Whiney.

WOW! Really?
Was there lots of complaining about your trimmings laying in the way?


:lol: Well, yes! (see previous post)

This place provides endless entertainment.

Rode BLUE & YELLOW tonight... WAS wonderfully fast & tacky, very few mucky spots... only in the 'normal low places', quick & easy to maneuver around. Thanks for all the work on the trail you guys do! I LOVE IT!

Thank you to whoever trimmed yellow up to the fishing area. It looks great!

I moved a small downed tree that covered the trail at the beginning of the yellow. The trail had a few mud spots but overall ok to ride.

Huge thanks to the 10 members of the JTree cycling team for the massive trimming last week!

I second that! The J-Tree guys really stepped it up and contacted me beforehand asking where to trim to be most effective and where to post their hours. Great job!

A big thanks to Hermanator as well for all his continued efforts.

Big tree down on Blue. About mile 8.5 immediately before the Yellow split. Needs a chain saw and crew.
Else, both trails are good with just a few mud holes each.

ILRA was in fine shape today. There were still some soft areas, but only a few that would actually be considered "wet".

The downed tree on Yellow was cleared around noon by a couple of industrious lady riders. Many thanks!

Wow, that was fast! The tree clearing that is - it was there @ 11:00 am. Trail was pretty awesome.
