    Who RUINED Horseridge!!!!!

    Who was the MUPPET that decided to take trail building into their own hands and completely ruin the Sand Canyon portion of the trial!

    I will try and detail this as best as possible. So leaving the fence (to go down) you go down a bit, than a little pedally section, a bit more down, and than a bit of pedally rocks on generally flat ground, probably a hundred yards or more from the newer re-rout as you enter the canyon is where I am talking about. If you have ridden this enough, you should have an exact idea of where I am talking about.

    WHO SMOOTHED IT OUT!!!! it is now 4 feet wide and smooth as Phils Trails. This is absolute nonsense. If you cannot ride it because of the minute technical difficulty it had before, you know, those hard objects that were around the trail, then please ride somewhere else. Don't just grab your spade with a hair in your ass and change it. But wait, let me guess... 29'er?!?! Please punch yourself in the face multiple times , and stay the fack away form sand canyon ya' clown, better yet, the parking lot has some holes you should fill. You can at least make your self and your spade useful.

    Why do we need easy trails, do you suck that bad that you can't even challenge yourself anymore!? Maybe you need a road bike, I hear its pretty smooth going, and your wheels will still be big enough....

    I will be going out soon and attempting to put the trail back to its original state.

    Sorry Ashbag but I think that was Phil that "Smoothed out" that corner. I think it adds a little extra to the canyon. Not that it needed it but it was not that bad. And please don't Fack with 29'ers. My ridged 29'er can handle anything you can throw at it and more.

    Okay, ignore the 29er comment. The only riders I have heard complain about horsridge and the rocks, are 29ers. So I do have a backing there.

    I'm also not talking about the re-routed corner, I like that new bit. It's the stuff before. Looks pretty new. I just don't undestand who decides to jack with stuff. Phil can stay at his own trails. If anything, make use of the land and build some more trails. There is so much terrain that could be used to make some difficult trails. But I guess that would involve rocks and stuff.

    SOO Phil is a 29ner????????? and can ride anything but still needs to smooth out a perfectly good trail. We don't need another Phils trail we have one already - we need some more technical stuff and don't need to mess with the existing stuff!!!!!

    Just make sure her helmet is secure, do they make shin guards that small?
    Also when you crash try not to land on your back, other than that she should be good.

    Went to Horse Ridge on sunday and saw what all the talk is about. I will begin with thanks to those that put in their time and effort...However, I feel that the work that was done should NOT HAVE INCLUDED THE REMOVAL OF ROCKS. To me, mountain biking is an activity where you sometimes just have to let it roll and ride what is laid down under the wheels. Horse Ridge has rocks and it should always have rocks, it is that simple. We here in Bend are lucky to have a number of devoted trail stewards and an amazing set of trails, but what we have in miles we lack in technical difficulties. There are few trails around that present a reasonable technical difficulty and the ones that we have [in my humble opinion] should remain as they are.

    As the trail steward for track out of Swampy I care about the responsible maintenance and expansion of our trails and feel that we need to come to an understanding about matters such as Horse Ridge. I would like to have a discussion with those that preformed the work, to gain insight on their goals, objectives and future plans.

    These are just my opinions and there are no more valid than yours.

    Matt.

    Hey, the reason we all bought 29"ers is precisely because they are better in the rocks. Why would we 29"er riders want to take the rocks out? We love the rocks! They're more fun than on your diameter-challenged bikes.

    And back on topic, I loved the rocks on Horse Ridge and am not happy about their removal either.

    Just rode @ Horse Ridge today, and let me assure you there are still plenty of rocks to pick through on the singletrack. The section the OP is speaking of is roughly a 1/2 mile in length, and was "smoothed out" in order to add some drainage and prevent further degradation of this downhill portion of the trail.

    For all you riders b!tching about how smooth Horse Ridge is now......Get off your 3-6" travel La-Z-boy, FS, all mountain, throw-my-bike-down-the-side-of-this-hill huck machine and get into something simple. Go single speed and rigid, hit up a loop at Horse Ridge, then come talk to the board about how "smooth" the trail system is out east. Make sure you take your foot out of your mouth before posting so we can understand you.
