Russian Lakes Trail Work

Join members of the Arctic Bicycle Club & Singletrack Advocates on Saturday, June 9 for a fun early season Mountain Bike Ride down Russian Lakes trail.

We will be riding approximately 30 miles, most of which will be down Russian Lakes trail.

This year we will again be performing trail clearing of the trail to make this trail clear for a great straight-through riding adventure.

Participation in the trail maintenance is not required; but you are encouraged to bring a small collapsible hand saw, hatchet, or tool you can 'safely' ride with and that you can use. We hope to have at least one chain saw in a B.O.B. trailer as well for the really large trees that are sure to be present.

Plans are to meet at Carrs Huffman at 8 a.m. for the carpool or at 10 a.m. at the Post Office intersection of Snug Harbor Road and Mile 48 of th Sterling Highway. We will then shuttle the bikes and riders to the trail head and begin from there.

Helmets are required, and this is considered an Advanced Mountain Bike ride. The trail maintenance occurring will add several additional hours over the standard traverse time for this trail, and this area also has very heavy bear activity. Riders should plan for these conditions accordingly.

Please check the ABC Touring Division's Hot Line the week of the ride 566-0177 Option 3, or e-mail Christopher Souser for any updates.
