    That's great to hear Josh, glad it's coming together as we hoped!

    Great photos again today. Will see you out on the trail soon.

    Hey Josh, how was the shape of the lip on the jump into the berm after the super rad hip booter? I had to leave before I could test ride it and the dirt going into it was a bit sloppy anyway. If we want to shave more of a kick into it now's the time before it turns into concrete.

    It's not bad but could see how a bit more lip could improve the loft. The dirt was really good yesterday. Still moist through this shady area but packing in nicely. It will definitely be harder to do anything after this weekend. Come out Friday if you can swing it!

    Re: Demo Flow Scrapbook

    Hood Ornament

    I was in the Demo area today so I put the finishing touch on MBoSC's tool storage box:

    This badge makes MBoSC look like a pro outfit; which they are! Supplied by one of the many commercial donors (hey Drew want to give them props!?!?) to the project; this stainless plate was originally (as the story goes) a water-jet cut prototype branding iron for club tools; re-purposed as seen here. Would make a neat head-tube badge, ehh?

    Had my first "after" ride of segment #5; I must say that the photos posted here hardly do justice to the scale of the features on this trail---much more dirt had been moved than I had envisioned.

    Also hike-a-biked and partially rode segment #3; its features are even more lavish than segment #5 IMHO.

    Finally; more rain dancers please!!!

    I know Drew well enough to know he is about as happy as a human can be, living his dream life in the dirt.

    The berm shaper is Kyle! CCCMB alumni, now living his dream at SC bikes.

    Great to see people I know up there digging the flow.

    I'm trying to vote for the Demo flow trail, but get this cryptic message:

    The reCAPTCHA wasn't entered correctly. Please try it again.

    Maybe something to do with the numbers code? Is there a space needed between the two numbers?

    if you see two pictures with just numbers and no letters that is not recaptcha. it sounds like you're getting an error for "recaptcha" but being shown another captcha. refresh the page and you *should* get a new code with two separate words.

    Apparently my vote was accepted despite the reCAPTCHA error. I did get a few confirmation emails to click on for the vote to count. That only worked for the first email, the others responded that I had already voted (as expected - no double voting allowed unless you have multiple email addresses). Anyway, teh Arizona project was leading the vote by quite some margin. Come-on NORCAL mtbr make your vote count and support one of our local trails!
