off Road Cyclists (TORC)!

What: TORC Briar Chapel trail work day

When: Saturday, March 6,[masked]:00 AM

Briar Chapel
16 Windy Knoll Circle
fearrington village, NC 27516

TORC will be doing some trail maintenance work at Briar Chapel Saturday March 6th at 9am.

We need to haul some rock from one location to the sites where will be working. If you have a vehicle that can haul rock we could use your help. Also, make sure you have sturdy work shoes, work gloves and plenty of water.

Specifically what we will be doing is fixing a couple washed out areas near the road bridge as you drive into the middle of the development. The trail that goes underneath the bridge where the grass slopes down from the road to the trail on both sides of the bridge. The construction of the slope used improper fill dirt and not tamped very well. The amount of rain has seeped into this fill dirt and has washed out where water run off converges over our trail. We will use local rock to crib and armor the washed out side slope and rock armor the trail tread surface.

We will also rock armor the trail where Stewart and Terry placed wood bridges for the BC race. Same situation there but not as bad.

Meet at the community center where we gathered for the BC race. E-mail me or call me at[masked]

If anybody is interested in heading over to Carolina Brewery after our hard work, post up.
