Don’t Mess With Peavine!


P-Quad #1 a success!

In support of the Great Truckee Meadows Community Cleanup The Poedunks hauled some major trash off the trails of Peavine Mountain.

Fueled by pancakes, bacon and black coffee 15 – 20 mountain bikers set out to scrub the mountain’s singletrack and non-motorized zone of litter. Utilizing people power not horsepower several of the crew overloaded their bikes, trailers and packs with everything from auto parts…

…to shotgun shells hauling several yards of trash to the dumpsters at The West Keystone Canyon Trail Head. A big SHOUT goes out to all who contributed their time and energy!

Hauling it in

We cleaned up the shooting gallery along the “tad-dunbar-can’t-see-his-feet” trail, fenders and debris near the top of the Evan’s creek switchbacks, wood from the start of the Entrail, the RGJ newspaper vendor south of Hoge. Several of these areas were in the Non-Motorized zone and we removed all of the material by bike having fun, improving our resource and proving that bikes are an extremely useful tool for trail maintenance.

  4. […] Monthly Challenge: June This is the last day of May and the last day of the Bike to Work Month Challenge. Mr. Rambler, whom I met for Pints of Guinness the other day at Ceol (my favorite new bar with it’s no smoking, no gaming and friendly owner, Ron) rode over 500 miles on his cross town commute. I rode significantly less than that, but did ride every day and onlybought groceries once by bike and that was for P-Quad. […]
