    Just a clarification on the time. We are meeting at the ranger station at 9am. If you want to meet us at Mars Ct, then we'll be there 9:30-45.

    It was another awesome day for the Three Bottles Advanced Trail build. About 18-20 people today. There was another 2-way blue line finished and fine tuning of some of the features put in 3 weeks ago, and started on some new goodies. With another good turnout tomorrow some of the more advanced features could get in. So come on out tomorrow and join in the fun.

    Yea, a great trail day. Cleaning a nasty trail pails in comparison to building a chunk of one. Thanks to the Department of Agriculture and all you hooligans out there busting rocks. One fellow just moved here from Virginia and was digging before ever setting tire on trail. That's community, my friends.

    Great group today. Worked on the submarine rock section. Expanded options, a little different entrance, two drops, two rollers, improved berms.

    Thanks to everyone that came out this weekend. It's really taking shape!

    Now if we just get some moisture...

    Another good day, If you haven't been out to the trail days you're missing out. Its a lot of work but also a lot of fun.



    Three bottles is turning into a trail system rather then just a trail with features along the way. The 2 way trails allow riders to double back and session different lines. Me and Skelly tried looping everything and its definitely anaerobic trying to get the 2 way climbs in.

    I think one of the cooler things about the trail is the large variety of options. You can ride the same section 6 times and do a different route each time.


    Special thanks to Dude, for letting me borrow the banshee prime!!

    This roller line is pretty cool

    This guy took an alternate drop line, was cool to see someone push their limits, 3 bottles is already helping people build skills.

    No problem. I don't figure you for a 29er guy, but I hope it was good for a test roll anyway. Thanks to all those out there doing good work today. we had a great time riding, the trail is really shaping up. We are already looking forward to the next work day.

    Im actually saving up for a fs 29er right now. The next work day will finish the second blueline and the second black, the first black being sub rock. I plan on Riding after each build day is finished. It would be cool to do a big group ride out there.

    Wut? No 27.5 love?

    I figured a Pivot Mach 6 w/27.5 would be a killer NM tech trail eating machine.

    I stand corrected. Then maybe the prime was just the ride for you.

    Rumor has it there was some overnight precipitation in the east mountains. Just what the trail needed to pack down those squishy berms. Can anyone confirm?

    We got about an inch of snow up here. Every little bit helps.

    Rode the new sections yesterday and it is sweet!

    Kudos to all that worked towards making this a fun, technical trail. Lots of opportunity for progression, so it'll be fun for everyone.

    It'll be under construction for another 2 years. Phase one will be done this year. But because of the nature of the trail, multiple one way sections accessible by a long 2 way sections, it can be ridden before total completion. Currently there are 3 or 4 brand new fully rideable sections..

    get out and ride it!!

    Anybody know if the 3B area got much rain on Saturday afternoon? We rode it Saturday, and some of the transitions and berms were still really soft. It was just starting to rain when we left, I'm hoping there was enough rain to pack it all down.

    I hiked in there yesterday to check it out. Still pretty dry. We need a really good rain to do much. I like the new drop at sub rock. Hey Kerry. From where the new turn into sub rock would be also the perfect plact to turn into the advanced line I flaged with you last year with a nice drop and two rollers in a row. The first drop is just to the right about 20 yards. Take a look when your out there again. Theres one tree to cut at the bottom of the roller.

    I want to throw a reminder. This Sat and Sunday the 17thand 18th are the next Three Bottles Advenced trail work days. The basic trails are pretty much in and a little of the advanced lines are in. Time to get down to the really good stuff. The real meat of the build. We could use all the help we can get for this part of the build. Plus with the lack of any real rain, we need to get as much done as we can befor that dirty C word comes up. So make your pland now to be part of this awesome build. See you Sat and Sunday.

    Ok Pat, I'm going to need a doctors note. The Healing process is slower than I would like. But going well. Defnitally takes longer the older you get. Did get the ok to pedal around on roads. A little trail work will do me good.

