This year there were some that went and sprayed sections of the trail and it worked phenomenally!  The park supplies the product and the sprayers and will supply string trimmers, pruners, and hand saws for anyone who wants to do trail work.  The sections that were sprayed this past spring are still clear!

3 years later those sections are still clear.

Trail is in GREAT shape.  It's been trimmed all the way around.  Deadfall is being consistently removed (except for logs intended to be trail features).  Bridges have been repaired/replaced.  Get it while it's good!

Rants and Raves / Invaluable help from BGI
« on: October 31, 2018, 11:18:20 AM »
Kudos to BGI and specifically service manager Mark Degunya.  He was a great help on getting the suspension setup on our mountain bike tandem.  There isn't much to choose from when it comes to tandem forks and shocks.  We chose a standard Fox Float 34 SC fork and Fox Float DPS shock knowing they were not going to be valved correctly for the application.  On the first ride it was obvious the suspension was too stiff.  Working with Mark we concluded there needs to be less compression damping and more rebound.  Mark contacted Fox to verify our assessment and give them all the info they needed to ensure quick turnaround.  I sent the fork and shock to Fox and they turned them around in one day with expedited return shipping.  All at no cost to me.  The bike now rides really well and is a joyous adventure every time.  Thanks to Mark at BGI.  He is a wealth of knowledge on modern mountain bike technology.

Last work day of the year for structural repair is scheduled for Saturday April 28th to repair Teeter Totter Bridge.  This will be very similar to The Pier repair performed a couple weeks ago. A good turnout made that job go fast and easy.  Let's do the same for TT Bridge. With enough help, we can add a better entrance to the bridge so it's rideable for a broader range of skill levels.
Meet in the RNP parking lot at 9am. 
Tools needed:  staple guns for T50 staples (I have staples), cordless drills/impact drivers. 
What to bring: water, lunch, work gloves. 
Thank you.

Just a reminder of the trail work day Saturday April 7th. No rain in the forecast. Whoohoo!  Meet in the RNP parking lot 9am. I have the materials. Most of it is 10 foot long so man-power is needed to place it. 40F and mostly sunny. Sun adds 10F, so it will feel like 50F.  That will be great for manhandling lumber.
 Please bring staple guns (for T50 staples), cordless drills/impact, water, and lunch.  If you have a 4 wheel drive truck, please bring it (my van gets stuck on dewy grass on flat ground). Thank you in advance for your help.
