Thanksgiving Break

Closed Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, OPEN Small Business Saturday!

So I’m going to have to put a hold on some of my repairs for the next few weeks. Apparently mountain biking can be dangerous, who knew? Last week while riding I went over the handlebars, and flew directly into a tree, torpedo-style. End result: I fractured my scapula (shoulder blade) on my left side. The injury itself is not too serious, but it is painful, and I have spend the next couple of weeks in a sling, to keep it immobilized. It’s fairly inconvenient, yes, but I’m not going to let it get me down. I’m already feeling noticeably better, just week after the crash, and I’ve got a fair amount of movement back. I’ve started testing my arm, to see what repairs I can still do. I can continue performing some service, just not all of it, and not particularly fast. And in case you were wondering, don’t worry, my bike wasn’t hurt in the crash.2015-11-18 23.37.41

Trail Building Nov 5 & 7 – Help Wanted

Hopefully by now everybody in the MHC area who is at all interested in mountain biking has been out to Mountain Laurel Trails. It’s an awesome trail system off of 58 west in Horsepasture, and it’s currently around 7 miles of singletrack. Well Bob Norris (landowner, trail builder, and mtn biker) has done a fantastic job with it (mostly by his own power) and wants to round it out to an even 10 miles! There will 2 trail building events this week, and YOU can help finish it. If you have any time/energy to spare, we’d love to see you, even if it’s only for an hour or 2. This should be a productive week, there will be 3 trail machines, and if enough folks turn up, we can knock it out with minimal sweat.

Thursday, Nov 5, 9:00am

Saturday, Nov 7, 8:00am

If you have questions, or want to RSVP, contact Bob (276-340-9144) or join the Facebook Events (linked above^)