    It was a really good day at the 3-B build. Lots of rock work went into a good size drop and big burm blow it. A couple other nice features and another Black Diamond line is complete and ready to hit. Then got a line cut into a giant Double Red Diamond huge roller. Tomorrow we will finish the roller and into a very rocky skills area. Going to be fun. If you've got time, come on out tomorrow. We could use an extra hand.

Also finished the line to the big roller. The first Double Diamond Trail! Get ready to pucker up for that one. Started into a cool rocky area that will test all your skills. It will be finished on the next work weekend next month along with more technical lines. You still have time to get in on this awesome build. Super big thankyou to everyone that came out this weekend. Everyone worked their butts off and got some real quality work done. Thanks AGAIN to the Greenside Cafe for those awesome burritos. Killer!

    Its really turning into a cool session spot. A true a la carte menu of technical riding It doesn't get mentioned as much but the uphill lines are all fairly hard, lung busters.

    I got out to check the conditions at 3-B today. The road from Mars Ct. was a bit on the muddy side on the way in but was good on the way out. All the rain over the last three days has done the trail good. All the rockwork looks great. Everything just needs to get some bikes on it and pack it in. Didn't see any other tracks on it.

    Hugs and Kisses to everyone who has put sweat equity into this project. We sesh'd the whole thing today over&over, over&over, over&over, over&over...you get the point. It should be good and packed now! I managed to find a few options that I think might have been unintentional, but they worked out really well and at least one of them left my britches a little soggy. lol

    I was noticing that the new Cajun Pine reroute from last year swings real close to where the new work has commenced. Any plans on making a connector in the future? Just a quick glance at it reveals quite a few boulder options that would tie in very well with the existing features. It would also eliminate flatland slog to the official entrance. Personally, I would not miss much of first half of three bottles given the success of this project.

    Anyway, thanks again to all that have helped out so far, and to those who plan an volunteering in the future. These kinds of trails don't build themselves.

    Got out there today, much better conditions than 2 weeks ago. Rain must have helped a lot. I guess Lost Dave beat me to it but the small drop is indeed hardtail friendly. I might have been psyched out a bit by seeing it prior to the dirt fill but it ended up being completely uneventful. I'm not complaining though. Not sure of the double red diamond drop/roller though. I pretty much said 'no way in hell' while looking down at it. Looking at the pictures makes me feel like a wuss; it looks like I could roller skate down it.

    A friend of mine was wondering if this weekend's trail days will be focused on 3 Bottles or elsewhere?

    I'm pretty sure that the Nat Trails Day on June 7th work will be on the Dead Man Connector. And then Back to Three Bottles in July. Kerry will probably post some info on this Sat. work.

    Yep, we'll be working on the connector trail this weekend (sat only) then back to 3 Bottles. It's too much logistics for a bigger event with non-regulars. The connected will be a great addition.

    If you're interested, we'll start at 9am at the old Deadman campground just south of Pine Flat on the east side.

    Dang it was great to get out on some trail again. My first real ride in 2 1/2 months. Been just riding up and down the road out of Mars Ct. Just kept it easy for now. None of the real fun stuff. But that's coming. 3-Bottles conditions are great. Can't wait to get back for the next build weekend in July. With the trails out of Mars Ct open again, access to 3-B is much easer. Go get you some.

    It's a pretty good booter, but you gotta muscle it a little if you lack the speed.

    While I was over at the Mars Ct PL to check on the closure I ran into Ryan with the FS. I asked about the FS trail work days at 3-Bs this weekend the 12th and 13th. He was not sure yet but thought the trail work days would go on as scheduled. As soon as I know I'll post. We could use all the hands we can get as we head towards the last part of this years build at Three Bottles.
    Hope everyone likes what has been done so far.

