Jefferson Trails Coalition work party tomorrow!

Fellow cyclists of Port Townsend, we all ride and know of the Jefferson Trails Coalition (JTC). Here is a personal invitation to donate your hard work and time!

OK -- we're ready to kick off our summer season of trail building and maintenance! Y'all come!

The Douglas Way portion of the Larry Scott Trail has been widened and re-graded and is ready for gravel. So this Saturday (5/22) we will be spreading, leveling, and raking gravel on that section. This will bring the trail up to near the standards of the finished portions of the rest of the LSMT. The County will begin work on the trail immediately to the west and north of this piece, so our goal is to have our work blend nicely with their finished product.

Work will begin at 9:00 AM -- stay as long as you can. We will be pulling back some of the balls of vegetation left at the edges of the freshly graded trail and spreading out the topping material. Bring gloves, shovels, rakes, hoes, McLeods, etc. We'll also need a few wheelbarrows.

Lunch will be provided for those who stay 'til noon. Water will be available, but bring any other drink you like.

Travel there on your bike!! Parking is limited -- park next to the trail at the entrance to Douglas Way, off of S. Discovery Rd. There is NO PARKING available anywhere else further along Douglas Way or on Green Way. This is a private road. Please respect the local residents' use of their road. We need their support for the ongoing use and maintenance of the trail. Thanks. See you there!

Cheers, Jeff

P.S. If you are worried about not having anyone you know there, bring a friend. Better yet introduce yourself and tell them that Nicole and Pete sent you!
