This Sunday, April 28th, come on out and get dirty in the woods. We’ll have swag from the NSMB Store, RockShox, and Dissent Labs – and of course we’ll be serving burgers at lunch and generally having a great time.

This is our second trail day of the year… story and photos from our first effort can be found HERE. For a great visual recap of last year’s work, check out Jerry Willows’ photo set HERE and another set from Morgan Taylor and Jerry Willows HERE.

When: Sunday April 28th @ 8:30 am
Where: Upper Lynn School on Coleman St. Map HERE.
What to bring: It would be a good idea to bring some water to drink. If you’d like to bring tools you may but we’ll have access to as many as we need as well.
Lunch: Lunch will be provided. Let us know if you are coming and have special meal requirements. We aim to please.
Experience necessary: None. If you are new to trail work we’ll have lots of experienced builders there keen to show you the ropes.
Time commitment: That is up to you. If you’d like to ride up to meet us and work for a few hours part way through the day we’d be stoked to see you. If you can stay for the whole trail day great. We generally wrap before 3:00.

We hope you can join us on the 28th of April for some digging, hauling, water diverting, and of course lunch and good times. No experience is necessary and you might just walk away with something other than the guaranteed trail karma. Questions or comments welcome below…

  • mthomaslee

    Gah. Of course I move to North Van on the 1st of May. Is there another upcoming day relatively soon to get some trail karma in?

  • SubPlop

    There seems to be tons of trail days happening, all the time. Check the Forum.

    I’d recommend coming out this day for sure with Digger being there and last time Willows as well, lots of knowledge being passed around and good vibe. And, of course free swag. Do it!
