Fantastic 4 / Re: Nebo conditions
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:46:10 AM »
Tried to ride Nebo on Sunday.  With all the dry weather we have had you would think the trail would be semi-dry.  No, the usual climb from the parking lot to the Combs Road connection was very muddy and extremely eroded.  Several large trees down.  I did not go farther then Combs Road.  Even the small down hill along the ridge was eroded. 

Had friends that rode trail two weeks ago after the big storm, said it took them several hours.
That day I tried riding the fire road from Story to Greasy Creek.  Mistake.  Mud and Lake Monroe water level.  Had to bush wack.
Guess my trail selections are not the greatest.  Get tried of riding BC.  Have done FL several times this year.

I see that our illegal trail builders have made International news on GMBN a British web site.  They are bashing them for using weed killer and going outside authorities permission..  Check it out at gmbn.com.

Anything Maxxis.  Specialized is coming out with a new tire.  If they can get the TPI right they say it is a seller.

If you take the fire road from BC campground to Yellowood and turn right at the end of the single track onto another fire road with the sign that says "Do not enter" you will be at the top of Ski World hills.  I do not think they want you in that area.  Hence the sign.

Rants and Raves / First Aid Classes
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:51:37 AM »
There is an article on Bike Rumor about Bike Injuries.  When in California I was on a bike patrol.   One of the requirements was to have first responder first aid and CPR.  Might it be possible for the HMBA to organize such classes for individuals with a fee to cover costs?  Anybody interested in such classes?  This can be organized with Brown County EMS/Fire Department and the DNR.

Rants and Raves / Big Woods Brewery
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:41:50 AM »
Big Woods Brewery is opening a new brewing location with a tap room that is now open.  Since they are not brewing there yet, there will be no growler fills on Sunday and you must go to the old brewery.  The location is 148 Old St Road 46, Nashville.  It is located near the fairgrounds.
