In an effort to get more organized and focus on more than one shiny object at a time, we've decided it would be best to form sub committees and get people grouped up to lead efforts on multiple fronts. Currently these are the sub committees we're focusing on:
Work with local land managers to secure permissions and easements as
needed to expand the trail network connecting neighborhoods, schools
and trailheads with singletrack trails. Coordinate work days and
volunteers when time to build.
Trail Work Day Coordination
Anyone is welcome! Folks with crew leader training or a general
knowledge of trail building and maintenance or a desire to work on trails
and learn more. People with the ability to haul tools and/or bikes if
needed are always very helpful. Also anyone who likes to help plan,
coordinate groups and help with food and refreshments on our big work
days are great.
New Trail Planning
Work with Government organizations, local land managers (BLM, USFS,
Town of Eagle, Eagle County) to propose and layout new trails. Helpful to
have some familiarity with working with land managers and their
General routine trail maintenance - clip and ride, spring and fall trail
clearing, minor repair of holes, ruts or other issues that come up
throughout the riding season. Can be done independently, leader of
group will help maintain list of projects that need to be done and a group
of people who can help when available.
Focus on community engagement with HTC, strategic partnerships with
business who want to help (ex. Dusty Boot ‘Boot Burger’ program) Fund
raising, merchandise sales and new opportunities.
Work to find camping options in the Eagle Valley
Maintain signage through the area to make sure they are accurate, in
place and improve where needed. Implement educational sign program.
Help with web site, social media, design of flyers, stickers, bike tags,
promotional material, email blasts to members, keeping sub groups
