TK Lawless Trail Workday 6-21-14

TK Lawless is getting very green and it is time for a trimming. We will bring the three walk behind string trimmers and the two sickle bar trimmers. We also have snips and corona saws for the face whackers.

Come give us a hand so we can knock this out quickly. We will have water, gloves, bug spray and NIMBA Dogs for lunch. I will be at the parking lot at 8:00AM and we will work through Noon. If you can’t get there by 8:00AM, don’t worry, I will stay with the tools until after 9:00AM.

Bonneyville Trail Grand Opening Sunday June 22
The trail is done, now lets celebrate and have some fun.  The festivities start at 11AM at the One Room School House, Bonneyville Mill Park, Bristol IN.  Bring your bike for a ride, we will have the grills going for lunch.

Group Rides
We have several group rides this summer.

 Tuesday nights at Potato Creek – We meet at the Peppermint Hill parking lot at 6:30PM.  This a no drop ride.  We end up with several groups, riding at different speeds.  Deb Kulwicki is the leader and it is perfect for beginners.

Wednesday  night midweek time trial – We rotate between the various NIMBA trails spending two weeks in a row at each trail. Most improved time between the two weeks gets a Hacienda gift card.  You don’t have to be fast to have fun.  You do have to be a current NIMBA member to participate.  Check out the webpage for current ride location.

Thursday nights at Bendix Woods – New for June! Megan Clark is leading this ride.  We meet at the Deneve Shelter Parking lot at 6:00PM and will ride the beginner loop.  This is a no drop ride and all skill levels are welcome.

Workdays
Things are starting to grow and need to be cut and we have the reroute of the downhill rut at Potato Creek starting this month.  Watch the NIMBA Facebook page or the webpage for the updated schedule.  If you race in the NIMBA series, you can pickup a half price coupon for doing 4 hours of volunteer work with NIMBA.  We saw quite a few half price racers at Potato Creek Cross Country race last weekend.

NIMBA Swag
We have two different sock colors, NIMBA Green and the traditional Black/Grey each at $12.  We also have NIMBA limited edition Potato Creek Trail shirts for $20.  This year we also have the NIMBAhoodies, with the NIMBA logo embroidered on the chest.  You can order a variety of colors and sizes for $40.  All swag items are available at NIMBA events and rides.
