This past Saturday I had a great group of people show up to help me finish roughing in the rest of the pump track, getting it rideable and off to a
great start for this new section. It is still a work in progress, but we will be working on it over the next few weekends to make it better and with
improvements to the older section. I want to give a BIG Thank You out to the following people that helped me and got so much done in a short time !
Matt Dughi and Mike Faulk of the Novi Tree Farm pump track fame and beyond ! You were the force, expert tech/design assistance, get it done
attitude that we needed to knock this out. It was so cool working with you guys on what turned out to be an almost 12 hour day working hard/playing hard.
Rich Faunce for showing up right on time and did an amazing amount of work right up until the end of the day when even us younger guys took a break !
Mike Higgs and Evan Vollick-Offer from Sun & Snow Sports in downtown Plymouth showed up to make a contribution. Thank you so much guys !
Kevin ? (hearing impaired guy) who just showed up out of the blue and offered to grab a shovel and help out for a good chunk of the afternoon. Nice guy.
To my good friends Travis Roth and Tommy Maceri for coming out to help dig, talk bikes and work together on a beautiful day. We had great weather !
The first riders to ride it and try it out was a family of Dad, son and daughter (small) on bikes and a lab on a leash. They played on it a different times.
It was so cool to see a Dad stop and take the opportunity to share that moment with his "just starting out" kids. The other first riders were Mike & Matt,
Travis and last, but not least to the party - MIke Robertson brought his Kona Process and gave it a whirl.
We had a lot of help from the BobCat Skidsteer 175 from Garden City Rental (check them out, they offer good rates with great service !!) 2 thumbs up !
The Gatorade was going down easy, the chocolate chip cookies tasted great, the Little Caesar's deep dish pizzas were great as were the "refreshments".
Stop by the pump track in the next few weeks and check it out !
