The BMTBA seeks volunteers tomorrow, so please show up if you have any interest! If you're especially zealous, the crew will start at 7 am, so you need not wait until the group picture at 9. ...

Reminder. Saturday 9AM at the trail for a Group photo, then we build at Curt's house the ramps & platforms for Trail Source to install on site. Below is Hunter and Warren…the 'A-TEAM'.

For curious minds: yes, after pedaling for six straight hours on Crazy Day, without even a single dismount, Caleb still lives! He totaled 74.37 miles; Logan submitted the winning guess of 75 miles.

And in case anyone forgot, this was primarily about raising funds for Safety Town. Those funds totaled $95.92. Great thanks to all who gave!

Brookings just might be the last place Safety Town still exists. Let's keep it alive!

On the Efficiency and Maintenance of Bicycles

January 20, 2017 | 0 Comments
