The successful spring trail building season has wrapped (1,800+ volunteer hours and counting!) and now it's time to celebrate. So let's throw a big party! GORC and Bike Surgeon have teamed up and Bike Surgeon will be hosting the raffle party at their location in Shiloh, Illinois on May 30th, 2015. The celebration with food and beverages starts at 5pm and the winner of the Specialized Fatboy will be drawn around 6pm. GORC may have some swag on hand to raffle off as well. Again, we are very appreciative of the nice bike donation supplied by "The Surgeon."
We also would like one last group effort to beat down the honeysuckle beast-growth that enroaches the SIUE trails each summer. We are meeting at 1pm and trimming until 3:30pm. Most people will be weedwhacking and lopping. A small crew will go to the maintenance road washout and rework it and there are 3-4 small trees down that will need a sawyer/swamper team. It will probably be hot so we don't expect anyone to work themselves to exhaustion. Pre or post-ride at your discretion.