    Woohoo! And we're hoping Tres repeats his demo of how not to pick up a mattock lying on the ground. Yes Kerry, even when you're not around, we think and practice safety all the time...

    Well I'm having hernia surgery on Thursday, and the mattock incident certainly did not help. They really need to paint those handles bright red, or something.

    I'm hoping they postpone it for a week, actually.

    If I were to show up for trail work day this Saturday do I need to bring any tools? or do I just show up... I like what you guys are doing in the 3 bottles area as I am really enjoying working on my technical handling skills, I just feel guilty riding the trail not doing any work on it. and do I need to know anybody on the crew to be invited to work or is it just a show up kind of deal?

    Maximo, just show up. Make sure you wear long pants, good work boots/shoes, and sunscreen. Bringing your own water/food is always a good idea as well. The Forest Service provides everything else.

    Sure wish I could make it, but my weekend is booked with family commitments this time around.

    Please, don't be motivated by guilt. What an awful emotion. Just show up because you like hanging out and building features that you like to ride!

    I met with Kerry and Ryan today at Three Bottles trail. We walked through everything built so far to see how things are holding up and what needs to be modified to make it work better. A few changes are necessary but not much. Also some more cool features of the black diamond and double diamond variety. Prob this weekend and another next month will do this build for the season. See you this weekend.

    Saweet! I'm guessing with stage 2 restrictions still in effect, it would be ludicrous to request an A/C generator and a hammer drill (which I do own) to knock a little off the top of the big rock booter after the berm. I had hoped to build a nice big lander, and possibly do something with the tree we were originally going to take out of that line. Would make a nice log ride.

    Also, I had a brief discussion on FB with Kerry regarding a proposed gateway/access from Cajun Pine, just above the rocky climb coming from the South on the fire road. I know everyone is sick of hearing about it, but I do think that would make an awesome option for getting over to the advanced area. It would take one or two people just a couple of hours to get that section rideable. If I'm able, I plan on being there. Otherwise, thanks in advance for all the support from FS, and especially the volunteers!

    Had a good day on the build today. Took care of some things that needed a little work. Most of the time was spent on the old tec, rocky climb that is now a one way down. It is a really sweet line now. Two nice drops in a row. Not a big group today. But we got a lot done. Another build day tomorrow. We could use your help. Come on out and join the fun!

It's a bad a$$ line. Next months trail work days will finish up this project for the season. What a cool area this is turning into. Multiple lines for every skill level. You can easily spend a little time there just sessioning everything. Especially after the two new lines are complete. Have fun out there and be safe.

    I don't make all the trail building days, but every one I do make, there is Bob, Mrs Bob, and Steve. Wish I was as dedicated as they. Also busting rock today were Brian, a recent MTB convert, Sean, Tim and the dynamic duo, Kerry and Ryan. Ive spent the last 14 years working with federal civil servants (as a,contractor) and those two guys work more in one trail day than most GS work in a.... um, better just leave it there
    I hear August is the last hurrah for 3 Bottles building. Let's all show and make it a party to remember.

    Really appreciate all the hard work by everyone who made it out this weekend. Sorry I couldn't make it.

    It's probably already posted somewhere in this thread, but to make it easy for everyone, will someone please provide the dates for the August work days?

    Thanks,

    Glad I could finally contribute. First trail day I got stuck in customs in houston, next trail day was my birthday. Although I have a pissed off misses for ditching her on a planned weekend, Im stoked to see the progress and help build it.

    Are there any video or photos of anyone rolling that rock on the red expert line?

    On Aug 9th and 10th we will finish a new line that has a drop leading into another big roller. More fun options to test you.

    It was a lot harder the way it was before… Pretty easy now with that big dirt tranny.

    Agreed. However, this kind of input is desperately needed during process, not after. Like Stevie says, it would be nice to have a really good showing for the last weekend of this build. If you want your voice heard, please consider backing it with a little sweat equity. I'm truly inspired by the feedback so far, and I know some of us don't see eye to eye on a few of issues, but it would be a pity to not set that aside in order to gain some common ground. See you on build day!

