Last year the Muddbunnies Riding Club and Ryders Eyewear teamed up to adopt the Team Pangor trail under the new Trail Adoption Program (TAP) Four trail days and three trail evenings later and Pangor has been given a new lease on life.
This year we plan to finish what we started, there are a few more drainage issues that have been identified and will be addressed, and the potential of an exciting new re-route around a badly eroded area.
So what is the TAP?
The Trail Adoption Plan pairs a Trail Adopter, who provides financial support, mobilises volunteers, and runs trail maintenance days with a Trail Maintainer, who provides design guidance, trail maintenance expertise, and leads the efforts of the Adopter on all trail days. Collectively, the Adopter and Maintainer work with the NSMBA to develop a vision of a trail based on environmental sustainability. All work will be performed to the standards of the landowners.
Trail Adoptors: Ryders Eyewear & Muddbunnies Riding Club (BC)
Trail Maintainers: Sven Luebke

More details will be released closer to trailday, expect to be on the trail for a good days work (there is lots to do) These days will be a mix of Muddbunnies (and their Jackrabbits) and Ryders. You will be given the opportunity to work closely with our trail maintainers, learning about trail maintenance and sustainability, while giving back to the community.
We will also need volunteers who may not be able to spend a full day on the trail to help prepare/deliver lunches to the trail teams.
Dates will be announced closer to the time, however we again plan to have two evening mini-trail days for Muddbunnies members.
If you wish to participate in these trail days and already know you can commit to one (or more) of the dates above, please send Jaclyn an email firstname.lastname@example.org
