The Volunteers for Outdoor California provides a volunteer workforce for large-scale trail maintenance and construction projects, habitat restoration, and related land stewardship activities on public lands in partnership with public agencies and other nonprofit organizations. Help us maintain and expand the Dragoon Gulch Trail system October 12 and 13 with V-O-Cal!
The Motherlode Bicycle Coalition led their first bicycle rodeo this summer with the help of the California Highway Patrol (CHP), Sonora Cyclery, and Sonora Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership. We set up a fun and educational bike safety course following the League of American Bicyclists‚ Bicycling Skills 1 2 3 Manual, gave out free helmets, provided bike maintenance, and gathered community responses for the Tuolumne County Active Transportation Plan (ATP). As a small bike advocacy organization, the involvement of the local business community and law enforcement was extremely helpful, and together we held a successful bike rodeo that we will replicate in the future.
Please contact us if you would like to host a bike rodeo or bike maintenance workshop in Tuolumne or Calaveras County. We plan on leading more bike safety education rodeos and workshops for children and adults next year.
