We will try the usual schedule, signup at 6:30 for the TT, we will start the TT after we complete the tour ride.

Last chance to contribute to the Bonneyville Mill trail

This Saturday, 5-25-13, is the last workday of the spring for Bonneyville Mill.  Help us finish off the South Farm loops this spring. The redline is almost there. We are working out of the Briar Patch parking lot, from 9AM to 1 PM. Looks like cool weather for this Saturday, I suggest long pants and long sleeve shirts. Lets end the spring with a big finish. If you live in one of the eastern counties and have not been to Bonneyville come out on Saturday. If you have helped build Bonneyville this spring, come out one last time and see how far we can take it.. Bring your bikes for some test riding afterwards. We need to start riding in the grass sections that we have scalped…
