Another Successful Volunteer Maintenance Day!

IMG_0507On June 28, four brave souls came out to our final volunteer trail maintenance session for the early season despite the heat. We re-built the A-frame structure on Tantrum close to the Super Happy Fun trail intersection.

It was a fun little project to work on. The A-frame is now 3 feet wide and we are hoping that more riders will try out this super fun feature. We got to witness the first person go over it and he was stoked!

As always a huge thank you to the volunteers that came out and to Rec. Sites and Trails for supplying the wood.

Keep on enjoying the trails and if you notice any maintenance issues you […]

Trail Maintenance Morning this Sunday, June 28 – 9am

pix_TrailDays_2006_ES_01_ToolsThere is a Mt. Macpherson volunteer trail day coming up Sunday, June 28th at 9 am.

We will meet at the Flow Down parking lot and then head towards the south
section of Tantrum where we will be working on replacing the “A” Frame
feature which is just before the Super Happy Fun/Berm Donor junction. We will have the wood but if people could bring along a hammer that would be great. The project should take less than 3 hours depending on how many folks show up. This is the final scheduled XC maintenance session for this season.

XC Race Results from Race#3 (June 3)

If you’ve been wondering about the results from this Arrow Helicopters XC Race that took place back on June 3rd, here they are! Sorry for the delay in getting you all the details. The event was well attended and featured the endurance format that requires riders to ride as many laps as the can muster within a predetermined amount of time.
