    T100 (Mine Trail) Sanitation?

    Took the climb up the Mine Trail (1A?) to the very extreme top yesterday, and noticed the small rock cropping in the middle of the trail about 100 yards from the top was gone, making the entire climb doable. Anybody have any beta?

    I see you've been riding your bike a lot.

    Thx...Doug

    Um, I tore my achilles in Nov. and just getting back on the bike.

    And it was there last time I rode it, which was less than 9 months ago.

    I have taken it upon myself to make things easy for everyone out there. It is what I do best: ease the pain for the masses.
    you will thank me later!

    A torn achilles is keeping you off the bike? You gotta man up. When I tore mine, I was riding in a matter of weeks. Ya...it was probably a dumb thing to do but I just couldn't stand it any longer.

    When is the last time you're certain you rode the mine trail? It's been sanitized at least since last Fall (when I got my Rita)...possibly longer.

    Thx...Doug

    Thank you. FYI, I had to walk it anyway, so you did a terrible job!

    there is no accounting for rider ability. You require a skills park!

    Weeks? I was in a cast or walking book for two months. I was only given the okay to actually start riding about a month ago. I've been on my mt bike three times since then.

    Honestly, I don't remember. It was part of my regular route, and was trying to ride pretty regularly prior to the injury. I was pretty damn surprised to see it gone, as they had to take some doing to actually dig that mother out.

    Thought you had no problem with banning things that have motors from state land trust. .
