We just wanted to remind folks that every Tuesday evening (unless otherwise noted) that the Woolly Trails are open we host a group ride that leaves the trailhead at 6:30. As we move from summer to fall we may move the start time up to account for sunset, but for now 6:30 gives folks coming from work a few extra minutes to get to the trails.
The first lap is always no drop. After that it is a go at your own pace. I know some folks like to get a little earlier start. I would encourage you to get a warm-up in and then loop back to the trailhead at 6:30 to join the fun. Group rides are a great way to get some social time and improve your biking skills no matter your skill level.
So hopefully we will see you at the trailhead this Tuesday at 6:30!

Thursday evening a handful of Woolly volunteers headed out to do some trail fixes and improvements in Big Oak.
First up was to shore up the bridge feature. Its built on top of a log and some of the boards were working loose. It's been reinforced and should be good to go for a while.
Next was the log skinny in the middle. Sadly, there was no saving that rotted mess. It just got rolled off into the woods.
But we wanted more tech too, so we built a new log skinny just before bridge. This one is pretty skinny, but it is also nice and close to the ground. As you can see in the first picture we even got Chuck Norris to test it out for us. OK, maybe that is just Dirt Boss Jason, but he still has a nice kick going.
There was also some general maintenance activities going on with some face slapper trimming and leaf blowing.
Going forward there are discussions of adding some additional technical features in the center of Big Oak and creating a little tech loop for folks to session in the woods.
If you are interested in helping with trail projects and maintenance get in touch with us via Facebook and we will get you in the loop.
