Trail work in Monticello-10/9/10

Here is a note from Jim Bell, he is looking for a crew to help clean up the Monticello trails this Saturday @ 8:30 a.m..

Ted and I rode Monticello last week and found it to be in really good shape, however it needs some help. The trailer really needs a walk through to mark the route and blow the leaves off the trail as well as some tall grass cut back in a few spots.

The trail is in better shape than ever, it just needs some attention.

I’d like to get a crew out there tomorrow for 3-4 hours and bring it back for fall riding. Would anyone have interest in meeting at 8:30 at Camp Manitou to help?

We will need weed whackers, back pack blowers, paint for permanent marking, rakes, shovels etc. I figure that we could all start at the trail head and walk and fix as we go. The entire trail is 12.5 miles so 3-4 hours should provide us plenty of time to complete.


Please forward to anyone else that may want to help.

Here is the address for GPS, YMCA Day Camp Manitou 9910 Briarwood Ave NE Monticello, MN 55362

A well deserved Thank You!

A belated Thank You to all of the MMCC members that helped out over the crazy cycling week to replace boards on the bridge, support the trails at the McCann's Trail Fundraiser, cut out last minute downfall, set up the race courses, run around town and procure donations, race, volunteer during race day, clean up after the races, grill, pour beer, serve hot dogs, serve pork wings, make chili, buy raffle tickets and do it with a smile!
