    The Lair seems to have been working out all winter...

    ...or it injected steroids. I took a peek today and it's all puffed up!

    Frost heaves. Soil is probably in a fragile condition and shouldn't be ridden...

    Don't worry, I didn't ride it. I was just moseying by and felt like looking. The jumps had a growth spurt!

    Nick, and I did some minor work out there last week, but until it stops getting so cold at night and stops the cycle of producing frost heaves as sans soucie stated its not going to be pretty out there. We will be having a spring work party in the coming months once the weather is on our side, and will post the info.

    I know you didn't, I just wrote that for the benefit of others. :-)

    Seems each Spring the soil on Westside trails goes through a freeze-thaw cycle that makes it swell up but there's big air pockets just below the surface. tough to ride and possibly damaging to the tread. Weird, tho.
