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.

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.

Trail work day this Sunday @ 1030. 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.
