some words from Ben, and some pics from Larry:
What a day. Chambersburg is an awesome town on the cusp of greatness. The town features historic buildings and a real sense of community. I am here to try and tap into that using cycling as a catalyst to propel people into a healthier and happier lifestyle.
The city has worked in conjunction with the Mountain Bikers of Michaux to create an opportunity to get families and community members on bikes having fun. We are building a pumptrack measuring roughly 25 x 100 feet and full of excitement. Yesterday was an introduction to all of the players and a look at the site, today was work, work, work.
It all started by moving all of the large rocks out of the fill material and moving soil into place on the design. Then, the fun began. As we started shaping the dirt this afternoon it was like the bat signal had been sent into the stratosphere and the call was out. We had a number of little laborers show up to pitch in and do their best to make sure they had something fun to ride by nightfall. At the wee hours, we are done. What a great day. I hope the photos do the experience justice.
I want to thank some of the key members of this team. Thanks Larry, Tom, Mike, Jody, and Herb. You all rock, it is folks with the foresight like you that can make a difference in people’s lives.
Okay everyone, days 1 and 2 are in the books.
