Stub Link’n’Pin Bridge Approach Trail Work (Buxton)
March 25, 2017 from 8:45 am - 2:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

This will mark the completion of a two-year project building 3 bridges at Stub Stewart.
On March 25th we will be making progress on building trail bridge transition approaches.
Scope of work:
Volunteers will be hauling rock and lumber down from staging location to use for trail work on bridge approaches.
Goal: 30 volunteers (split into several teams)
Due to space limitations of the project site we will need to limit the number of volunteers.
So please Signup (link below) to reserve your place at this momentous event.
Meet at LL Stub Stewart, Hill Top Day Use Area at 8:45 to sign-in.
At 9 am we ride our bikes to the project site deep in the MTB Area where tools and rock will be waiting.
We will work until 1:30 and then break for lunch.
Bonus for volunteering – hot meal on site, HUB beer, and a swag raffle.
Bring your mountain bike (or not) and be prepared to ride across the (mostly) finished bridges.
Note – bring proper ride gear cuz it’d be for video and photos taken during the celebration.
Also, we do need some volunteers to plan on carpooling to staging location and hiking the wheelbarrows to work site (about 3/4 mile hike). So if not up to work and then ride (consider your fitness level), we do have an easier option – ‘course it does involve pushing a wheelbarrow… so… Either way, your workout will be complete!
UPDATED 3/11/2017: met with Local Stewardship team at site today along with drainage expert, we anticipate additional April work party to finish trail work (so no ribbon cutting on 25th).
UPDATED 3/8/2017: due to heavy rains and very slick conditions the final work party to complete the Link n Pin Bridge at LL Stub Stewart Park has been rescheduled to March 25, 2017.
If you can attend this new date, please re-SIGN UP so we can get an accurate volunteer list
