Shimano Tech Reps carving out a new line to create a more sustainable drain for the next rain.

 

As Southern California gets hit with repetitive rainfall, our trails require persistent maintenance. Shimano employees continue our commitment to the surrounding parks by dedicating time to restore trails by filling in ruts and carving sustainable drainage systems throughout the OC Parks trail network.

SHARE has been a fantastic resource in connecting the Shimano team with land managers, and a great resource to teaching the team how to be proper trail bosses. Our tech reps flew in the week of February 18th and stayed an additional day to help repair BFI in Crystal Cove after a storm washed out the trails the week before.

Shimano is excited to continue growing our relationships with OC Parks and support SHARE in its efforts to create safe and enjoyable trails for all local residents. We hope to see you out at the next trail day putting in work on the trails we all love!
