    New ARR Trail Work Day for Saturday 10/14/2017. More details here - https://www.meetup.com/mountainbikes...nts/244117457/

    This is continuing work along East Williamson Creek Greenbelt.

    Link has been updated and appears to be working. Just in case, here is the text from Meetup -

    Help the Austin Ridge Riders build the newest natural surface hike and bike trail in Austin. We will be clearing the trail tread through the East Williamson Creek Greenbelt. Note that the meeting location is on a residential street with limited parking.

    Meet and park on Creek Bend Drive near 4907 Creek Bend. If you are late, go to the the short dead end street to the south, go thru the gate and follow the trail to the right. (We have cleared the tread here but it is getting over grown again.) After you cross the creek (about a 1/2 mile) turn right again to continue west. We will be working in that general area. If we make good progress, we might be 1/4 to 1/2 mile to the west of the creek crossing. Depending on turnout we may clear roots and limbs (move fast) or bench cut the tread (move slow). This will be heavy work. It is not appropriate for small children.

    Wear closed toe shoes because we will be digging in the ground. Bring water (camelback or water bottle) and gloves if you have them. ARR will provide tools (pick, shovel, lopers, etc.) Bring your own tools if you prefer your own tools. There is lots of poison ivy, chiggers and mosquito - dress accordingly.

    For the TMBRA racers - this work cay is eligible for Pay Dirt hours for the 2018 season. Bring your Pay Dirt form.

    New Walnut Creek Trail Workday posted on Meetup for Saturday 11/11/2017. HAS BEEN CANCELLED

    Apologies for the last minute cancellation. We are trying to get the word out everywhere.

    Help the Austin Ridge Riders Trail Crew correct the erosion problem at the Tar Branch Crossing (EMS location 300 on the Walnut Creek Park trail map). Meet at the parking lot end of the big sidewalk at 9:00 AM. We will hike to the Tar Branch Crossing. A large group should have most of the heavy work moving rock on 11/9 and 11/10. This work day is to finish the moving smaller rocks and smoothing the new tread surface. Wear long pants and closed toe shoes. Bring water (Camelbak or water bottle) and gloves if you have them. ARR will provide tools (shovels, buckets, etc.) and some gloves.

    The erosion control work is similar to what was done at the Main Creek Crossing in the Spring of 2017. (The Main Creek Crossing is at location 236 on the Walnut Creek trail map.) The City of Austin has requested this erosion control work so they do not have to close that section of trail.

    For the TMBRA racers who need PayDirt hours - bring a PayDirt form. Don't you want to get your PayDirt hours done before the deadline for 2018?

    New Reimer's Ranch Trail Workday on Saturday 11/18/2017

    Help the Austin Ridge Riders Trail Crew clean up the trail and keep it in shape for riding. This is planned as a work day for NICA (high school) racers. Wear long pants and closed toe shoes. Bring water (Camelbak or water bottle) and gloves if you have them. ARR will provide tools (lopers, saws, shovels, buckets, etc.) and some gloves.

    This will be a very special event as Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza is planning to bring their pizza truck to feed the work crew. Make sure you RSVP so we can give your name to the entry gate so they let you in without paying.

    You MUST RSVP to get in without paying the entrance fee. Travis County is very clear that in order to get in free - they have to have your name on their list of volunteers.

    The exact work is still being planned (will be posted soon). We expect to be trimming branches off the trail, trimming grass / weeds of the trail, filling holes in the trail tread, and similar work. We will divide up into smaller groups and sending each group to a work location.

    We are posting this long before the weather forecast is known. Check back here before you drive out. We will postpone if the weather turns bad.

    For the TMBRA racers who need PayDirt hours - bring a PayDirt form. Don't you want to get your PayDirt hours done before the deadline for 2018? Same for NICA racers - bring your sign-off forms so we can get you credit for your work.
