Hi There!

We’re looking for volunteers for the national enduro event.  There will be three courses for the different classes at this enduro, which means we need a lot more volunteers than usual. If you’re around for the whole day, or just in the morning or afternoon please let us know because we have a job for you!

We take good care of our volunteers at this event and will provide coffee and breakfast in the morning.  There’s also lunch and a beer in the afternoon!

If you are interested in helping out as a timer, parking attendee, course marshal, course sweep, EMS, etc., let us know at wmbcmtb@gmail.com

Galbraith Lane Gate Closure

Direct access to the Tower Rd (RD 2000) is now closed and a reroute is still in the process of being built. The only gate open for public access is at end of Galbraith Ln (RD 1000). Last Call will be closed temporarily until the reroute has been completed and detour signs and mini maps have been set up at the base of the hill to help you navigate through the changes.
Galbraith is a really busy hill and all public traffic is now be funneled straight through Galbraith Ln. Please be courteous to the residents by keeping your pets on a leash, picking up your poo bags, and respecting people’s private properties.  This a shared space that we’re lucky to use. Thank you for your patience and for all of your support!

June 18th Trail Day Summary

Thank you to Trailhead Athletics and all the volunteers who showed up on a very traditional rainy and windy PNW summer day.

Around 28 folks helped brush and clear Wonderland, Whoopsie Woodle, Billy Jack, Keystone, Cedar Dust and Family Fun Center.

We also had a hard working crew on the new connector bridge at the base of the mountain.

THANK YOU volunteers and supporters, we can’t do this without YOU!

 

Trail Day on Saturday June 18th Sponsored by Trailhead Athletics

If you’re sick of stinging nettles or terrible sight lines on your favorite trail(s), then tune up that weedeater and/or leaf blower and help us out this coming Saturday morning at 9 AM.  This is a brushing day to clear plant growth over the trails. It’s going to be a “divide and conquer” approach. The central meeting spot will be at blue rock.   There will be someone available to direct you to where to go to help.  If you don’t have a weedeater, come anyway and we’ll pair you with someone who has one so that you can work as a team and rake debris off the trail.  Meet at the Galbraith Lane parking lot at 9am and we’ll shuttle you up.
