    yep, i ended up going. I was there week 1 and havent missed a week. I suck and i am slow, but it is still fun nonetheless. I really need a tune up on my bike. The chain keeps jumping or derailer keeps trying to shift or something when i put a lot of force into pedaling.

    Glad to hear it. You don't need to tell me about sucking wind. I don't think I could get one 6 mile lap done so I have not gone. As far as the chain, you need to adjust your high and low limit screw settings. But, I think the main issue sounds like you may have bent your derailleur hanger itself. I had same problems as well. Post next time your heading over. I usually like to go early before it gets hot and busy. For last week I have been trying Devou out, ya I need to stop 3 or 4 times before I get to top.

    Did you make it this week? I went Tuesday and Thursday morning the trails were in great shape. I ran a 13:39 Tuesday morning, personal best. Found a kickstand lost from Wed night near the wooden bridges.

    Yep a was out there this week do. I avg 15:30 lap times so I'm pretty slow. Of course that's with pulling to the side to let others pass or getting stuck behind someone. Someone else mentioned that they saw a kickstand by the bridge too lol

    I am sure I would be right with you, yes I forgot about getting out of the way and that burns a lot of time. I will try for next week. C- class one lap. Maybe you can tell me how you go over the log t-pee down by creek. I hit it hard and got bucked almost "OTB". I can roll over it ofcourse.

    You can make 2 laps I'm sure. If I can anyone can lol. I don't think anybody hits that log jump to be honest. I have always just gone to the right of it. I should be there next week. I'll be the guy in the black Tacoma and the black diamondback 29er
