Upcoming 2011 Trail Maintenance Project
Our 2011 trail work plans are
set and we are going to host only two fall trail maintenance projects this
season. Below is
information regarding the next upcoming trail maintenance project.
As always, we look for
support from the riding community to help us complete each project. Anyone
is welcomed to lend a hand and give back to the community.
Volunteers under the age of
18 must be accompanied with a parent or legal guardian. All volunteers will
be required to sign a Trail Maintenance Project Liability Waiver Release

Project Weather/Cancellation Notice:
Dieselbikes works regardless
the weather conditions are rainy or sunny. If inclement weather such as but
not limited to severe lighting, heavy rain, nor'easters and or snow, we will
then post a cancellation notice one day prior on the homepage of our
Estimated Project Time:
We accept this project to
take 4-5 hours to complete. If you bring your bike, you can be the first to
ride the new trail we will be installing! We may have a group ride after the
trail day, but this is weather and or time dependent.
What to Bring:
Bring your own bug spray,
food, water, pair of work gloves and eye protection. Weather is always
questionable, so dress appropriately. Bring your bike is encouraged but
always optional. Please remember, at this point in time Dieselbikes does not
have the funds to provide lunch. It is suggested you bring your own food,
snacks water and/or drink.
What WE are going to do:
There is a ton of work and we
will need groups of people to armor sections of the trail thread and dig a
long trench for water run off. This will be a labor intensive day (5-6
hours) and tools will be provided for this work day. If you have your own
personal tools you rather work with, feel free to bring them, but you are
responsible for your own property.
Please e-mail Frank Diesel (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need further information.
