    TRAILWORK AT NOBLE CANYON – SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12 @8:30 A.M.

    Join the San Diego Mountain Biking Association for trailwork at Noble Canyon Saturday the 12th! We will be removing the brush that has sprung up from the summer rains. Meet at 8:30 a.m. at the upper trailhead parking lot at Penny Pines, we will carpool to near the work location.

    Bring the usual: water, sturdy shoes, gloves, eye protection and a snack. All tools and training will be provided. We'll work till 1:00 p.m., raffle off some schwag Courtesy of Santa Cruz and Turner Bikes, then go for a ride.

    Please R.S.V.P. to mark@sdmba.com so we have an idea how many tools will be required.

    Directions: I-8 East past Pine Valley to Sunrise Highway (S1) then to Penny Pines at mile marker 27.3 on Sunrise Highway.

    I'm in need of a tire the last ride the tube popped and blew a hole in the side wall. I can definatly use a Maxxis if there 2.5 or bigger. Let me know if you can save me the trouble of picking 1 up.

    Question can we build bridges crossing the water hazzards? No skinnies in the trees or ramps just ways to cross the streams a few inches above the water. Belive it or not I'm a bridge builder, so I think I could handle the task. I hate getting my steel bikes wet.

    Wow you guy's who worked on Noble yesterday, did a great job!! Wikitypooshlag both had to work yesterday, but we went out there today and rode/hiked up to the top, then rode down.
    It was funny, cause all the XC guy's gave us weird looks and asked us which direction we were going and we said up! They said we're crazy for pedaling and hiking up to the top on DH bikes. We were like why? XC guys do it all the time! lol

    But the trail was great, nicely groomed, very flowy in the smooth part's and nice job over all.

    Thanks to all volunteers that showed up! We had 26 vols put in about 4 1/2 hours of cutting brush and digging waterbars at the switchbacks. Afterward SDMBA rewarded everyone with schwag from Santa Cruz, 661, Accel Gel and Maxxis tires from BMXman's private reserve (be sure and czech out his ebay deals), then we went for a ride down Noble.

    More trailwork and schwag in 2006!
