La Barriere Set-up

A note from Gary, the CX Czar:
Work begins at 2:00 pm and continues until dusk. We appreciate whatever time people can donate. Setting up the 'stairs' will take one small crew. You'll get to play with power tools. The rest of us will stake the course.

Sunday we will need to tape, rake leaves in some areas and maybe do some staking.
If you are looking for something to do later this afternoon, then show up to La Barriere. It is worth the trip, if only for the opportunity to drive over the washed out bridge. There is no need to go all the way around. That is silly. The kids and I drove it just last week. Just ignore all the signs. It will make you feel like a kid again. Unless you were the obedient type. In which case, we can only offer our condolences.

If this were an FGBC race, we would be running the course over that bridge. Show up to help set up the course and maybe we can make that happen.

As we were heading toward the washed out bridge, we had another idea (this is how ADHD works): CX in the Ruins. What better place to race a bike than in and around a burned out monastery? A burned out Trappist monastery. Just like the brewing monasteries that dot the landscape in the birthplace of cx itself. Think about it. We can do so much better.
