Come Ride With Us!!
OCTOBER IS "SHOW SOME TRAIL LOVE" MONTH
Coldwater Mountain Trail System is a huge asset to the club, local area, and Alabama. It is heavily utilized and increasingly so, and brings in riders from outside the community who bring ever so important dollars into the community. The trail system has the potential to become the defining feature of the area to a growing number of visitors. Everyone in the community has a stake in its success, so if you have time, or can make time, come out and make your mark.
Every weekend in October we'll have trail workdays. I'm also stashing rakes along the trail for people who typically can't make workdays, as you're out riding you can stop and clear rocks from the treadpath. Place the rake at the spot you stop, preferably on the high side of the trail. Our organized work parties will continue to clean out drains and rebuild rollers and tabletops.
Remember to always ride with a folding saw ($20.00 from Local hardware store ), this will allow you to clear the corridor of vegetation and remove small trees and fallen limbs from the trail.

The weather has gotten warmer and spring is in the air!! That means it's time to crank the Pizza Rides back up! The Pizza Ride is a group road ride for ALL Levels. During the riding season, the ride LEAVES from the west parking lot of Golden Springs Baptist Church at 5:30 pm on Tuesday Evenings.
