The 53x11 Coffee roadside/ trail clean up crew is coming along. We've been working on this for awhile. It's finally going to happen. We are sending out emails next week to everyone we know about this. Here's what it's all about. We are looking to get team, clubs, invididuals together to start roadside/trail clean up projects in the areas they ride. We will provide the coffee! You'll also get some good exposure and recongnition on our site under the clean up crew section. How often are you on a ride and look over to see a bunch of trash that some redneck threw out his or her car window. I've seen it one to many times. So a couple years ago I started going out on my own and picking up the roadside trash. You should have seen the looks people gave when driving by. Most thought I was doing community service or some sort. I felt pretty good about my efforts. So gather friends , family, teammates, and hit the roads or trails we all share and ride upon. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org If you have a group gathering for a clean up effort, I'll send the coffee.
