    Levis Mound Skills Loop-Lucys Loop Update

    Just got in from Levis finishing another Skills loop element-"Super Skinny" It's a 24' long section 7" wide with a 8" drop/step down in the middle. About12-16" off the ground. Also modified the first teeter, so it would ride better-that's 12" X 12' with a 12' lead up ramp.

    Next on the list will be installing the second teeter, and 2 more skinnys- a 10" wide X 30' three step oak one and a single 12" X 14' oak plank. Hopefully I can get the rock step ups done this week also. It's starting to take shape!

    sounds awesome!

    as a local rider looking to ride Levis Mound trails for the first time, do you have any updated pictures of any of the trails? I know there are quite a bit of trails, but any 'highlight' reels of them?

    What do you mean as "local?" I have a ton of photos, but it would take me a while to upload them to a web, then link them. If I get a chance, I'll try.

    Here are some pictures from Lucys loop as we're building them. They are now painted also, just to protect the wood. Six of the elements are now completed.

    Well, the trail/course is on a small mound, so I'm trying to take advantage of that. Right now we have in place:
    1. A ramp to Teeter near the start.
    2. A 36' wood climbing ramp up the hill side.
    3. A 90degree wood climbing turn-slightly banked to finish the climb.
    4. A super skinny, 2 X 12' sections, 7" wide with drop down step.
    5. A 180 wood banked corner ramp, dropping down a level on the side hill.
    6. A 12' ramp, with bail out split off ramp, leading to a 30' red pine log skinny.
    Those are done as of today.
    *We are ready to add 2 more teeters, with onto/off ramps.
    *another 24' skinny, this one oak and 10" wide
    * a 12" X 14' oak skinny
    * Log hops
    * Downhill pumps and or ramps
    * breaker rock section
    * vertical log skinny (riding the ends of firewood size logs 1/2 buried.
    Those are the next elements to go in this next 2 weeks or so.

    Which trail are these on or close to? I'd love to give them a run but couldn't find the Lucy Loop on the map.

    Lucys loop starts at the intersection of Lower Glen and the dump. It won't be on a map yet, because it is still being added to. LL will actually take over the first part of Lower Glen and LG will be re-routed just east of it by this weekend.

    Sweet!
    I am going to be up there Sept 12-13.
    But, I sadly do not have the skills to enjoy Lucy Loop, but I am betting my brothers friend and maybe my bro' will attempt/succeed on it. Look for a couple of office jockey yuppies that are decent riders, that'll be them!

    Can't wait for this weekend! Lucy's looks like it'll be a fun little challenge. Old Oi, look for the Singular demo bikes, that'll be me and my family.
    Just a regular guy.

    If I am on Lucy's Loop, most likely I will be there to take pictures. I am too clutzy to handle a see-saw and other fun things!
    I'll be on a 2002Specialized S-Works FSR xc, red and white. Punk band stickers on my helmet and bike (Misfitis, Circle Jerks{see my Avatar} GBH,etc.) I should be on the trails by 12 noon Saturday, and be there until exhausted (3-4 hours, approx.). Rest and eat, and ride a bit more. Sunday around 10 a.m. - 2p.m.
    Hope to see some MtBR members up there.
