A few of us went up and trimmed & weed whacked almost all of the new trail. The last part of the older trail (kintionki) has not been trimmed. All in all! The trails are in very good shape. A few of the log overs need some attention though. If you have not rode the new trail! ( the builders call it "Insanity" You are missing out on a 16/18 mile kick your Ass ride! Add the Blood Root trail & Snow trails for more miles or a cool down. I am Riding it tomorrow around 130 if anyone's got the time.

does anyone know if anyone has continued weed eating backwards from the wood banked turn?  I was going to finish that section up Monday, but I don't wanna make a 45 minute drive if somebody has already taken care of it.

I agree with Brian! It is probably the cross country team Coach.  Our high school cross country coach did the same markings up @ Rangeline, not knowing any better.

Weed wacked from the shelter backwards till I ran out of gas.made it about50 yds past the short track iintersect..

Typo, I meant May! Not March.
I'm still having trouble with the site. I'll try again tomorrow. If I can't figure it out by then. I'm done with it.

their website is not very user friendly. I tried searching rangeline and cannot find it. I tried entering my mileage as I rode it per day through March.  I was not able to do that, so I entered all of my May mileage under one day. It,s probably cheating to a degree, but I still rode those miles. just not all at once as it appears.

Been there done it. Be prepared to suffer!!  Most of all!! Get an up front starting position. I started mid pack and had to wait 15 minutes at a bottle neck where the road ends and the Single track starts. I blew threw 2 sag stops to recover some time. The best part is the 1 mile hike a bike up hill (not).
If I were in better shape, I would go with you.

Tasks will include: general trail clean up, replacing a water drain down by the river that the flood removed, putting dirt over fallen trees on Novice to make them a log roll over. You will need a shovel/rhino. Hand saw/prunning shears. This work will be quick with A good volunteer turn out.

Due to the abnormaly high snow fall!  This experiment is inconclusive. While some of the trail that was blown clean is DRY an equal amount is still WET.  Leaf covered sections are muddy while some leaf covered sections are dry. Regardless of your opinion on leaving the leaves on the trail or not! This winter was bad for the trail.

As my Friend (Jeff C) pointed out to me on 9 ride and my tube froze!   Put your Camel Back on first then layer up!  No more frozen tubes or bite valves.  So simple,  but over looked solution.
