In celebration of the early spring forecast, The Bike Stop Warrenton is hosting the first annual Grouchy Groundhog Gravel Grinder!
This will be a fun event to help get folks outside and gather for a good time.
Ride will begin and end at the Warrenton Bike Stop. The route is mixed surface over 30-ish miles
Start time is scheduled for High noon. Sunday February 7, 2016
This will be a non-supported ride and you must be able to take care of yourself. All roads are open to traffic. Some roads will be high volume and high traffic. Please be careful and follow all rules of the road.
Since it’s obvious from Phil, and we won’t be having 6 more weeks of winter, for entry, please bring a 6pk of your favorite beverage to share. If you don’t bring a 6pk of your favorite beverage to share, come dressed as a Grouchy Groundhog. B.O.B. will be the judge if one is needed.
Pass along to join the fun!

With the big melt underway, our snow cover will quickly be replaced with mud. Let’s give the trails and parking area at CAMBO a chance to dry out before we start riding and/or parking there. I think it will be mid-week at the earliest before we see the ground start to firm up enough to park and/or ride from the farm. Thanks.

Just like last year, we are not going to clear leaves from the trail at Burke Farm. As demonstrated in the video below, it’s a temporary inconvenience, but keeps the trails in good shape through the winter and is healthier for our trail system long term. So please, no leaf clearing at the farm. Thanks.

Construction is complete on the gravel road entrance to the expert side! There’s now a locked gate at the entrance, but club members are welcome to access the trails using this road. There is barbed-wire between the posts on the left, so when entering proceed around the gate to the right. We’ll work on making this a little more easy to ride in the coming weeks. We will also be extending the length of this trail this fall and winter now that things have settled down with the gravel road construction. If you have questions, let us know.

Trail work starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday 6/24/2015. Meet in upper parking lot. We are clearing overhang and small branches, so hand saws, loppers and weed eaters are helpful. We estimate about 2 hours of work. Be prepared to hike and BRING WATER! See you then!

Looks like the farmer starting doing some more work on the fields to prep for planting yesterday. So this is just a reminder that the fields on the near side of the stream are off-limits. When he’s done planting we will see what we can do about getting a trail around the edge of the field down to the metal bridge crossing. The fields on the far side of that stream are unaffected so continue using those. In fact, Mr. Burke cut several paths on that side we are welcome to use – but double up on your tire sealant.

The trail work we had scheduled for 4/28 at 5:30 has been postponed. Heavy rain is on the way and it looks like it would be at its worst right around the time we were scheduled to work. We will tentatively reschedule for the following Monday (5/5) at 5:30. Thanks for everyone who said they’d come out. I hope you can make it next week.
