It's me again... Jeff Willson, A.K.A. "The Rhino!"
I am one of the Junior coaches for the NEYC "New England Youth Cycling" kids team the "WOMPY WARRIORS"!
I am very excited to invite you to ride my local trail system The Carolina Hills!
This will be the 2nd official Mountain Bike race in Marshfield, Massachusetts.
It is in wonderful shape!
Volunteers and myself have been out clipping and clearing the trails all season because it is my private training area, but I am now ready to share it with you.
Some of you know about the "Hills", you can't go down if you don't go up!
This race will have fun laps mixed with dirt roads and flowy single track with a little bit of "WOMPY TECH" you all will enjoy.
It's also smooth enough you could ride a hardtail if you want.
Each lap will be about 3.3 miles. It sounds short but you will enjoy the climbs with some fast flowy, double track descents.
I have wanted to have a race in my home town last year, so we did and it was awesome!
I want to show more people my primo riding spots right here in Marshfield.
We are going to have all kinds of Categories:
Cat 1/2/3, Junior/Junior Varsity/HS Seniors, Fat bike and New for this year Pro Category.

A little about Recreational Trail Committee of Marshfield
Who We Are and What We Do:
Established by the Select Board in October 2014, the Recreation Trails Committee is a working committee comprised of Five (5) members and Two (2) alternate members, all Marshfield residents, appointed by the Select Board for overlapping three (3) year terms. The RTC strives to improve town trails and walking opportunities through: Trail Maintenance, Organized Community Walks, Improved Signage, Kiosks and Maps. The RTC seeks to partner with town departments, boards, individuals, local businesses and community groups who are interested in improving our community trail system.
In addition to our appointed members, the RTC is fortunate to have both the Town Planner and the Conservation Agent as Committee Advisors.
The Recreation Trails Committee welcomes additional volunteers who are interested in promoting, improving and maintaining town trails for all Marshfield residents and neighbors to enjoy.
The Trail Ambassadors are a subset of the Trails Committee. Trail Ambassadors perform routine and regular maintenance on the town trails. Trail Ambassadors cut, rake, trim, clean up rubbish, mark, and monitoring trails on a weekly basis. Trail Ambassadors work on a different trail each week for a two (2) hour time period. Trail Ambassadors partner with other volunteers to cut new trails, repair footbridges and install new trail benches. If you have a Trail Ambassador question you may contact us through the Marshfield website.
So, what does this mean? The RTC typically meets the second Wednesday of the month at the Town Hall, Planning Department Conference room. The meetings are open to the public and are scheduled to start at 7:00 pm. The goal is to complete all business by or before 9:00 pm. At times we may meet more often, such as if we attend a board meeting or Town Meeting.
We have an active and varied board, we are always looking for a few new friends, stop by one of our meetings and meet RTC members and advisors.
Thank You for reading all of the notes!
