    Who else does volunteer trail maintenance either formally or casually (just fixing problems you see on your local trails)?

    I've never done "formal" trail work but I have cleaned and maintained both the city-owned greenways and the county owned MTB trails around my [old] house on many occasions.

    I would ask that anyone who is riding along and sees a problem with the trail (be it branches overgrowing the trail, mud washed across the trail, or just litter along side the trail) that you take action to make your cycling infrastructure better for yourself and the community.
