El Prieto Trail Work

We don't just ride our bikes - we also help rebuild the trails that we ride on. Trail work is an important part of being a mountain biker. Without trail work, well, there wouldn't be any trails!

On January 22nd and 29th, members of the St. Francis mountain bike team helped CORBA and our teammate, Kennan Koch, repair a section of the El Prieto trail that was erroding into the creek. This was an ambitious Eagle Scout project that Keenan had undertaken.

12 hours of hard work, a little poison oak, and a lot of pizzas later - and the new trail looks GREAT!
