I used a soft sided case (similar to an EVOC) to fly with my single speed hardtail 29er to San Francisco last year. Bike was in fine shape and the bag was fairly easy to carry around. No extra fees either, since the bag contained "convention display materials." Woman at the airline desk in Indy didn't believe me but didn't push the issue. Guy in San Fran on the way home could not have cared less what was in there.

Saw the entrance to the Last Chance trail during the race on Sunday. Out of curiosity, what type of bridge designs are being considered for the creek crossing?
Really enjoyed the DINO race last weekend, but had a quick trail question. On the new single track section on the north end just past the firetower, we passed what looked like a rock formation with water seeping out of it. The opening in the rock almost seemed man made. Any idea what that was?

Ditto on what Dave and Fett said, and I will add my two cents.
The start at TRTP is a little interesting, as you start on the gravel road behind the parking lot. The "road" goes over two short hills, and I would be careful on the second one. I've seen people go over the top and then over the bars because they had a lot of speed and were not prepared for it and go flying.

Here ya go:
$30 bucks for a day and your dog gets socialized and then comes home and sleeps like a rock. Or at least mine does. Perfect for an all day ride to the
Westwood was good today. The tread was perfect. One muddy spot and that was all. The weeds were mostly good. The section on the east side between the power line crossing and the floating bridge was getting rough with low honeysuckle, etc. Wished I had brought my mini clippers along with me. The grass in some of the open areas (along the Big Dig, power line crossing and the upper part of the dam) was getting long as well.
I did notice a few reroutes where I could see new bench cutting done. Interesting to see technique differences between the original trail (built about 10 years ago?) and the reroutes.
Overall a great ride and workout.
