Sunday, I was a little bummed (nice way to put it) to see arrows painted on a tree or two.
I would think the race promoter could find another way to mark the course and not use spray paint on trees. Bad enough we got the blue "triangle painter". Perhaps I am wrong and someone else did the painting. Just seemed like an unlikely coincidence. With that said, the Poto run portion of the trail was free of trash.

If for some reason you had to stop, I made this mistake once to look at the trail map, you were swarmed by 50 or so flies. If you kept moving, you were lucky to only have to swat at 3 or 4 every 100 feet or so. Then of course I managed to get a pinch flat at the Gosslin Lake access and was eaten alive. Not a fun ride at all with those little ba@#%#ds in full effect.

But when I rode it last as I posted about above, I got nailed by some deer flies. One bite on my jaw bone was swollen for 3 days! Awful. I have a moral aversion to DEET (you know, since it's a potent neuro-toxin and is completely poisonous) but the natural bug repellent only works so well....

Do have to ask (at the risk of sounding like a wimp) if there is any plans to change that gnarly downhill after the flat section after the boy scout hill (before the little "mac" bridge)? That section is getting pretty bad and scary.
