Join us tomorrow Saturday, May 18, 2013 for our monthly trail work party, which will be held at Blankets Creek. Please meet by the kiosk at 9am, wear close-toed shoes and bring water. The work party will be held until 1pm. Tools will be provided and lunch will be provided for volunteers. If you are allergic to bees, please bring an epi-pen along with you.
Blankets Creek trails will be closed Wed 5/22/13 - Fri 5/24/2013 for parking lot stone work and paving to be done.
Blankets Creek Trails will remain closed until after the XC race on Sat. 5/11/13. We expect to reopen them Sat. at 1pm. Rope Mill trails will remain closed until the park reopens. Probably next week at the earliest.
Bike Patrol supports all the trail users at Blankets Creek and Taylor Randahl Memorial bike trails. We Assist and Educate as well as support many events.
The CPR portion of Bike Patrol will take place on Tuesday May 14th with the Bike Patrol training taking place the next day. Both will be begin at 6:30pm at the Blankets Creek Club House. The Chapter pays for the CPR/First Aid training, Bike Patrol course and your first Patroller jersey. All we ask for in return is that you volunteer to patrol our trails on a regular basis and commit to volunteering for at least two of our races/events per year.
New Patrollers must complete both the CPR and Bike Patrol course then go onto the IMBA Web site and take a brief quiz. New and returning patrollers also must signup or renew their membership using the Bike Patroller - Woodstock Chapter designation. The BP membership dues are a little higher but are a fair tradeoff for the included training and jersey. Returning patrollers need CPR/First Aid recertification every two years so check your card to see if you're due.
VERY IMPORTANT! Please contact Mark Taylor, Bike Patrol Director if you plan to attend or have questions.
