There are many opportunities to help build, repair and maintain your favorite trail this year.

If you’ve never been to a trail day, please join us!  While we do some serious work, we always have a lot of fun, which usually is followed up by some fun riding.

“There is something extra special when you ride on a trail that you helped build”  A Quote from a trail day volunteer.

Please go to the event calender for trail day info…see you on the trails!

In case you weren’t able to attend, here’s a quickie on some of the things we discussed at the meeting.  I’m not big on long formal meeting minutes, so if you need details, contact your favorite board member….better yet, come to the meeting.

New president Kevin Allen gave a recap of happenings in 2011

Yankee Springs Time Trial update – Registration has been open since mid-November. John Anderson is back with his sound system and announcing talents.  Dan Clark will design this year’s 2012 artwork for shirts, glasses and posters.  Youth Cycling will run our kid’s race event for 2012. Gault/RaceMgmt is back as our timing system operators.  As of January 9th we have over 100 pre-registered racers toward our cap of 700 for the 2012 race.  First committee meeting will be sometime in February.
