It's right on the singletrack off to the side, covered by some low plants. It's on "remember me" in the wooded section about 200yards in. It's the second time I have hit it, the first time it about tore my pedal off, and I thought I hit a rock. This time I stopped and went back and looked. there it was like a big shank. I'm gonna dig it out this week. It's kinda hard to explain exactly where it is, and honestly I owe you guys some trail work. Out of curiosity has anyone else hit that thing?
(BTW I did a temporary fix by placing some branches around it, so if you happen to see two or three long-ish branches lining the perimeter of the right hand side of the trail.... stop and take a look. it's a widowmaker for sure...)
If thats the one out by the creek my son tore up his sidewall on it. We tried to get it out and couldn't so we pounded it in. Guess it didn't last.
