Riding and camping Northern California and beyond, since 1965!
It's time again to do our part and clean up some highway! You may not know this but BMW NorCal sponsors a 2 mile section of Highway 101, south of San Jose. Lately we haven't been putting much of an emphasis on this program, but we need to turn that around. Club member Ed Perry brought this program to the club and has been single handedly running it - and he needs our help. Our next clean-up day is Saturday, May 11th so let's see how many NorCal volunteers we can pull together. Don't feel left out if you can't make this one, we are hoping to do this quarterly.
If this is your first time - pay attention. You'll need to watch a Caltrans safety video first. Everyone needs to do this, for obvious reasons. From your PC download the video here (not really mobile friendly) or go to http://www.dot.ca.gov/maintenance/adopt-a-highway/index.html and look for the Safety DVD For All Participants link. Give yourself a little time, the video is 15 minutes. Or from all devices, click here for the video on Youtube. This is the important part - don't put it off.
On the day of the clean-up we will meet at Yolked Extreme Breakfast at 9:00 (get there earlier if you want breakfast). And think about carpooling. Ed will conduct the safety briefing and hand out PPE (personal protective equipment). Show up in long pants and footwear with decent ankle support. (This is also pointed out in the video.) The clean-up will take a few hours so you might want to bring some water. Folks will leave their cars at Yolked and pile into two or three for the drive to our section of highway. Afterwards folks usually get together for a lunch. And remember, this is light work with more hands so step up and volunteer!
RSVP and contact Ed if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: Do not email Ed if you can't make this date, even if you RSVP'd.
