No Meeting, but TRAIL WORK!!

Contrary to what was written in the meeting minutes this month, we will not be having a meeting to discuss finalization of the Time Trials tommorrow night. Things are pretty well settled in and ready to go. The only thing that needs to be done is for the trails to be in perfect shape for the race. Looks like rain but we will keep our fingers crossed. If you are looking for some cleaning, Van Pennen needs it. Dunnings is taken care of and will be finished by Wednesday. As far as the course goes, we will not be going down Old Randy's as we had planned to, so no need to take your chances riding down it. Direct course questions to Deke at Oneota River Cycles or just post a comment and somebody will let you know. That is about it. Get out and ride!

We will begin timing at 6:30 and we will end whenever people want to stop riding. The location is on top of Palisades Park at the overlook.

See you tonight.

Trail Work Day. Sat 1 p.m Palisades

Howdy all. We are going to have a work day this Saturday, April 3rd at 1 p.m. We will meet at the entrance of Palisades Park, to work on the reroute at the top of Captains. There is not a lot of dirtwork that needs to be done, mostly nipping and raking. If we can get a few people to show, it should only take a couple of hours.
