    Maybe we should give the trees a chance to recover first.


    I will probably be working Sat., not sure about Sun. yet. If not I'm game for anything. Plus the weather is supposed to start clearing up this weekend.(fingers crossed)

    Gmats if I can get the "pass", then I'll be out there at Kalopa. You want to meet a little earlier? 8:30?

    Yeah, I'm willing to start earlier. I'm an early riser but realize people have to drive out from Hilo so sometimes that might not work so well. Shall we settle on 08:30 then? And who ever can make it, make it. If no can, no can.

    8:30 sounds good to me. I like to wake up early too. Plus the earlier we hit the trail, the more I can ride before I have to head back home.

    That sounds tempting, but today is my turn to feed my mom. I'll go ride Kalopa on Sunday with you though.

    Oh, and today I spent a couple of hours clearing the last few trees up there. At the very top there was a BIG tree down in the middle of the trail. Took me about an hour but it's done.

    Before and After on both occasions. Sorry the 2nd set of pics are kinda blurry, was getting pretty dark in them trails. Sunday should be sweet!

    Excellent work Gmats. I really need to get my chainsaw running again so I can do my part to maintain the trails as well.
    The trails look pretty dry there, hope it stays that way.

    Nice work gmats. I recognize those trees. I guess we won't have to hike a bike over them this time.

    I made my way to waterfall hill today. It was beautiful up there. So i took this quick pic with my phone.

    Nice pic, looks like it was a nice day up there. It was quite overcast up in Kalopa yesterday, kinda dark but at least dry and not muddy. So nice to not have to clean the bike after the ride. I had just enough time to clear out the trees so we have some continuous trails to ride on.

    Yes, finally, after months of that big tree being there, it's now off to the side. Still have that little log thing to ride over if you want play.

    Kulani was awesome today. It was pretty dry cause Hilo was HOT today. I wasn't surprised to see aikane there. He beat me to the trail. So far I still have the greenlight to go Kalopa tomorrow. Hopefully the weather is nice out there.

    I gave this little bridge a try today. I got through it on my very first try. Then I went 2 for 3 after that. Of course I went otb when I missed it.

    Yeah that one is more intimidating, than difficult. The less you think about it, the easier it is to ride.

    Kalopa was awesome this morning, dry conditions made for some nice rides.




    Got to ride with some new/interseting people and see some great scenery. Big thanks to Gmats for showing us around.

    Nice pic......of my ass!

    j/k.

    Yup it was a great ride. Awesome weather and conditions so it made for an epic adventure. I had lots of fun. The Perimeter Trail was more fun the second time around. The Gulch Trail was a little hairy for me. I thought we did pretty good considering we went up twice. If I had more time I might have gone up a third time just to come down the P-Trail one more time.


    This is the only good pic I got.

    Excellent ride.

    Perfect trail conditions all around. I'm quoting someone from a couple posts up, except mine would be, if I had enough legs or lungs left I would have gone up for another run. I got the workout I expected and thensome. Thanks for reminding me I need to ride more trails.

    I rode these trails a long time ago and remember many more in your face limbs and leaves than were there Sunday. Thank you very much for the great and continued trail work, I can definitely tell the difference. I'll definitely be spending more time there.

    If anyone else is just browsing the forums, definitely catch a trail with any of these guys. You'll be well rewarded.

    Hey Jonas, whats up? Stop being so humble, you were making the trail look easy.
    Definite props to Gmats for keeping Kalopa a great place to ride.

    Hey Jonas, I'm glad you decided to make your presence known. It was a nice surprise to see somebody just show up to the ride. Hopefully one day you and gmats make it out to Kulani.

    Yes, some day I'll make it back to Kulani. Some great trails out there. Jonas, maybe one weekend we can schedule a trip out there, car pool?

    Who's riding this weekend? I might be able to ride on Saturday, a.m. up in Kalopa. Sunday definitely a no go for me this week. Slight chance on Monday, you guys have Monday off?

    Yeah I got Monday off. Still not sure about that day though. I would say 50/50 chance for a Monday Kalopa ride.

    I wasn't planning on working this Saturday, but they asked so I had to say yes.

    OK, looks like it's a go for me on Saturday. I'll be up in Kalopa around 08:30 for anyone wanting to ride.

    Gmats, check you PM as celebration of sorts is a mutual friend that wanted me to pass thy invitation to you.

    Honolii, that's awesome remote cam shots. How does it feel wearing it? It really gives the viewer a better perspective of the riding sensation.

    You guys will laugh at the simplicity of it all. Cool thing is if you have any small cam , GoPro, Point n Shoot, it can be jury rigged to work. I tested it with my iPhone first running around the neighborhood and it works great with it too.
    Total cost: Less than $10.00
    Cam angles: Priceless.
    It's light and the weight is negligable, just have to get used to NOT thinking about it. Fist couple times I was always looking for the cam, making sure it was thete, LOL!

    Are you looking for team members, or are you solo single speeding it? I've never been there but it would probably take me until then to be in any kind of shape to participate.

    I should at least be out at Kalopa in the am.
