Trail Day Shovel Leaning!

Our trail crew of 14 cleaned up the BLT, re-enforced trail berms, rebuilt a bridge, planted ferns, repaired the JYD Dive, and consumed coffee, muffins and pizza! They volunteered 58.75 hours on an absolutely beautiful February day at SSBP that had some of us wishing we wore shorts.

Thank you Barry at South Surrey Cycles for feeding the crew.

Oh, in between the food, if you could share a bit of your time to groom some trails, rebuild a bridge or just stand there leaning on a shovel while others do all the work it'll be most appreciated. A rare opportunity to indulge!
