    Yes, JORBA has done trail work there. Unfortunately, progress has been very slow and the park is still officially off limits to mountain biking. We have not given up the fight for the right to ride at South Mountain so don't give up hope.

    I used to see the same guy. Sounded like a garbage can rolling thru the woods.

    There is a good chance that was my friend Pete. He had a MC San Andreas (still does, just a new version). We used to ride South Mountain 4/5 days a week.

    Once we ran into another guy at SM with a Mountain Cycle with a garage built fork, rear shock, pedals, and brake levers.
