Wow, a big Thank You! to everyone who showed up at our SIUE workday this past weekend. Forty-nine (49!) people showed up and we completed the new section of trail...yes completed. It was a total of 0.3 miles of trail, while not a lot, it is still something.
Big Thanks to The Cyclery for providing lunch! Please stop by and tell them thanks. Also, thanks for to the Bike Surgeon for providing our swag give aways for the day and showing up to work on the trail. Please go in and thank them for their time and swag.
We are continueing our trail building in the new area on Jan. 21st. GORC hopes to see you all out there again.
Thank you very much for taking the time to help make the SIUE trail system bigger and better.
Here are a few photos from the workday;

Maplewood has sent one of their paid staff to the last three workdays - this is huge! Jessica is working some benchcut.

Post-workday swag giveaway. It was a bit too wet to ride after the hard work so some of us went to the Global Brewery in Edwardsville.
