Trail Gods Were At It Again

Mountain bikers are a caring, good bunch of gents and gals. We see it at the Bash, at other events, races, and I witness it numerous times on the trails. They care about each other, about the trails, about the event they are at. They aren't afraid to chip in, help out, share, or lend a hand. They remove tree limbs, ramp up logs, and will stop and take a minute to do a little trail maintenance. I even know a couple guys who will carry a small folding saw with them to do some maintenance while riding. Today, I saw no less than 5 or 6 trees that were chain sawed to get them off the trail. Someone took a bunch of time to walk all of Fawn Kill (about 3 miles) and also got a huge tree on Doc Smith. THANK YOU. You know who you are, but I don't know who you are or I'd send you a personal thank you. Mountain bikers ROCK!!! Thanks guys and gals - you're all the best.

Trail Update March 18, 2011

RIDE ON! No ice, snow, or even gushing water at this point. Just a couple trees to hop over every now and then, but hey - that's mountain biking! Hello springtime - nice to have you.

Water Water Everywhere

If you ride on Sunday, March 13, be prepared to get wet. There's some serious water flowing in the woods and all those runs that are normally dry, are now true runs. Rattling Creek trail is very wet and there's many sections of the trail that the water is running straight down it. The trail normally flows beautifully, but today its flowing with water so beware.
