Did you cut out a tree to fit your personal riding style, or are you simply commenting that the tree has been cut out? :?:

Jon,
I believe he cut the tree for us based on our request as well as others on this board. I would have done this as well if I had the time.

Thanks for the help Jason

No - that'd be uncool.

Normal response for clearing deadfall is a thanks BTW.

Did a few laps yesterday and all I can say is, "What a perfect day to ride". The trail was fast and in good shape, the temp was right and I even saw a few deer out there.

Had a awesome ride out here today. The tires were grabbing and I played the leaves nicely.

Got a late morning ride in. :)

Trail was in good shape; a little tacky from last night?s rain but no standing water and only a few muddy spots. Even with the wet leaves it wasn?t as slick as I was expecting; I only found 1 tricky spot ?a combination of wet leaves, roots on an uphill turn within the first mile. My riding partner said he had a slick spot on a tight turn which was covered in wet leaves on the last mile and a half.

rode maybury on monday and it was not muddy, it wasn't dry, but the trail wasn't unstable. There are leaves EVERYWHERE and they don't play nice with small block 8's F/R. It was a great ride though.

Postby ibisman » November 12th, 2008, 9:48 am

hmmmm, I rode monday morning and I saw mud, and it was slick. maybe my Pythons (which are bald) did'nt grip very well as I could only do laps in the high 30's. :roll:

I went that evening, and when I got done with the ride there was nothing on by bike but a couple of leaves. That's why I say it was wet, but not muddy. There were a couple of mud holes, but I just jumped over them.

nice hike today, except for being run over?

Postby drbrockenshire » November 16th, 2008, 3:38 pm

So you see the IMBA rules of the trail at trail heads these days. That's great!!!!! SO why don't hikers follow basic rules like that? Hiking on the "hiking trails" with my 4 year old today in the snow even, we "ran" into a group of at least 30 people hiking top speed????? Of course no manners, no warning, just a push you off the trail attitude. I jumped left at an intersection and my son tried to follow, but was run over by the marching crowd. Any ideas who the group was? Sierria club fundraiser? What happened to the rule of not going in "large" groups? Not even an acknowledgement that they were coming or a sorry for running you over.

Oh well, at least they were unarmed, I think?

If you were a hiker, you'd probably report the incident and ask/write/request to revoke mountain bikers trail access to a greater extent. funny how these things work, but just maybe the squeakiest wheel gets the oil.
