Fort Harrison State Park / Re: Recent unauthorized trail work
« on: February 14, 2018, 06:05:21 PM »
well, it's now all over the local news...

The sailing club knows and has expressed concern to the park manager. I don't know more than that.

They pay a lease to the park to use the land. I don't know the terms of that lease.

Lots of buds killed by freezes this year. Early unseasonable warmth got a lot of plants started early, then a freeze would kill the buds. I have seen the results of this in my garden this year. I see no reason why it would be different for trees in the woods

NICE. Maybe a cleaning station?
I would prefer some shade trees and picnic tables near the north parking lot. Like Versailles has. Maybe even a shelter. Some water at the skillet. water at the top of HP. Fix the showers at the pool.

Since we are asking.

Town Run / Re: Access points to trail
« on: April 16, 2017, 11:30:38 PM »

Does anyone know if there are other access points to the trail besides from the main parking lot on 96th?    I will be down near the Keystone shopping center and am wondering if I can ride the bike from there and access via River Road or Crystal River drive.  Thanks!

There is a service access there, but park users are not supposed to use it. The residents in the neighborhood get grumpy and may call the police.

You can ride, but do us all a favor and enter the park on 96th.

I had a ton of fun at the Sedona mtb fest. They had a few cool things we could apply to the Epic, but we do a few cool things that Sedona lacks, too.

I have found that for tires that refuse to hold air, oftentimes getting out and riding a little around the neighborhood helps to get things distrubuted and sealed up.

But it depends on the tire. Some just won't work, and some non-tubeless tires are a breeze.

I am running a 30t oval chainring and an 11-46 sunrace cassette on my fatbike. Having that low range is great for those steep nasty climbs, the super long grinds at altitude where there are real mountains, and whel slogging through deep snow where you have to pedal going downhill.

The rest of the time, it means I can ride with my chain in a straighter chainline and have less wear to the drivetrain.

Mine is Verizon...can you hear me now?!?!   ;)
Yeah, and that is why. From what I understand Verizon handles bc the best. Other carriers are even worse down there and may not even get anything on the ridges for a data connection.

The cell reception issue depends heavily on your carrier, too

Cell reception is spotty enough at bcsp that i would not rely on anything that requires a cellular data connection to send location updates.

There are many phone apps that have this functionality, but they work best in areas with reliable cell connection.

Do yourself a favor and get a spot for this.

Versailles State Park / Re: Last Chance Trail
« on: November 14, 2016, 11:17:59 AM »
There is a long climb after the creek crossing. Last chance takes tou to a gravel road at the back boundary of the park. Hang a left, and the gravel road takes you back into the park when you cross a gate. You will pass a cemetery on the tight. A bit further down, you will encounter the new loop. I forget the names of the trails there right now, but they loop around and connect near the far end of the gravel road, by a bunch of stone ruins of an old camp.

How do forks always end up on backwards

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
That is how most are when they are lifted out of the box. They fit better without removing the fork entirely. You are supposed to rotate the stem (and usually flip it).

The DNR did not really spend much time thinking how they would enforce this thing when they implemented it.

Real enforcement is supposed to start in 2017, whatever that winds up being.
