Event description

Thank you for your interest. We have reached maximum capacity for this event.

Sunday April 7th, Sandy Ridge Trail Work

Spring is finally here and it’s time to get back the trails back in shape after the late winter snowfall. We’ll be repairing tread, filling holes, clearing drains, raking off fallen leaves, and whatever else needs doing to get the trails ready to ride!

Loam Coffee will be on-site prior to sign in/safety meeting to fuel us up for the day.

A BIG THANKS to NWTA sponsor Cyclepath PDX who will be  hosting a post event BBQ & providing SWAG for the raffle. Beer (for age appropriate volunteers) will be generously provided by Mt. Tabor Brewing

Work Party Logistics:

Who: Newbies and non-members are welcome; tools are provided. Hardy kids who don’t mind potentially bad weather are invited as we often have a good group of them and will find some tasks for them to work on together.

When: 9:00am – 2:00pm Sunday, April 7th, 2019 

Where: Meet at the Sandy Ridge Trailhead Parking lot. https://goo.gl/maps/FuhqPAy87NK2

What to expect: We will meet at the parking lot at 9:00am, sign waivers, break up into smaller groups and hand out tools for the various maintenance areas identified and be heading out to start working by 9:30. Groups will carpool up to their assigned area with tools. You should expect to work rain or shine for approximately 4 hours. Weather can be variable this time of year so check the forecast and dress accordingly.

What to bring: Water, snacks, and any other clothing/protection you’d want when doing landscaping type work (digging, raking, cutting/sawing, etc). Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own if you’ve got a favorite.

What to wear:

  • Boots
  • Sturdy work gloves (more than one pair is a good idea)
  • A light, long sleeved shirt
  • Rain gear as appropriate for the weather
  • Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)
  • A hard hat or your bike helmet if you don’t have one
