    post canyon... daaaaamn!

    First time out there today; so much to explore.
    Didn't see any bears but did run across some rather ferocious drops and kickers!
    Gotta bring the pads next time so I can kick it up a notch!

    Yeah, I often think the worst thing about Post -- and also the best -- is the lack of signage. You just have to ride it and learn what goes where. Finally took that new trail that connects Seven Streams with Spaghetti Factory yesterday. Holy switchback!!! Fun new addition, though.

    Dilligently looked for that bear, but didn't find him either. Maybe next weekend . . . . (or Wednesday morning, depending on whether I decide to ride or salmon fish before work).

    I rode that section with a friend yesterday too. Those switchbacks are incredible. Props to the Post Canyon builders.
    I ride at ludicrous speed

    They cut out that drop on Middle School and the second one on Drop Out and closed the trail with the Ridiculator. Very PO'd about this! Is IMBA behind the "wussifying" of Post? What's the story???

    Disappointed,

    Really? that drop on middle school was fun until I hit it a little fast and slapped my front down so hard I couldn't save it.

    That sucks I liked those drops. They took those out but left the crazy stuff up high? I noticed in another video the wall ride is finally done?

    Great clip maing! Captures Post riding and Family Man area quite well, but man you took some bad hits on that, ouch. And dude on yellow bike looks to have had a rough time on some of that as well. Good stuff nonetheless, way to go for it and great edit! Thumbs up!
    Ride On!

    Middle School Ladder Drop: Alot of beginner/Intermediate riders were hanging their chain rings up on the end or last stringer of the ladder and going over the bars. It was happening enough that GFA(I assume) did the right thing and removed it.

    There has been quite a bit of tear down activity going on at Post, but I see as a good thing. Several of the stunts/hits were past their time so its good to see that someone is looking out for us riders at Post!
    Ride. Dig. Party.
