Thanks Andy for the update also. I haven't ridden the East loop in a month or more. Actually, I have more trial work hours than biking. With that being said, I am planing a to make some more stunts and take one out on the tech loop.

We will meet at 1pm on Sunday July 20, 2008. We will be making a couple more skinnies throughout the West loop. Come out and join us.

I regret to say that I can't do the trail work this Sunday due to work plans that came up.

Thanks for the update, I just need to determine if I'm going to ride there on Wednesday or not. I'm looking for so tight and technical riding.


Try Milford! As tight as it gets and some technical area.

the Orchards Loop is way over grown...

....and I have the mini-scares to prove it. Lots of briars...pretty much non-stop. I would bail out on the road at the Old Shield Road bed. :cry:

Rode Grubers yesterday. Once you hit mile 8, it becomes painful and, in some places, unpleasant. The overgrowth is heavy and the briars are sharp.

The west loop is in great shape. First time out there. Fun ride. Do people really climb the wall?

I rode the West and Lake loops on Monday and it was in great shape as well. I have seen a biker or two at least try to scamper up the wall. I myself take the longer climb bypass.

Rode it Saturday (8/16) and will second that emotion. Most of the overgrowth is on the Orchard loop, I believe. Ouch! :evil:

What's with all the horse poo on West loop? Are equestrians allowed on these trails?
