Expresso Trail Day: Sunday, October 6th

Date Oct 3, 2013

This Sunday, October 6th, 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 providing lunch and generally having a great time.

With Digger’s solo work, MEC’s TAP trail days, and our crew’s efforts, we’re almost to the bottom of the “bowling alley” section. Expresso is running great and we’re stoked to get some more gold laid down.

When: Sunday October 6th @ 8:30 am
Where: Upper Lynn School on Coleman St. Map HERE. At our meeting point we’ll have Coffee from Cowboy Coffee/Bean Around the World and some breakfast goodies.
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.

Story and photos from our earlier efforts 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.

We hope you can join us on the 6th of October 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…

That's awesome! I wish there were that many people interested in building trails here.

I'm no expert but wouldn't digging a hole like cause erosion issues?

Been awhile since I've wielded a maddock and BBQ tongs in the same day. Looking forward to getting crackin' on Expresso again.

A popular option has been to ride up, work for a couple of hours and ride down. Best of both worlds and trail karma.
