    Was awesome weather. There are parts where some water is running down the trail, but we only got a few freckles of mud on us. Nothing major, nothing that would deface the trail.

    Funny you post this.

    I was there a couple weeks ago and noticed skid marks everywhere. I started thinking "Is it even possible to skid that far and that often. It's like someone was walking a bike, breaking, dragging the bike for 40 feet then laying off the brakes for another 20 feet...repeat on the entire trail.

    Sometimes I see kids walking on trails with a stick digging a groove continuously. This is what I though of at Hall, but with a bike tire size stick.

    I see that all the time too. But this could be just as legitimate...despite what the signs say.

    But here is a question, should it be left hand or lefthand?


    I say patotto, you say potato. I say Doudy, you say Dowdy, lets call the whole ride off.

    Counter-clockwise? That sums up his intelligence level as far as I'm concerned.

    it was my first visit up there and after riding it clockwise and then counter-clockwise to confirm it was the aforementioned doofer i saw doing multiple loops, i would have to agree that it's much more enjoyable clockwise

    post-rain and plenty dry enough to ride with only a couple of sets of tracks made the sleuthing easy

    the looks on the faces of the dewds pushing their bikes up bitterbrush were priceless as i dropped one of the more difficult sections on the rigid bike in my joeschitttheragman dad shorts and t-shirt

    it's easy to rode clean down rigid, but a new drivetrain is needed before i get a clean climb up it on that bike

    it's nice to have a good trail like that close to home

    That would then imply said subject was NOT a "fatso", correct?
