Do you like to ride your Mountain bike in the wash. If so, just go for a ride and ignore this(Oh, I’ll join you, sand is good). However, for the majority of you, there is a major trail improvement that is going to make the Starr Pass Area even better.
If you have ever ridden over the west side of Starr Pass and come back through Yetman Wash you have likely had the thought “why the hell is there not single track here and why am I riding in 3 inches of sand”?
Great news!!! Yetman Wash Trail Work Days are coming up to put in that mush anticipated Yetman Reroute! Sonoran Desert Mountain Bikes (SDMB) is inviting people for upcoming work days in November, December, and January. SDMB will provide all the tools needed, but please come dressed for a day outside, bring work gloves, and make sure to bring water and snacks. They will provide lunch for after the work days. The dates of the work days are:
Sunday 11/17/13, Saturday 11/30/13, Sunday 12/15/13, Saturday 1/4/13
All work events will run from 8:00am to 12:30pm with lunch following. Meet at the Sarasota Trailhead off of Kinney Rd and hike in from there. Parking is limited so we encourage you to carpool. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or the Facebook Event by the Wendesday prior to the work day to make sure they have lunch for you.
If you have never participated in a trail building day it is worth the effort. You will meet some other like minded riders, get food, and remember every time you ride the trail the section “YOU” made happen.
New trails do come at a cost and in order to fund the Yetman Trail SDMB has an upcoming event. It includes Beer!!! Yetman Wash Pint Night at Borderlands Brewing Co. on November 13th for the SDMB Yetman Wash Re-Route Pint Night Fundraiser. Time is 5-8pm. $20 will get you an awesome SDMB pint glass and two beer tickets. There is going to be a food truck, live music, and a lot of fun. We’ll also have some SDMB schwag like t-shirts, socks, stickers, etc. Additional beer tickets are $5. If you haven’t already, please “like” SDMB on Facebook and RSVP for the event there. If you can’t be there and would still like to help out, they welcome you to one of the trail work days (see above) or you can just throw a few bucks to the cause.
