Send me a message when you do and I will see if I can come out and help. I might get out there for a ride today so I can mark the spots with the gps. I would attempt one tree myself but it mifht be better if there were at least two out there for a couple of them.

Is there a Facebook page for Bass River? I did not see one. This would be one more way to help peak interest in the old trail. There is all this talk about new trails but I think we need to improve the old along with creating new. Thoughts?

I think I'm going to head out there around 9 am Saturday. Ride a lap with the saw and then a few for fun. I can bring the second saw if anyone wants to help...

Might be interested in helping out. I'll let you know as we get closer to the weekend. Hey! Wait a minute! You're gonna be throwing the doc's no riding orders for x weeks out the window for your recovery??? How smart is that? :roll:

Just did a short spin around the West section tonight and wondered what was up with the ditch going in?

Any ideas of what that was. Sorry if it was covered in this topic before....

Are there any plans for some trail maintenance at Bass River. I would be more than happy to come out and help and sure I can round up a few others. It is getting immensly overgrown to the point you cant even see the trail in certain spots.

If there is a new spot for this feedback please let me know.

Thanks
