      The bike lane clearing will take place on Field Road this Wednesday from 4-5pm.  Meet at the intersection of Field Road and Parkway Drive, the road to the Salmonid Society hatchery in Wilson Creek. We will have signs on the Field Road so you won't miss the spot.  

      Field Road doesn't link to any School but it is the cycle route for one of the largest and most active Bike to Work teams during the last several years.  We're hoping to spot a few of them while we're out there.

      We will be removing mainly gravel and sand at this location so a sturdy broom or flat bladed shovel will be very useful.  Thanks to all those who provided suggestions about what roads to tackle next.  Lets hope that one of the road maintenance crews will get there in the meantime.
