Night riding is a little rougher. Have the light on the handle bars which make turning corners kinda fun (as in not.) There is suppose to be an adapter for my helmet and thinking of hitting Assenmachers (if still open) to see how much that is. The boogers flow freely this time of year! The forest is a whole lot more active at night - I suppose raccoons make more noise than chipmunks. :) Have been seeing a light on Lake loop that I had never seen before. So given previous events on it, kinda spooky. Long enough it stays away from me, I'm OK with it. :) Adjusting to the light which makes a few ruts and such even more hidden than having leaves on em! Much slower going, but better for the muscle as there isn't has much coasting!

I'll probably take care of that tree on west.

Cool, don't want to waste a tree!

Lots of hunters out today - but warm enough for riding!

That's odd. I rode West today around 3pm and while I saw a couple of probably-not-mountainbiker's car in the lot, I didn't hear a single shot the entire ride there, while I was on the trail or during the ride back home.

Fun fact : layers of dry leaves are slippery and unpredictable.

Yes, very slippery. My rear tire was slipping going up some of the steeper hills. Very disappointing. Storm suppose to come in today/tonight, so expecting trees down tomorrow!

I moved or cut 3 or 4 small trees (less than 4-inches) on West and Tech. I can't believe we're having a thunderstorm right now.

Went walking on the north loop - if I remember right, three sets of trees are down. Two are quite passable but maybe a surprise for the unwary. The third is all in the trail!

Cleared north loop. Cleared turtle loop. And began clearing West loop - quite the mess out there!

Saturday morning would be good. Around 10:00am?

(I ski the trails too when there is snow on them, and so I am thinking of preparation for that too.)
