Really enjoyed working with you all. Steveo, you're a WORKHORSE! Thanks for keeping me motivated.
Looking forward to next Saturday. Ray, I'll bring my 18v rigid cordless drill and saw with 3 fully charged batteries to the next work day.
Let's rally to get it done this coming weekend!!

Finished the bridge on top last night.
I broke down and bought the club a 18v cordless drill/radial saw combo.
Me and Ali donated $30 cash and the club paid for the rest ($120).

I was able to ride the trail all the way to where we stopped working then was able to ride the whole ridge out once I finished the bridge.
That is an AWESOME TRAIL!!! Man allota hard work has went into that and everyone deserves mad props for working on a great trail that is gonna give yet another reason for it being a top destination for Mountain Biking and keeping our reputation for making gnarly sick technical trails and of course why we are called the RIDGERIDERS!!!

Cool. Meet at the entrance to Rollercoaster at 8:30, Sunday. If anyone else is available, please join. We need some volunteers to remove the soft fern roots, near the turn around.

Fantastic day guys, that is one sweet ridge!!! I left my green seater out there, if Big Momma hasn't claimed it or any one picked it up let me know. We can get together for a ride and some thank you beverages afterwards! I'm off all week, let me know if anyone can ride.
