    Core Creek - Activities Planning Thread

    Guys,

    The other thread was getting VERY long so I decided to start fresh....


    Mike, I'll snap some digital pics of the materials that I have and will e-mail you copies so we can decide on how best to put them to use for trail maintenance.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this? (location, etc....)

    Is anyone interested in seeing another ladder ramp built??

    wheres all the core creekers at? usually this thread is blowin up!

    just got back from the funnest ride of my life, went with a new friend whos more experienced, it was a whole different experience, someone who i dont have to beg to go ride, and someone who likes to do more laps.

    rode around until dusk and it was that bad, i actually rode faster when there was less light becuz i wasnt sure how much time i had to get out.

    i also tried clipless pedals to see what the hype was, and im sold on them!

    Clipless are great!!!

    I've been so wrapped up in different things that my bike has been sitting in the barn for quite a while now... I need to dig it out and get active again...

    When will you be hitting CC again?

    I was there Sunday and today, had a blast. Was hoping to get some more rides in this week, but they're calling for some wet weather, we'll see I guess.

    Almost rode right up the back of a big bullfrog today! Bugger was sitting right in the middle of the trail, I thought it was a rock and realized at the last second it wasn't. Just missed it.

    Hey den9. Sometimes I ride solo, usually just at Core Creek because it's so close to me, but I am a member of an online group called the Singletrack Attack Mountain Bike Group (it's a Meetup.com group), and I do various rides with them too. We were just at Mercer this past Saturday.

    I mostly work part time and I have a flexible schedule too, so I'm lucky because I can ride during the day (usually).

    By the way, to get back to Buzzhogs original post here, whenever you guys are planning any trail maintenance you can count me in.
    Have never performed trail maintenance before (remember, I'm new), but more then willing to pitch in to keep the trails fun and safe.

    one of the boardwalk or bridges has a missing plank, not a big deal but it could lead to a tire falling into it

    Next weekend, 12/9, if nice might be a good day for some TM and a ride. We can put my bridge in place and fix some of the boardwalks. Frankly, in the spring, I think we should rip out all of the crappy boardwalks and pallets and build some nice stuff in their place. If we put together the Core Creek Mountain Bike Club stationary, Lowe's will give us free pressure treated lumber.
