Philly Pumptrack - Mulch and Ride

This weekend we will be filling in the rain gardens with root mulch. I know some of you are thinking "thank goodness for a light weight project!" I know I am.

If you have a wheelbarrow, please bring it with you to the workday. We can definitely put it to use this weekend.

The weather for Saturday is 71 and sunny, so bring your bike and check out the beginner track.

We will also be giving lessons on proper track maintenance at the beginner track. You will be surprised to see how easy it is.

We will also be shaping, tamping and a number of smaller miscellaneous projects as we close in on completion. Novices and kids are welcome. We also have 9 bikes on site for loan (onsite only), thank you to a generous donation from SE Bikes. Our friends at Fuji Bikes gave a generous donation of 20 more helmets so we now have a total of 27.

As always, we will have snacks, beverages, gloves, tools, etc. But feel free to bring yours if you prefer.

We will be out working both Saturday and Sunday starting at 10:00 AM, and stay until about 4, and taking riding breaks throughout the day.

The address is 53rd and Parkside Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 and here is a link to a map:

Heavy rain will cancel the workday. If you have any questions, please call Kenn at 610.659.4430.

Stop by if you are available for 30 minutes or all day.

See you Saturday! (or Sunday)
