27 July 2007 - 11:35A Night at the Trailhead
Last night we set up the tent at the tunnel leading up to the Perry Hill trail network.
We have a big trail day planned for this Sunday, where we have a large reroute planned on one of the main loops. Thursday is by far the busiest night on the trails, and we wanted to make our presence known. I counted at least 60 riders out there last night. That’s a lot of traffic.
The goal was to try and rope in a few volunteers with some hotdogs and beer (I mean, recovery drinks), and of course it was a golden opportunity to get some folks hooked on the big wheels.
We had numerous parking lot test rides, and two trail demos.
While we won’t know how successful our even was until Sunday, all in all, I think the event was a hit. There is an interesting cross section of riders that use the Perry Hill trails, coming from all over. It was great to meet some of these folks, some of whom are very active within their own cycling community.
The fundraising continues for the Harpoon Point to Point.
I have so far raised $185, but still have a way to go to reach my goal of $500.
