    Great Pictures

    A couple of really nice shots of Johnson's Bridge and of Blood Rock. It really is a great place to spend the weekend.

    Looks like one of the boys got into the poison ivy? Maybe it isn't a bad case.......

    Glad you enjoyed the weekend...come back soon.

    Cool pictures. I was up there this weekend. Fat guy on an IndyFab 29er SS. I think I saw ya'll on the run in to Blood Rock. You were ahead of me but I think I recognize the Bianchi. Don't see many at OM. Anyway, outstanding pictures.

    Great Trip indeedy!

    Had a great time riding with the fellers and made a new friend in the process.

    Trail is really showing signs of heavy travel but holding up nicely.

    I used to favor CCW direction but after this weekend I like CW as it's seems to flow better!


    In two weeks me and the Bianchipoot are headed to DuPont for his first time.

    I have ridden both directions, but CW direction does flow better for the singletrack sections along the base of Oak Mountain. By going CCW coming down the red trail hill with the waterbars is fun, but overall CW direction is better.......... Johnsons Mountain is good regardless of direction, if CW it is more technical down hill, of CCW then you get a fast downhill after the climb to the top.............
