Road and Mountain BikingIt’s Saturday morning, and there are two work parties in Post Canyon. 1) meet at Binn’s Hill Staging Area at 9am for a few hours to repair Borderline following logging. Donuts and coffee will be provided. 2) Meet at Family Man at 9:30 for a few hours of work (unclear where). That’s followed by “refreshments”, which I assume means beer. Other news… some elevations likely have freeze-thaw mud. Please don’t ride through those areas, or you will do significant trail damage. That said, if you go up high, you’ll likely find perfect dirt as the Inversion as been in place for a few days.
Upcoming EventsAs mentioned in the biking section, there’s a work party meeting at Binn’s Hill Staging Area at 9am Saturday, and another meeting at 9:30am at Family Man. The Klickitat 5k, half, and marathon runs today. You can volunteer at the Rebuild-it Center from 9am to noon today and every Saturday. There’s a teen meetup, a “sketchbook social” at Dog River Coffee from 2pm to 4pm.
