    Can't the crew go and clear Huffman Peak instead of workin' on horsey trails?I'm sure this sounds awful of me,but who wants to ride Stub over something special and ignored like Huffman.I am sure that I am OT...here is the apology " I apologize".Now...clear Huffman please.Does anyone actually ride at Stub Stewart?

    The event is more about skill-building that can be transferred throughout the build season to other trails.

    Stub is a great host facility-- relatively close to Portland, structures to house the event training, trails that need to be built and a facility with a very accommodating land manager.

    Stub has potential-- and bike-specific trails in addition to the "horsey" mulit-use trails-- it's just a little "green" right now.

    If we sign up the city leaders, do you think they would go? They could sure stand to learn a thing or two about bike trails.

    Sounds like a fun event!

    I'm in. I tried to get down to Eugene a few years ago when they came through, so I'm happy for another chance.
