    Turnbull ride with a fellow MTBR'r

    Met up with vtwin650 for his first visit to the trail. We were met with nice weather and even though we came across quite a few hikers all of them where very nice and often moved aside even though they had the right of way. Stopped to talk to a few since I was umm waiting lol.
    The downhills are pretty rutted since my last ride up there which I found fun. Maybe vtwin650 can give you his perspective being new to the sport and being his first time there.

    It was a blast! Some of the trails were rutted bad (from a beginners point of view). Im sure some of the regulars don't think it's bad but some of the climbing was tough for a noob. Other than and the hikers it was a perfect day to ride. Thank you Joey for putting up with my slow ass and for all the pointers!

    It'll be a bad year for trail conditions I think, with late season conditions starting to show in April; bet it was warm on Turnbull.

    At 8 id say we had great weather. Even when we hit the end at 11 it was still cool enough.