    If I was complaining, maybe... Just a statement. As you do all the time here.

    Well, I for one am glad you weren't complaining, and believe it or not I'm equally inspired by your statements.

    Statements are welcome during work days, too!

    yea... sorry about that. at least it leads into jump. The original idea that paul and I had was to make it possible to drop it part way down the roller. never really came to fruition so we tride to make it g out into/over a rock gap... the thing shots you out with lots of speed . so in the end it is still a gnarly line if you take it at speed to the bottom.

    but theres no getting around the fact I sanitized it and I do feel bad about it.

    That dirt transition was a lot smaller when I was up there last weekend, but maybe it was all in my head... maybe next time I will get the courage to roll it. The area is really awesome love the loops. thanks everyone for putting in the labor to give us this system.

    After taking a look at both today, I think you'll like the new roller that opens Aug 9th. Check it out. After you turn on the new subrock line, the line to it takes off to your right. With the nice drop right befor it, you will really have to control your speed before the roller and then another small roller. The roller to the left of subrock has some good pucker factor to it as well.
    If anyone else knows of a spot that needs some tweaking, please let me know before the last work weekend this year. Aug 9th and 10th. All input is welcome.

    So, I rode up on the dbl blk diamond roller today. I hate to beat a dead horse, but man, that is not an easy roller. My buddy Jeffe walked away from it, and that's pretty rare. It looks a lot different than it did 3 weeks ago. Rain must have settled it some. Have you been up there in the last few weeks, FNG? It may still be easy for you, but at least it's harder than it was.

    Also, I see where the new line comes in above sub rock, but didn't have much time to hike it. I was weary of riding in due to the Vando Tape that was strung up in front of the entrance.

    Can't wait for the next build day! Hoping for more rain, so the terrain is easy to sculpt.

    See you fellas on the trail.

    -B

    I noticed someone worked the lander on one of the drops after the rocky climb. It flows really well going into the next drop. Thanks!

    The next and last 3-Bottles build days are this weekend. The 9th and 10th of Aug. These will be the last work days this season for the 3-Bottles Advanced trail project. The support for this project has been great to say the least. I want to thank everyone for their hard work to make this one of a kind project a success.
    We would love to have a big turnout for the last two days to finish this project with a bang! There is still an awesome new line to finish and some finishing touches to do to some existing stuff. A big turnout will help getting everything wrapped up and ready to (HIT THAT $h!t)

    9 am at the Tijeras Ranger station or 9:15 at the Mars Ct PL. Come join the fun. See you there!

    Steve, thanks for the update and reminder. My plan is to start at the Tunnel parking lot at roughly 8 AM Saturday and ride up to 3-Bottles to join in the trail work fun. My likely route will be Birdhouse to Tunero descent to Otero and then up Gnasty and Blue Ribbon to 3-Bottles. If any of you are interested in joining me for the ride up, feel free to reply or PM me. Thanks!

    I'm finally going to try and get there to have some Santa Fe sweat in the project. I'll probably be there Sunday. I might join the climb up, I still don't know my way around there solo.
    nix that, livin la vida bandos is a good idea when you're on a Mojo HD

    Chris, just to clarify, I'm planning to climb up and work on Saturday. Not sure if someone else will be doing a climb on Sunday. If you can make Saturday, would love to have you join us. So far there is one other and myself.

    Best,
    ABQ Clyde

    Yeah I caught that, should have edited my message. Possible to give directions if I need to go solo or anyone else riding up? Maybe there is a Strava route or segment I can follow?

The last line we are working on is a double diamond so we decided to beef things up after the second roller. We did a lot of big rock work on the transition off the roller into a big burm. There is about two hours of work left on this last line and fine tune a couple of other spots and call this a done deal. If the weather holds up tonight, tomorrow will do it.
