Trail Work at Fort DuPont Sat April 6th

I am leading my first trail work at Fort DuPont on Sat April 6th starting at 9:30 am. Originally I proposed this Sunday, forgetting it was Easter.  
We will meet at 9:30 in the main parking lot along Fort David Drive just north of Randal Circle. (See map below). We will have gloves and bags for you, but if you prefer to bring your own that is cool.
We’ll break into groups to cover multiple sections. The highest priority is the section between Fort Davis/Texas and Massachusetts.  Not much trash, but the most used.  The next section is between Fort Davis/Texas and North Capital with a lot of trash. If enough folks  come, we’ll also spread out to the southern sections beyond Branch Ave. The attach basic trail map shows what sections we’ll be working on.
Call me at 814-777-2580 if you have any questions, arrive late and want to join us, etc.

Jan 27th Fort DuPont Ride Report

On Sunday January 27th, I lead another ride in Fort DuPont in SE Washington DC. Had a total of six people join  us, including two that had never been in the park before. Rode for a total of about 9 miles. Was nice and slow and involved a lot of talking. http://app.strava.com/activities/38848338

Based on the amount of tire tracks out there, the few people we ran into, and results shown on Strava, a lot more people ride out there than I think.
