Massanutten Trail Work
Sep 1 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1743908012337961/

What: Massanutten Saturday Morning trail work to happen bi-weekly on Saturday’s through the spring and summer.

Where: Massanutten Western Slope Trails built by the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. We will be working on the Boundary Trail, the newest trail that connects VA 54 up to the pond.

When: Saturday, April 14 arrive at 8:50 for a 9 am start.

Why: Our volunteers built an amazing new trail yet again in 2017. As with all great things, it needs a little more love to make it even better. We will be working on patching some wet spots in an effort to make the trail more durable in all weather conditions.

Details: Western Slope trail work parties are held every other Saturday through the end of October! Bring water and sturdy boots/shoes. We’ll provide tools, gloves, etc. Hope to see you there!

Haircuts for Hillandale @ Hillandale Park
Sep 19 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Women on Wheels (hailing from Harrisonburg and surrounding areas) have adopted the Rocktown Trails at Hillandale Park. Our adoption means we are working to keep the trails open for all users and the trails need your help.

A very rainy summer has left us more than our usual high grass sections and “problem” puddles. Significant trail grooming and mud puddle repairs are overdue.

Grab your gloves, pruners, loppers and limber up your strong hands as we will tackle some muddy sections, cut back the tall grass, fight invasive plant species and keep sight lines open (so you can see around corners). There is truly something for everyone at Hillandale!

Please consider joining us at one of the following mini trail work sessions:

Wed. Sept. 12: 3-6 p.m.
Wed. Sept. 19: 9-12 p.m.
Sat. Sept. 22: 9-12 p.m.
Tues. Oct. 2: 4-7 p.m.
Thurs. Oct. 11: 4-7 p.m.

We will meet at the bottom of the Power Line Trail. This is not exclusively for women-only, we’ll take help from anyone who wants to join us!

MTB Festival Planning Meeting
Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

After the Doodle Poll, it looks like Wednesday, September 19th from 7-9pm is the time that will work the best for the most people. This will be the penultimate meeting, so please try and make it if you can; we’ll be getting most of our pre-festival tasks nailed down here. We’ll have one more meeting the week before the festival, but that will be mostly wrapping up merch for the raffle.

As with the previous meetings, I will send out an agenda and take minutes and post them.
