    Sweet! Do you know what the trail loops will consist of?

    All the loops will be arrowed. The beginner loop has white arrows, 6-7 miles of mostly dirt roads with some gentle singletrack. The advanced loop will be maybe 20-22 miles. With some hero loops added. Depends what out trail gurus work out. Bing yer legs. The chili is tasting great.

    Are you guys leaf blowing all the trails like last year as well? That made it real fast and fun out there as well as safer.
    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.

    The trail elves are out there blowing and raking the route. It's a monumental task but the majority of the route should be dialed. Hope to see you there.

    Great ride and route. Thanks to everyone who made it happen. Woulda been kinda crazy if this storm had rolled in a day earlier.

    I rode the route late in the day after the trails were a little slick and a bit adventurous and was really impressed with the fun riding. Fun day!

    Great route planning, had fun. Wish it were less slick out there, went OTB twice and called it at about 10 miles.

    I OTB'd twice myself! First OTB for me was at low speed, but the second was at the top of a long rock stair decent. Somehow kicked free of the bike and stayed on my feet doing my best to imitate something that Wile E. Coyote would chase. A few new scratches on the bike to be proud of now!

    Great ride, did 95% of the Expert loop (missed part of it riding out with one of the guys in our group that ripped his rear der off) including the Hero Loop. Hard to make miles at HPSF! Relentless is a pretty good description.
