Get out and volunteer, Richmond! According to Richmond MORE, work continues Saturday morning on the Belle Isle Bike Skills Area.

This week we’ll continue work on the intermediate pump track site. We’ll continue our work on site clearing, establish root protection zones for the trees that the pump track will weave through and install silt fencing to keep the construction dirt out of the James River.

As a reminder, we’ll be working on the Skills Area every Saturday through May. We hope to see you out there.

  • What: Belle Isle Skills Area
  • When: 9 a.m. Saturday, April 14, 2012
  • Where: Belle Island under the Lee Bridge (park at Tredegar or Reedy Creek)
  • Bring: Gloves, Water, Snack

Also, Richmond-MORE’s April Club Meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 18th at Piccola’s Restaurant. Piccola’s is located at Main and Harrison near VCU. Please join us at 6pm for the social and 6:30pm of the club meeting.
