Trail Work @ La Costa Hills

Yesterday El Camino Bike Shop supported a day of trail work at the La Costa Hills. SDMBA and Richard J. are very active in the area and more than 60 people showed up for the 4 hours effort. We will be working on the very heavily used Switchbacks. The work included repair of drainage features to keep water OFF the trail and revegetation of shortcuts to keep people ON the trail.

After the work, the workers noshed on Chipotle burritos and we gave away swag including Continental Tires, Sockguy Socks, and PI Jerseys.

The day started at 8am with Rich and others explaining about trail efforts around San Diego County, how to use tools safely and what were the goals for the day. Rich had posters of lobbying efforts he and SDMBA are doing in Los Penasquitos Canyon and Calavera Lake area. Rich is trying to keep a major portion of Penasquitos open and create a Mtn Bike Skill Park in Calavara. GO RICH....

They had over 100 people coming out to work on the trails. It was great to see so many people. After the work, everyone sat down and got something to eat as Rich did a raffle and quickly gave away all the swag that we provided.

Go to SDMA to see when and where the next trail day occurs.
