Eight hard- working souls got up early and headed out to the National Forest at 8 AM Sunday morning. We set out to finish up the trial work that was started during the SVBC Mountain Bike Festival several weeks ago on Narrowback mountain. With the leaves in peak color and the absence of forecasted rain it made for a beautiful morning in the woods!
Volunteer trail work is incredibly important to the bicycle club. In order to get the HUGE grants from the US government to fund trail construction and restoration, the bicycle club must front 20-40% of the total dollars spent on the projects, which is typically tens of thousand of dollars! Where our trail work comes into play is that for each VOLUNTEER hour put on the ground, SVBC is credited $22 towards their portion of the bill! In short, trail work helps the bicycle club afford HUGE grants from the US government to build sweet Mountain bike trail!
