    And I'm not really taking a shot at you Epic/Eric, but we have had people blowing singletrack (rake & ride, not benched) wide enough for a Jeep. Our observation with this is people will ride all over that width and it can lead to braids where there doesn't need to be any. It is possible to blow the top off the mounds of leaves without cleaning down to bare ground - those magic wands are pretty amazing.

    One well-meaning lady blew a section through hemlocks and blew away all the compacted material around big roots. Now it is way more harsh and leads to wider trails as people try to avoid the more exposed roots.

    Sorry to be jacking this thread into a leaf blowing tutorial - not meant to do that. I just hate seeing tight singletrack being transformed into elephant paths - again, not referring to Epic's work!

    From my little mini road trip up into VT/NH/ME a couple weeks ago.

    Drove up for a day to check out STAB.










    Camped. Drank. Ate. Headed over

    to Millstone the next morning, ended up riding with some guys from RI.








    Then over to North Conway, where Radair very graciously gave me a tour of some local stuff that was most excellent. Sweet riding, great views, a very fun descent, (and way longer than most that I have around me) and not a single picture taken.

    Touron peeper pics.




    Next to Sunday River. I owe a huge thanks to the Slaphead Mofo crew for shwoing me around the place and sharing beer. SR = me likey. Not many pics - too busy riding.





    The tower run was indeed the icing on the cake, the cherry on the top, etc.


    Plans altered a bit - the forecast was really not as cooperative as I'd hoped, and holiday weekend traffic sucked balls big time. Headed over to check out FOMBA.
    I think this was the most technical thing I found...

    Nice vid! Smooth riding.
    Get out and ride even when you don't want to because ten minutes into the ride you'll be glad you did.

    i ride like that in my dreams. those ones that go on forever where things all flow and you can jump and fly and whatever forever.

    not my thing, (maybe it should be, looks damned fun!)

    that makes me want a full squishy bike, or all mountain, or whatever you kids call them these days.

    me and my fargo and all my camping gear and crap will be over here, off to the side, out of your way.

    nice.

    strava this!

    I'm on a ten year old steel one speed hard tail. Dirt jumps and pump tracks...spend a season there....it changes everything.

    hmmm.
    thanks for the tip.

    gave up my singlespeed rigid to fund the adventure bike.
    might have to pick up a beater / basher so i can injure myself some more...

    nice vid, well done.

    Not nearly as impressive as the video above, but I spent about 45 minutes the other day recording some low-key XC riding with my phone. In my head I was riding much quicker.

    It's not, just curious. Looks like nice buff singletrack.

    Yeah its pretty buff. Rooty in some places and a few technical rock gardens, but some good flow if you keep pedaling. About 10 miles of single track riding. It's close, so I ride there often.

    Nice fat 4 hour loop in Stowe today. West Branch Circumnavigation. Snowed all day over 2000 ft. We topped out at about 2100 were we had to push the last few steeps, and kept it real light on the brakes for the first few hundred vert on the way down. Fun stuff!
