Unauthorized 'Wildcat' trail rehab day with RRRD - Strong Work!!

Saturday September, 29th the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest hosted a work day to rehab a 1/2 mile of trail illegally constructed off of Brewer Road. Volunteers showed up ready to work and put tool to ground to help restore the land. There has been much success in moving forward and developing the trail system here. The VVCC does not stand to see any more illegally constructed trail and will continue to work with the RRRD to help adopt, plan, maintain and construct new trail in the area. If you couldn't make it you missed out. Good times and some good prizes. we had a great offering of schwag from the local shops Bike & Bean, Over the Edge, Absolute Bikes, The Hike House and the VVCC. A couple attendees even won double prizes. Stay tuned as we will have more trail days coming up to get involved in and help. Click read more to see the pics.

VVCC Club Jerseys Are Here...

The long wait is over. The VVCC Club jerseys have arrived … and, if I do say so myself, look great! See the attractive jersey model, David Singer, in the photos. I’ll bring the jerseys to the Saturday Morning VOC/Sedona Road Ride this week, 8/18, for distribution to anyone that wants to pick up their jersey. I’ll be handing them out between 7:30am-8:00am. I’ll also be at the RED ROCK CAFÉ next to IGA Webers Grocery Store between 10:30am-12:00 noon or so after the ride. We’ll also make arrangements to coordinate a pick-up in Cottonwood for sometime next week. Those details to follow. Anyone else that wants to make special arrangements, just let me know. I’m happy to help. Ride in style! Thomas McGoldrick (928) 301-3621
