On February 10th REMBA had the pleasure of hosting some trail repair work at Pacific Union College Demonstration and Experimental Forest. REMBA, along with the St. Helena Thunderbirds High School Mountain Bike Team, PUC management and community volunteers were able to restore and reconnect singletracks which were covered in debris during the fire break project where masticating machines were brought in to create a critical fire break for the forest and the town of Angwin. A crew of 30 kids and adults went into the singletracks area in “the maze” and along the west side of Ridge Road in the north end of the PUC trail network. The connections between those singletracks and ridge road were covered by masticator debris and the volunteer crews worked to clear/restore the connections and make those trails rideable again. Volunteers worked up a sweat all morning until lunchtime where REMBA provided lunch and smiles to a hard-working crew.
Thank you, St. Helena Thunderbirds for your enthusiastic work on the trails you love to ride. Your team exemplifies trail stewardship and we’re stoked to be a part that stewardship with you.
Thank you, Peter Lecourt, PUC Forest Manager for encouraging our youth to get involved in their community and being a great partner with REMBA. (photo credit: Briana Marie Photography, St. Helena Thunderbirds mountain bike team, Peter Lecourt and Tony Cale)
