What To Expect

Volunteering With Swamp Mountain Bike Club


Suggested clothing:

 • A hat

 • Long pants and a dry wick shirt

 • Sturdy shoes and work gloves that fit

 • Change of clothes for afterwards


Things to bring:

 • A smile

 • Sun screen and bug spray

 • Hydration pack or water bottle

   (If you forget water, we will have some on hand)

We ask that you show up 15 minutes before the scheduled start time (time is a non renewable resource so please be respectful). You are welcome to come and go on your own time. All that we ask is that you let the trail boss know if you plan to leave early, then follow up to report hours.


• Check for ticks

 • Be aware of nearby wildlife, espcially snakes.

 • Stay with at least one other person at all times.

 • Pack out your trash. Please leave nothing behind.

 • Don't hesitate to ask if you are unsure of your assignment.

 • You may encounter riders, let them pass and wish them a good ride. 

 • Use caution when using tools, especially power tools. If you do not feel safe doing something, ask for instruction.

 • Come out and do what you can. Don't push yourself too hard.

 • If you come out and realize that trail work is not for you, there are other ways you can help strengthen the community. Please contact us with any questions, comments, concerns, ideas.


We are all volunteers and at the end of the day this is our passion. Have fun in the wilderness, and relish in the thought that you helped your fellow riders build trails we all can enjoy. Encourage one another and work as a team. Invite passing riders to come and join us. This is something you will want to share.
