Last Minute Reminder: COTA Biketoberfest tomorrow

If you're like me and not able to help with the trailwork (I have kids' soccer games on Saturday), then try to make it to the party and re-up your membership. -hoc

This is from Chris @ COTA:

Biketoberfest - our big annual trailwork day is this Saturday the 20th.

Meet at: 8AM Saturday 20th - Mt. Bachelor's Park and Ride on the corner of Simpson and Columbia Avenues.

Bring: Yourself and your riding buddies. A hydration pack with water and a few snacks. Eye protection (riding glasses), gloves and sturdy footwear.

Tools: COTA will provide the bulk of the tools. If you have your own trail work tool bring it.

Party! COTA will host a post-work party at the park and ride with a BBQ and beverages for all the workers. The plan is to have all crews back at the Park and Ride by 2pm for the festivities.

Signups: COTA has a variety of trail projects lined up for the day. Saturday morning you will be given the option to choose what you would like to work on for the day. Here's a partial list of what we're hoping to accomplish-

Farewell: tread repair - hike in up to a mile from Tumalo Falls TH
Mrazek: trail realignment and tread repair. Short hike.
South Fork: tread repair - hike up to a mile from Tumalo Falls TH
Upper Whoops: re-alignment and tread repair - 1/2 mile hike in.
Lower Whoops: tread repair.
Storm King: a variety of projects including brush work. Driving to multiple work sites.
Ben's Trail: re-alignment of user-built go-arounds.
Slalom Play Loop: Buffing out this awesome zone.
The Lair: Work continues on Oregon's newest freeride zone!
Flagline: tread repair and new features. This will require bikes. Please send an email to: lissettenz(at) to confirm a place with this crew. This crew is only for those who are dedicated - expect bad weather, hard work, and a possibly a longer day.

Looking forward to another productive day putting our trails back together for the winter. See you there.
