    Beware the Bars on 5

    Rode down trail 5 yesterday and its a good thing I was warned about the newly rebuilt water bars. I usually come tearing around that corner that leads into the steep pitch on 5 just above the power lines. Some BIG water bars there and terrain that is steep and not conducive to quick stops. I mean big, like project movies on big, so keep it cool until you see them for yourself.

    hmm

    Water bars are good; they change up the trails (you don't want dirt sidewalks do you), slow erosion, and slow dudes from blasting down trails. Sweet!

    Don't think anybody is complaining about them. Figured a heads up was due as those suckers are big and could easily surprise somebody who thinks they know the trail and the speeds it can be ridden.

    speaking of astronomical, I wonder if they can be seen from space...
