Finished East Loop the other day and noted that my tire pump that is normally nestled in my Camelback was gone. Think it got snagged on some branches or vines I had to duck under. It is grey with a slightly bent rod. I posted something on the lost and found too. If anyone finds it please let me know.

Thanks,
Patrick

I trimmed the brush on the north loop. Discovered a 3 inch log about four inches in the air cross ways on it. No saw with me though!

Hi all,

We road the trails last week and they were in great condition! We got in 7miles of riding on the North, West, and Tech Loops. It is my favorite trail system in the area, and Thanks to everybody that helps to maintain them to keep them great! Already planning our next trip! I film all of my events and activities and here is the video of our ride!

P.S if the audio doesn't work try on youtube.

You should rotate your brake levers down so that they're more in-line with your forearms.

Thanks as it was needed. Rode all the West Saturday without a nick. Then rode North as to cool down and was nailed twice by stickers. You could see the DR trimmers were used but hedge clippers were needed. Thanks again!

Yeah on longer rides my handle bar seems to rotate so my brakes are out of line. I think I need to reset them and tighten them down. Thanks!

Awesome! Thanks for posting the vid. Looks like no one was afraid of the skinnies! :D

If you haven't already, next time you visit do the Meadows loop. It's a nice fast & flowy trail (like North) but with more elevation change (not as much as West).
A fun, 'Just Right' loop.

Rode all of the East was in excellent shape. One big mess at 12.5 that I went back and chainsawed out. :lol:

We will finish trimming on the East, clean the trail tread on the orchard and possibly some trimming on the west.

Lake Loop was fine last weekend. Unless there's nothing better to do, all of West could probably make it till the next work day with as much traffic as it gets.
