Middleburgh  Ridge Runners



The bridge on Trail C7B that travels from the bridge in Middleburgh to Fultonham has a bridge that crosses Line Creek. it is currently CLOSED.   Today, January 8th, 2014, due to an ice jam form the whacky weather we have had lately, we had to remove that bridge. 


Thanks to the time and effort of several club members, some of our landowners and a great effort from Mike Crewell with David Crewell helping and Roosevelt's Tow Truck, the bridge came out intact.  We spent a huge effort after the hurricane to rebuild the bridge which was two years and one day before and thought we would lose it today but everything worked out well.  In spite of the freezing cold, we should all be thankful that it went off without major problems! 


Thanks everybody!!!  A job well done!



ATTENTION EVERYONE:  Our next meeting will be held at 7:00PM on WednesdayAugust 13, 2014. THIS WILL BE FIRST MEETING OF THE NEW SEASON AND WE WILL BE DERTERMINING TRAIL WORK THAT IS NEEDED AND OTHER IMPORTANT DECISIONS. The location for this meeting will be Middle Village Pasta & Grill located at 334 Main Street Middleburgh NY.  If you choose to order food before the meeting, please be sure to arrive somewhat early, preferrably at six so we have plenty of time to complete this meeting.  Thank you.


 The snowmobile trails are now CLOSED for the season   Please remember to do your part and become informed on the workings of our club.  We are running out of energy and need new people that like to work.  If you have time to ride that snowmobile when the snow falls, please remember to do your share to get the trails ready for that ride.  Trail preparation does not just happen by itself as some of you may have seen this year with some of our trails still needing trimming, new signs, cleaning of downfallen trees and brush and bridges needing repair, and such.  Please remember that no one gets paid for their work, we are all volunteers.  The trails are closed to all dirt bikes, ATV's and the like.  Respect the landowners at all times for without them we have NO TRAILS!!!
