MBoSC SDSF Flow Trail Update: Trail Head Cyclery 1/25 volunteer work day recap; Mike’s Bikes 2/15 work day open for registration
MBoSC/Trail Head Cyclery SDSF Flow Trail Volunteer Work Day Recap
Our biggest day yet, an impressive 73 volunteers showed up to work on the flow trail at Soquel Demonstration State Forest (SDSF) this past Sunday, January 25. Kicking off the day with coffee and breakfast treats provided by Whole Foods, nine crews pitched in on the soon-to-be-completed Specialized Bicycles-sponsored segment 2 and the brand new Ibis Cycles-sponsored segment 1. Volunteers fine tuned segment 2, tweaking berms and jumps, renaturalizing the trail corridor and testing features. Finish work was completed on part of segment 1 as well.
Trail Head Cyclery of San Jose provided hearty lunches, post-workday refreshments, and a huge array of raffle items. Summit Store threw in their usual generous support by way of a deep discount on lunch, while Ninkasi Brewing rewarded trail builders with well-earned cold beverages at the end of the day. Adventure Sports Journal again hosted the volunteer raffle, offering goodies such as a gift certificate to the Sierra Club’s Clair Tappaan Lodge, ski lift tickets, a Platypus portable water filtration system, Crazy Creek camp chairs and more.
Many thanks to the volunteers and sponsors who came together for Sunday’s productive work event, and much appreciation to land manager California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) for partnering with us for this extensive project.
