Memorial day we had our first TT of the season that turned out to be a huge success. I would have never expected 30 riders to show up just to ride for fun. It was a great showing of how many people just love to ride the trails. The next one that we are doing is the Monday after the WEMS race and Single speed championship. I hope we get a bunch of people again. Especially those that are putting in so much work to help make the race successful.
Speaking of successful... It seems hard to believe that after starting the seventh season of trail "sessions" we would still have so many people coming out to help. I like to believe it is because of the area we have created as a group. I call it a session because although it is a dirty job at times work is such a dirty word and session sounds more like we are just spending some time. We have had some great crews out of late and it is impressive to see how hard these people work. We live and die by our volunteers and as the system grows we need to grow. Thanks to everyone that comes out and puts in a night or two during the year. It really makes a difference.
