    Brought to you by R2

    I just wanted to say thanks to the Ridges to Rivers trail crew for the new features up at Eastside. The rock ride is beautiful and the log ride-over is rock solid. I am always a little leary of riding over small diameter logs but this one is super stable.

    Thanks for all the other work up there as well.

    Thanks,

    Mike e.

    I like the rock structure, but I don't understand what purpose it serves. While it is neat and somebody worked very hard to build it, I think that it would be more impressive if it took you over a difficult log, stream crossing, or some other natural trail feature that they were trying to make a rideable line over/around.
    I stopped driving my bike into my garage - I'm now protected with Roof Rack Ranger app for my iPhone.

    bikerx40....at least it's a start. There are currently plenty of log rides on the eastside area gapping stream crossings and holes.

    My compliments to you IB and R2R. I was wondering when there was going to be a rock feature in that area. I remember talking about it a long time ago (like before everyone knew about these trails) that this section needed a rock ride.

    I see the Endo is holding up well.
    Just ride down there and jump off something for crying out loud...

    I'm not too enamored with blatantly artificial features and that row of rocks stands out like a turd in a punchbowl. Those rocks might have been better off creating curving flow with a more natural feel. Whatever flips your burgers though.

    This first half of Eastside is a bit of a joke really with its blatanly artificial stunts that suddenly appear. There are better and more technical and much more natural features hiding in the woods with greater penalties for failure.

    But what do I know. I like stinging nettles, poison ivy, snakes and think wolves belong in Idaho. Keeps the focus.

    Precisely and to the point.

    As you say, you never jest, but none the less, there are times when I find myself in a whole new, excrutiating world of hurt (actually my broken ribs) when I peruse these threads and come across your most humorous attempts at being serious.

    I'm no pro but why build a ramp on the sides of the fallen tree? That seems to easy, why not hop over it or get off your bike and walk over it? more of a challenge? Maybe, Maybe not...not really sure??EasterBunnyXLarge.jpg

    If R2R did this I say good for them. I helped with the repair work this spring on Bobs Trail and enjoyed the time I spent with their trail crew. Good group.

    Agreed. Bart is a stud and Dave is really easy to work with if you communicate with him and remember he is dealing with the multi use limitations. A good group of guys who's job benefits us all.

    Thanks for the really nice log skinny on sinker creek too.
    Its about 12inches wide and 10 ft long . Serves no purpose but , breaks up the mind numbing climb from bogus drop.
    By not allowing the progression of trails your cheating everyone out of their potential.

    Just returned from Sun Valley. Greenhorn Gulch has 4-5 logs to ride over the streams. Several have a fairly respectable penalty for failure - 5' drop to the water and rocks below. I am happy to say I cleared each one.

    Skinny mania

    Sup Bro's, has anyone rode the 5" wide by 3+ mile long skinny 1mile away from Velopark? There's a couple breaks in it but if you have bunny skills it's an easy transfer. This street stuff breaks up the monotany of my rides before hitting the trails. If it already exists, why build it? Why not make it harder?

    Sorry to mess up your fun, this urbanized trail stuff is like yr 2000 for us outdated doods. Back home we still ride in wagons and our internet speed is on DOCSIS 3.0 at 150,000 meg downloads. I need to get up to speed, can yall help me out. Anyone notice a flatlander scored 13th at the Leadville 100?? Weird

    Deja vu all over again.

    Genius'er is at least entertaining. Kudos. Anything to break of the monotony of groupthink.

    Snore.

    I like my kudos with a side salad.

    At the public bath we call Genius'er "Lettuce Head" as a kind of pet name. It's not what you think and it's been an inside joke for almost 8 years now. Something about how he folds the towels.

    We all miss that little purple testicle of his. These are sad times. End of days, really.
