Bridge over troubled water
« on: March 13, 2011, 09:53:44 PM »
This section of Novice trail floods every spring after snow melt.  This year was no different.  Several things have been done over the years to keep it dry, but nothing really worked.  We fixed the problem permenantly on 3/13/2011.

Video:

Some finishing touches need to be done, but it is ridable and NO MORE WET FEET.

If you wait for good weather to ride in Indiana you will be waiting forever.

Very nice job! I would really like to start helping with trail maintenance. I ride Rangeline just about weekly and would love to help out. If there is anything I can do please shoot me an email rmknotts@bsu.edu

Also when will the group rides start up again? I didn't get to attend many last year and will there be any night rides?

Thanks for the compliment.  And thanks for your offer to help.  We will work almost every weekend now until race season starts.  Right now we are repairing flood damage.  No real projects.  We discuss during the week what is next priority then decide late in the week.  Once we get the flood damages fixed then we can start planning projects ahead of time and letting people know what we will be concentrating on each week.  Please keep on eye on the Upcoming Trail Work thread.  We will definately need help building with biggest project yet, The Pier.  More info on that later.

As far as the group rides.  It's been kind of tough because of the cold, rain, and water crossing (which is now fixed).  Now that Daylight Saving Time gives us an extra hour of light we might start it up in a couple of weeks (depending on weather).
