logo on purple!

Our Diva shirts are being printed this week! Here is a test print Lori and I reviewed yesterday. We also saw the design printed on the light purple cotton shirt; also very nice. We'll be wearing them soon!

powering up powerline

Divas are like the postal service - a little wind, clouds, and sprinkles didn't keep us from our appointed duty to ride up Powerline Trail last Wednesday.

diggin' in the dirt

Most of the Monday night gang!

This past Monday evening, a group of Divas headed out to Kincaid to do some finish work on the new singletrack that's being built this summer. With nine new miles of trail going in, there's lots to do and we were happy to be joined by a few partners and other mountain bikers from around the community.

The trail takes shape!

Crew chief Brian (far left in the top pic) was kept busy showing us how to make banked turns and how to make sure the water sheets off the trail instead of running down it during rain showers.

Michele, Kass, Bonnie & Gloria in motion.

After walking part of the route and doing a couple hours of trail work, I think everyone's excited about adding these trails to our list of places we love to ride. And we will! Thanks, Divas, for the great turnout and the hard work.

muddy fun on the hillside

muddy legs and bikes were the norm after days of rain

logo time

How exciting is this? We have our new logo design! Through the merging of ideas & creative input, plus a graphic designer to make it come to life, the design is in its final stage: getting the colors right. And this fall we'll have tech tee shirts and a long-sleeve cotton tee that people can order and wear before the snow flies (in town that is).

Here's the black & white design:Chainring: check. Pearls: check. Girl climbing a mountain: check.

It will be sublimated onto royal purple tech tees and onto a lilac long-sleeve cotton tee. We chose white and magenta as the design colors so it'll really stand out and look quite classy against the purple.

Thanks to everyone who helped out and kept it going when you probably would have rather been biking, especially: Katherine, Lori, Anne, Carey (graphic designer). We'll post some pics when we have the shirts!
