It’s the time of year where many of the trails we ride get overgrown with blackberries, stinging nettle, ferns, and other foliage. The FVMBA trail crew along with some dedicated volunteers have been keeping busy keeping the greenery trimmed but they need some help.
From July 3rd to
July 31st August 15th we’re running a challenge to help keep the trails clear. We’ve identified priority trails in each of the trail networks that most need help. For each trail you clear, you get an entry to win one of three FVMBA prize packs, to be drawn at the end of the month.
*Loppers, clippers, machetes, hedge trimmers etc all can get the job done. If you need trimming gear, the FVMBA has a limited selection of equipment to loan out. Get in touch with our Ops Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll connect you to a local trail rep.
Shout-out to SORCA for the idea and inspiring us!
