    Demo Trail Conditions with photos of large downed trees

    Rode Demo today. Came in from Corralitos. Sweet riding, but lonely up there.

    Ridge is clear of dead fall, some small debris.

    Braile is clear until just above the bottom where many trees were knocked down. A few of them made noise when they landed on that kick A$$ trail and completely blocked it in three places, all close together. The trees are impassible without hiking and will need a crew with a chainsaw to be removed. See photos.

    Tractor is clear with lots of small debris but nothing to bother about.

    Saw pit is clear but for one tree that blocks it just above where Ridge turns into Saw Pit. It is right after that overhead tree that can be ridden under by ducking. A chainsaw will be needed to remove this tree too. See photos.

    I did not ride Corral or Sulphur Spring.

    Cheers to all.

    Demo Tree Fall Photos

    Photo one is the tree down at the top of Saw Pit

    The remaining photos are three different trees down near the Botoom of Braile

    All four trees completely block the trail and will need a chainsaw to be removed.

    The bike is on the trail, or above it at least, wherever its smiling mug can be seen in these photos

    dirt is good

    The trails are dry but for a very few soft spots and the usual puddles. Most of the muddy spots with deep tire tracks, from the handful of people who rode Demo this past week, I hopped of my bike and fixed so they are smooth too.

    Features

    Anyone wanting to turn those downed trees into features, Saturday is your chance. Trailworkers.com will be going in there and all volunteers who sign up at their website are welcome. There will be beer, or at least there was last time.

    Since I don't like writing, I don't have a blog to pimp. This space for rent.

    (Insert something witty about messin' with yeti/sasquatch here.)
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.
