It was good around 5pm.

Other than the roots on 1st left turn on the 2 mile switchback hill that seem spaced just right to eat my 26er tire. Think I need to cut it tighter next time.

I thought that was just me. Those roots never got me until the last few months. And I've been riding this trail 3 times a week. Has something changed there? It seems more difficult.... I kind of like it like that though...

Agree.
I guess the heavy rains washed out the soil some.
Trail was great today.

x2 on this. I would've joined if I hadn't just finished my first beer.


it's on the Cycletherapy Facebook page. they have been going for the past 3 Thursday's. I figured I throw it out here too for tonight


The Ride Announcement Topic for Pontiac Lake appears to be dormant so apologies for this post here, but it looks like the CycleTherapy Group are planning another Night Ride this week? Can anyone confirm?

Thanks.

As of the night of the 24th there was a tree hanging over the trail. It was located approximately here:

Kinda surprised me because that's a fast moving corner.
It's avoidable, but if you're following the line cleaned of leaves you'll hit it.

It's a small tree. It might be able to be pushed over, or a small saw can cut it.
