Town Run / Re: TRTP Trail Conditions

Any idea if there will be any night riding during the snowy days this season? We did it a few years ago and it was great!

Obviously the colder night temps help keep the trail hard packed. Just wondering.

Town Run / Re: Helmetless riders at TRTP
« on: July 28, 2012, 04:01:15 PM »
We used to ride the "old" trails years ago, with baseball caps and nothing more.  So 7 years ago when I first began riding TRTP I thought, "Hey, I've done this before and never had a problem why do I need a helmet?" Plus I thought I looked like a dork with one on.  A few early close calls with trees made me think otherwise.  Then came the times I actually have fallen, once on tetanus hill, various slides on powdery dry trails, got clobbered by a low hanging vine, hurt even with my helmet.  I couldn't have imagined how things would have turned out if I didn't have my helmet on.  Especially the low hanging vine, on the return trail a few feet before the Talking Tree on the right side.  I was flying, saw it at the last second, it hurt so much I actually had to stop to clear the stars outta my head.  Thought I had a concussion. I shutter to think of what would have happened to my noggin had I not been wearing that helmet.  It is a personal choice, but I hate to see anyone get hurt because they didn't have one on.  And really, I get that you may not be able to afford one, you can have my old one if you really need it, replacement cushions are only a few bucks.
