WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Team, we have a BIG job to do and we need your help. The storm has trashed our trails and we need all hands on deck to clear them. They’re littered with debris (derailleur snaggers) and downed trees (cycle-stoppers). Our big fundraiser ride is next Sunday so we have a deadline to make.
HOW: Walk (do NOT ride) the trails, remove branches/debris, and report downed trees using the TrailForks app (instructions here). In your reports, we absolutely need descriptive details. Take photos with an object next to the tree, for size reference. A water bottle, backpack, rake, anything at all. This is very important. Please also report any clearing work you do as well, so we know what has been done. Use the same instructions above.
BRING a rake or leaf blower, gloves, water, and a snack. Absolutely DO NOT use a chainsaw. We have a team of certified and insured sawyers out there working. Leave the big stuff for them. Clear the trail of any limbs and twigs - anything that can get caught in a drivetrain. If you come upon workers with chainsaws, MAKE SURE they see you before you approach.
TRAILS: Prioritize these, as they will be used for the event: Blue Heron, Reedy Fork, Wild Turkey, Country Park, Owl’s Roost, Shady Side, Big Loop, and Little Loop. Check Twitter before you begin.
We will update the cleanup status on Twitter.
Here's a list of all work reports since the storm, and here's a detailed view.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
*If TrailForks crashes, try restarting/reinstalling the app. Or, post without photos, but we absolutely need GPS coordinates and a great description.
The holiday season is nearing and we’re wanting to focus on those in need. Food banks are seeing dangerously low numbers in our area and we’re going to lend a hand. We’ve designed a “Sweet Ugly Christmas Sweater Jersey” to sell and donate the proceeds to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
This is a pre-order only sale, so if you’re in…act fast! The store closes on the 29th, so we can have them in time for ugly sweater season. Thanks for your support!
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. THE ORDER WILL NOT BE PLACED WITH THE FACTORY UNTIL THE PRE-ORDER PERIOD CLOSES. JERSEYS AND GLOVES WILL SHIP OUT WITHIN 6-8 WEEKS AFTER THE PRE-ORDER CLOSES ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH.
Proceeds from the sale of gloves benefit the Piedmont Fat Tire Society. Proceeds from the sale of the Ugly Christmas Sweater Jersey benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.
Gloves purchased with the charity Ugly Christmas Sweater jersey will be distributed by PFTS. Gloves purchased individually will be shipped directly to you when they arrive.
