Rode a couple of laps last evening. Many very slick/soft spots throughout the trail. Also a big thank you to Spinwheel and the few who showed last weekend for the trail day. Th reroute is fun, thanks for the hard work.

Agreed: Wide trail = impact of overgrowth is minimized

Dean and Ken and other ghost pruners - thanks.

FCA trail crew - thanks to you too..

Out this morning and cleared 5 or 6 widow makers and a little pruning.
Almost an inch of rain yesterday - trail is soaked, pizza cutters in the muddy low spots, boot treads packed with muddy sand. I'll be riding the paths and dirt roads today.

The high winds over the past week have taken a toll. I cleared a few trees Sunday AM, but there's a lot of smaller clean-up still to do. If you normally do two or more laps, please consider giving back to the trail by picking up five sticks during your future warm up laps. Or better yet, put a pruner in your pack and cut back some shrubs/vines in your favorite area of the trail. The face slappers are pretty much removed, but there are still numerous tight areas that will tickle your legs.

Trail is perfect. The new reroute is nice. Keep up the good work! I'm hoping I can find a weekend in the future to pay my dues
Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.

Rode the Hick this morning with a couple of first-timers. No wet spots, and only a few face-slappers. Primo.

The new segments are very well done, still very much in the Hick flavor. :icon_thumleft:
