So please, join us, for a fun paced ride on what is supposed to be a very nice evening. Post up if you think you will show.
EDIT: Johnny Utah most likely won't be there on the advice of medical professionals. I still plan to ride.

I've volunteered at this race several times in the past and raced it a few times. I know some MBMers do it too. I got this message from the promoter looking for volunteers, so thought I'd post it here in case anyone likes to help out in exchange for free race entries. It's the same weekend as the club meeting, though there is work being done on Saturday, and I've helped on Fridays before too, so I know there's plenty to do there. It's a big race getting even bigger. It's good for our sport whether we like it or not. I have the spreadsheet he references and can send it to you if you want to see what jobs are available.
Nothing in Michaux SF was harmed or helped by this post
Dear Previous Helper,
Thanks for helping with our Greenbrier MTB race and Junior Olympic race in years past. We will be doing it again this year on Sunday Apr 25, and the race will also now be the first race in a new 4-race Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship, so lots of racers will be coming! We could really use your help. Plus, any friends, family, or acquaintances that you can invite to help will be greatly appreciated as well!
I've attached the current volunteer position list so you can see the specifics.

I hope this is my last road ride for a bit, but it was fun. 27 miles with 3400 feet of climbing. It included Harmburg Road and Coxey Brown. I think Coxey is tougher than either Harp Hill or Hamburg. Those roads were built for cars. Coxey is built for ox carts.

I was able to get in some XC-sking this weekend, as well as several road rides on Monday-Wednesday. In between all of this, I was also able to start work on a custom fencing project that I had planned over the winter. This was taken from the overlook on Tower road, above Cowan's Gap
The snow pack was about 1-2 feet, down from 3-4 feet three weeks ago.
Red Extra Swix and Jack Rabbit Klister worked their charm on this soft snow.
The start of the fencing project. The pile of Yew hedge was about 1/3 of what was cut, and pulled up, for the start of the fencing that will be replacing it.
In between, I was able to enjoy the mornings for several delightful road rides around the Fayetteville/Shippensburg/Orrstown area.
