Yes we are. Since we will be cutting new trail this rain will effect us very little. It's supposed
to stop by 4pm that will give things a chance to dry up. Look forward to seeing you there.

Trail day was a great success! Thanks to Roy, Bob, Erik, Marty, Nick, Paul A., Greg, Mark,
Robert, Jim, George, Mike, Norbert, Jeff and Jerry. Aaron and I would like to thank these
15 awesome individuals for taking time out of their busy lives to come out and help build
two new segments of trail at CRPT. You people rock!

And speaking of rocks check these out.

Here is a off camber rock wall section.

At the bottom of this there is alittle surprise.

Sorry for the pic quality it was really hazy this morning when I was out there.

I do have one more feature I want to add, haven't decided where in the new
segments I want to build it. If you've ever seen endurocross you will have an
idea of what it is I want to build. It will be sick on a mountain bike. :twisted: :lol: :shock:

I snuck back out and rode the new segment on Sunday... It is going to have great flow... we just need to pack it down!

Could we use some of the chunks of concrete to build up the muddy sections close to the trailhead? People are creating their own trails to get around mud, it dosn't feel much like the woods over there...

Aaron and I went out this morning and did a bridge relocation. The bridge we
moved will no longer be used in it's old location because of the two new trail
segments.

Old location.

New location.
