    I saw the pics on the FB page. It looked like it was a blast. I wanted to check it out but had to be out of town for the weekend. I did a few races there when I used to ride and they were always a blast but I don't think they were quite as organized and attend as it appears yesterdays race was. I hope to be out there for my first time in many years next weekend. I am looking forward to seeing the new Markham. Thanks for the hard work you guys have put in. I hope to be able to help out soon.

    The event was huge amounts of fun albeit tiring for the crew. I got there at 5 AM with a friend of mine and the rest of the crew were not far behind.. With each race we do, the club gets better at doing things. This time we had to really be on the ball as it was the first night time ride allowed by the county @ Markham.. All went well and so there will be another 12 hour next year.
    Hope to see you on the trail!!

    If you see someone riding what is probably the only Airborne Hobgoblin down here, that will be me.

    Sunrise is when the park is open and you can ride. The park closes at sunset. Same in the weekends.

    It is NOT OPEN yet pending the county's approval. We do expect to open it up this weekend though, so keep fingers crossed..

    Awesome! I haven't been able to make the trek down there in a month or two but I'm hoping to go a couple times over winter break. I'd love to ride all the changes that were made that have been talked about.

    Got in my first ride this morning on the new bike. I spent 45 minutes checking out mostly blue trails and the occasional black, by accident and had a blast. Only one fall which draw a little blood, remindiing me of when I used to come home from riding when my kids were little and they would ask mom why dad liked biking when he always came home with bloody shins. Not a bad ride considering its been at least ten years since I've been out there. I hope to make it out tomorrow. Congrats to you guys for putting these trails together!

    Oh. My. Gosh. Outback Extension is awesome! Rode Markham for the first time since early November and really appreciated the changes and work done to not just outback, but the entire trail system. Great work, especially on Outback. that little drop there is now my favorite part in the entire trail system!

    We're scheming/plotting a similar treatment for Crime-scene....

    Thanks!!

    If all you riders really like what we have done, please lend a hand for what we are about to do...
    There are some MAJOR changes planned that will add a lot of yardage to the trails. There are a few re-routes planned and if we get a lot of help, this will happen sooner rather than later.
    We had a planning session yesterday and IF we get the volunteers to come out on the next trail build day, we could get very far with these plans. Don't forget that Markham is YOUR park as well....
    First Sunday of each month is when we do most of the work,,,

    Yes, Sunday the 6th is TM day.

    We start at 8:30 AM. Just show up at the trail gate with work gloves, and old work clothes. I recommend a camelback or something like that for whatever you want to drink. Some snacks are a good thing too.
    Depending on how many people show up we may do anything from garbage pick up from the trails, I.E Gu packets, tubes, bike parts etc, to trimming vegetation in several trails that need it the most..
    Hope to see you there...

    How long do you normally work ?
    I have never ridden there, so might be a good way for me to check it out afterwards.

    That depends on how much we need to get done and how fast that happens but generally around 4 to 6 hours, although some of us stay until the job is done....
    Even if you put an hour or 2,3 in, that is fine too and much appreciated, as it isn't a chain-gang we're running here,,
    Although some days I wish....
