Can someone update us on the Eagle Creek Town Hall Meeting held 12-19-18?...

Wrong thread, but about 3/4" of rain came down.

Trees down on GV- at the top of the second climb going CC at a trail sign, I think it was 13. Second one just after the bridge going CC.

Just a friendly reminder, these are still there and will require a chainsaw.

Are they welded or brazed? That's the first thing to determine to know who to look for to fix them.

So it's what was the "second climb" of Hobbs and the shortcut to HP.

Did I miss the notice here on the forums of the 2 way change and renaming?

While we are asking, what's the "Shelly climb"?

I assume VP Pence had the Aynes House reserved for his Columbus Xmas stay.

Yesterday on two separate occasions I came across people riding the trail in the wrong direction....
...Maybe ride counter clockwise on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Ride clockwise on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Or some version of that....

If people have trouble figuring out the correct direction to ride when the trails are always one way in the same direction, it seems like there would be a lot more confusion if the direction changed every other day.

User preference. If your lights are the same size, try it both ways.

Mine are not too far off in brightness. Wider beam on bars with a more focused beam on helmet.

Helmet light is always pointed where you look while the handlebar light brings your sight back to the trail quickly.

I just realized WHEN this became an issue to me.  It was after I started riding laps down Hobbs Flow Trail and up Hesitation Point....

Actually, I did stop.  I was up against the berm on the right and watched him try to go above me then change his mind and lay it down.

This, and all the previous incidents have occurred when I was climbing HP (i.e., going slow). ...

Well....it sounds like you went above and beyond as an uphill rider with the right-of-way and roughly half of the riders need to learn to ride within the rules and their abilities.

Hopefully this situation will improve when HFT opens and more of these riders use it instead of HP.

lol...not me, I try to watch ahead (or be ready to stop very quickly if the sightline is limited).

Seriously (not trying to be an a$$ here), I'm wondering why this repeatedly becomes a problem for you. Maybe you should consider stopping more often instead of counting on squeezing by. There are lots of us, experienced and noobs, that are not as comfortable squeezing past with both riders moving on narrow trails like HP with steep side slopes.

I agree with Fett.

I often pull off to the left/uphill side to clear the trail when STOPPING to let oncoming riders by.

When not stopping, I'll take whichever side the other rider gives me (usually the right) or whichever seems safer for both of us given the circumstances.

I don't assume everyone will follow unwritten or written rules. I'm the guy that often stops while climbing to let the downhill rider enjoy his ride uninterrupted. Sorry for breaking that "rule".

What I don't like is the "dick" that blows past me in a tight spot without slowing or even considering stopping to allow a safer pass.

Just looked it up about 435 grams per wheel in trail form...

FWIW...I believe that is the rim weight, not the wheel weight.
