How it Got Built
As part of our fall campaign, we profiled nine bike infrastructure projects across the nation and told the stories of how they got built. One of those projects was the Olympic Discovery Trail Adventure Route in Port Angeles, Washington. A unique aspect of this mountain bike trail is that a large portion of the construction work was done by a group of volunteers called the Thursday Crew, 20-30 volunteers who went out once a week to build trail. The volunteers, who ranged in age from 50s to almost 90, included one volunteer, a woman in her 80s, who maintained all the chainsaws.
