    Noble Blowdown

    Lot's of new blowdown on Noble from the last round of storms. Watch those high speed blind corners!



    It's DirtCrab!!!

    I was really saddened to see that the nice old oak, up at the wall (Penny Pines) got downed during the last storm. I've spent many a lazy, hot, summer afternoon, napping on the wall... in the shade of that grand old oak.




    Intersection of BLT and the BMX track.

    -OT a little.

    Is that first picture "Widowmaker." If so, is that line a good one for those that are classified as "pansies." I have ridden Noble three times and I walk that section everytime because I chicken out.

    Same at Granite Springs

    Rode Granite Springs Cuyamaca the other day and the number of trees covering trails was staggering. We had to stop no less than 15 times to navigate around them. Just a matter of time after all of those fires ripped through that area....bummer for now..

    A shame about the oak. I hate it when trees go down! They are so much apart of a great ride!

    What would Xena do?
    She'd clean the whole section,you know that!

    So is the new rule that the trees are not cleared and trails go around the downed trees?

    That's a section right after the last of the switchbacks. Just a few yards, upstream from the first stream crossing.

    Here's the Widow.

    It's probably going to be awhile before the forest service can get to all of these. There's probably more after last night's 60 mph winds.

    The exception. Not the rule.
    Obviously, you're not a golfer.
