Burke Mtn Trail Day

February 28, 2015 at 8:26 pm

We’d like to send out a huge thanks to everyone who gave up some riding time on a beautiful day in February last weekend to help us restore Frank’s to fast, flowy, fun. We had over 60 people show up; by far the largest turnout ever. A special thanks goes out to ‪#‎Wesbild‬ for giving us permission to work on their land and for buying us lunch. Thanks to Me-N-Ed’s Pizza for giving us a killer discount on the 17 pizzas that were consumed. And last but not least, thanks to our sponsor for the day:
