    Default Help Fix Trollheim Bridge with the Friends of Mount Vernon Trail

    The Friends of Mount Vernon Trail are seeking volunteers for multiple events in our ongoing effort to make Trollheim Bridge a little less trollish.

    10/31 - Come help us remove the gunk between the board decks that prevents drainage and contributes to mold, mildew and other slippery stuff. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/125567909999
    11/14 - You hear those deck boards flopping around when you ride on the bridge? Come help reattach them. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/125570848789
    11/19 - Come help replace some deck boards that are rotting. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/125571390409
    12/5 - There's a lot of freaking loose boards. This is a second loose board fixing event. If we run out of boards, we'll start flipping some of the boards to extend their life. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/125572507751

    We're also raising funds to apply an anti-skid treatment to Trollheim. The super good stuff that will both work and survive heavy use and bad weather is pricey. If you'd like to help, you can contribute at our GoFundMe:

    Now just $40 away from our goal in less than 2 days! Out of 14 donors, 4 are named Chris. So if your name is Chris, thereís a lot of peer pressure to donate today at https://www.gofundme.com/f/a-crash-free-trollheim

    Thank you to the multiple forum members who have contributed.

    I am not named Chris, yet I too feel this is a worthy cause.

    The Friends of Mount Vernon Trail are bestowing honorary Chris status upon you. Thank you so much for getting us to the goal. I am always blown away by the generosity of forum members and the way that they support the community.

    Iím going to add a stretch goal since there are several other bridges that need help. Emm had a crash a few weeks ago near Mount Vernon that damaged her bike but thankfully didnít result in serious injury. I had a similar crash near Mount Vernon a few years back that bruised some ribs. Iíll keep working to stop bridge injuries as long as people keep supporting it financially and by volunteering.
