For SWAMP maintained mountain bike trails
How can You Volunteer Your Time?
Club member or not, schedule a Saturday in the next few weeks to volunteer for trail work (See Calendar for dates and times) by contacting Trails at swampclub dot org. Let them know which day and park you will join SWAMP in maintaining these trails. You'll learn some trail maintenance techniques, get some exercise in the fresh air, chat with people that you only nod to on ride days, and contribute to the sport that you love. No experience necessary, all tools are provided and any parking fees are waived for those who send early RSVP's.
Optional: Bring gloves, hydration (water is perfect), snacks, your favorite trimming tool (if you repfer your own) and insect repellant.
Those who are able to volunteer 20 hours or more during the year are eligible for SWAMP awards given out during the December Holiday meeting. (Our year runs from the Alafia Fat Tire Festival to the weekend before the next Alafia FTF)
Remember, these are public trails. There are no "Trail Gnomes"! The Park Rangers do not maintain these Off Road Trails...we do. How well would our bikes function without maintenance???? The trails need maintenance too!
So, please come out and help....
