    As your signature says, but add a little twist..."trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean towards the LEFT...." cause the skinny will tilt ya towards the right...

    Once you do it you wonder why you didn't in the first place and Eujinc is right 90% mental...he didn't tell ya he went over to the right his first try, and "jump back on the horse" and did it again...when the videos are posted by Jason you'll see just how fast he cleared it the 2nd time....last year I wouldn't dare try it...last weekend did it so now it's getting easier...

    Ed

    Here I did it last week...picture same spot as Eujinc's.

    But don't lean too far left because going down to your left is going to hurt a lot more than falling to your right. I have first hand experience here (see imprint of body on side of hill) :

    I'm planning to hit Middle Run/White Clay either next Wed or Thursday morning. Have a 2:00 pm work start.

    Anyone interested for either of those two days?

    Has anyone seen the new tree crossing on the double horseshoe trail (I think) ??

    Apparently a huge tree or branch had fallen accross the trail last Thur of Fri...Instead of just cutting it up into pieces...somone had carved out the middle of it and built a ramp on each side...Kudos to whoever made it...I rode on this past Sun and saw it but didnt try becasue it was pretty wet back there...

    To get to it,I'm pretty sure you go over the long wooden bridge on the trail that leads accross Possum Hollow Trail rd and close to the bird sancturary...make a left at the end of the bridge and its about 1/4 mile dead ahead...I'll post some pics when I get some...

    we went over it on tuesday - so new it was covered in sawdust . it is on the double horseshoe trail. somebody did a very nice job, good approach and easy angles, easier if you are going counterclockwise on the trail.

    Based on the sequence of pictures taken, this bridge is midway between the tunnel and the entrance to the Skills trail.

    Video of the skinny crossing

    Here's NOT what to do (hesitate):




    Here's how you should do it (aim for the end of the skinny and keep pedaling):




    Remember folks, it's "90% mental"

    Is that the same bridge where if you guys had turned around and done it the other way it leads you to the junction where if you make a right it takes you to the guardrail crossing ?? If so, then I have ridden that bridge a bunch of times...It just looked real different in the picture...Getting up on the bridge is sometimes difficult if you are seated and tired...Its uphill and a little steep

    I'm average in riding, just rusty. Can run 12-15 miles also without any problems. I'll drop you a PM tomorrow or Monday.
