What do you get with (2) trail workers Plus Jeremy on his fatbike, 640# of Quickrete, (1) wheelbarrow, 6 gal water and a few hand tools?

OK so I gave in and rode it Sunday.
Trail was good and Pines real fast. The 'repairs' done on Saturday were great especially over the concrete armoring.
Front wheel got a little squirmy on the loose stuff but it is already bedding down nicely.

Once again - thanks for the work. It is appreciated.

Pine tree down... In the pines not too far from the entrance, before the first really fast sweepers. A little mud here and there, but mostly good.

I managed to limb the entire tree and enlisted the help of a fellow rider and we moved said Pine tree about 95% off the trail. If any of you are out there in a group of (4) or more, feel free to push it further off the trail.

Thanks,
Pete,

Great late fall conditions out there tonight. Ground is dry and hard, some leaf cover but nothing to worry about.
Saw one other headlamp, but no other riders. It was well worth braving the chill.

Go out and ride - it's a hunter free zone.

Rode yesterday around 10:30 - 12:30 while there was a break in the rain. Pines was slushy where there was no tree cover but the ground underneath was firm except for one slick spot. the rest of the trail was OK.
With the rain yesterday and today plus the temps, probably best to stay out of the pines for a day or two.
Hopefully it will be firm again for Wednesday's Group Ride.

Rode this tonight. Trail tread was near-perfect on the singletrack. Some wet spots on the northern 2-track sections.

Several trees down... 2 in the Pines, 1 after the S-bridge, and 1 over the bridge after the Rock Garden. Both chainsaw-worthy. One in the Roller Coaster, about 1/3 of the way in. Two in the Back Nine, pretty early on. These last 3 are all smaller diameter, but too long for one person to move. There is also one across the 2-track after WooHoo.

There is also a metric *beep* (yes, a metric one!) of derailleur-eating deadfall. Be careful!

The only trees left are the 2 in the Pines, the others are gone. Trail is in great shape.

The fallen trees in the Pines are now cleared.
The trail was Frozen Fast today at sun-up.
Enjoy, and thanks for the help clearing the other trees.

Pete.
