Dueling Work Parties

In addition to our own monthly work party, our friends at the Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club are hosting a work party at Ragged Mountain. RTF has worked with the city over the past couple of years to restore and build trails around the new dam and expanded reservoir, and CAMBC is continuing that effort. RTF. . . CAMBC. . . one day, two great work parties. Take your pick and show your love for local trails on Valentine's day! Click here for details on the RTF Monthly Work Party; details on CAMBC's event are below.


What: First ever CAMBC/City of Cville workday at Ragged Mountain. Help punch in a critical section of trail that gets us closer to having the first loop around the reservoir. How good is that? At 9, we'll have a very short briefing on safety, project overview, and logistics.

When: Saturday, February 14, 9am- Noon, with a grill-out after

Where: Ragged Mountain dam parking lot. Note that this is not the old lower parking lot, but the upper, new one. If you aren't sure, keep going uphill past Camp Holiday Trails until the road ends at the dam. We need to haul people to the work site, which is about a mile away. If you have a 4WD vehicle, please bring it to help haul people from the parking lot.

Notable extra: For those who can stick around, CAMBC will be supplying a simple grill-out after we are done, at the parking area. Nice! Bring a plate so we don't generate a bunch of trash.

What to bring: If you have any trail tools (especially digging tools like rogue hoes, pulaski's, digging hoe, etc.) bring them. We don't know how many folks are planning to attend, so bring whatcha got. Wear hiking boots and prepare for cold. Bring work gloves.
