So what are you trying to say Pete...that bikers are to be treated the same as a car on the road. This type of talk is just absurd!

just a FYI to any that ride during the daytime, Friday the 15th there will be a few guys out at Stony doing some trail repairs so just be aware that they are out there.
The area they will be working on is the little hill right after the first rock garden on the roller coaster and the beginning part of the big reroute we did a couple of years ago.

Also we will be having a trailday to do some work on the top of the snakes leading up to the top of Mt Sheldon, the date for that is Saturday the 6th of Nov for anyone that is available.
We will be meeting at the trailhead at 9am, bring gloves and strong backs

Iceman weekend? Do you TRY to schedule on top of other stuff?

I won't be there, obviously, even thought I'm not considered to be a 'racer'.. :wink:

Pete's choice was the 24th of Oct, but I wont be in any condition to do trailwork, much less stand that day
I'll talk to Pete and see if we can push it back to the next weekend, we just didn't want to wait too long and risk the chance of bad weather

Really nice out there right now. Trails are leafy, but most are broken down enough that there's little with them being slick. This is definitely a good day to go riding.

Rode the usual loop on Wednesday afternoon, I few small wet spots but overall good ride. Leaves were bountiful, but the lines were well worn so no issues. Not ready for the season to end... :(

Season to end? Much of the trail will be ridable all winter!

Get some studded tires and/or a fatbike, and it doesn't really have to end. :icon_thumleft:
