It’s November, it’s cold outside and there is snow on the ground…what better time to check out what is going on with trails in our area?!  Overland continues to work hard with our land agency partners to bring you more and better trails.  We help maintain and improve existing trails, we propose and help build new trails and we are working to connect our trails into systems.  If you are a trail user of any kind, check what we have been up to on our Advocacy page.  Even better, get involved.  The more support we have from the community, the more we can accomplish.

Season Finale

Our club’s final member meeting- the Season Finale- is Thursday October 26th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at New Belgium Brewing. We’ll celebrate our accomplishments, give some awards, share some food with friends, and end with the traditional bike pub crawl.  Costumes highly recommended… you may even win a prize if yours is the best!  Hope to see our members there.

Even though the season will “officially” be over, we will be continuing our 20+ year history of helping build and maintain the trails at Lory State Park with our annual Friends of Lory Trail Day, Saturday, October 28th from 8:30am to 3pm.  We are not sure yet which trails we will be working on, but we are sure that the work will help improve the trail experience at one of our favorite places to hold our events and ride our bikes. Lunch will be provided.  We will meet at the Soldier Canyon Group Area (https://goo.gl/maps/AWxAeN8B65A2) and head out to the work areas from there.  You can see more details on the calendar page (http://overlandmtb.org/event/friends-lory-trails-day/).  If you want to come out for one last day of giving back by digging in the dirt, please sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040b4aa5ae2fa64-trail.
