    Want to build?

    Have you ever wanted to have a hill side to do with what you want? Build a trail there, or put in a jump here, and the governing association be on board with it? I just got word that Merced Irrigation District has allotted an area at Lake McClure just for that. They are opening an area with the notion that it is yours to build, do you want to build BC style ladders and huge drops, bring a shovel and they are ok with it. They are having an Grand Opening thing on May 3rd to try and kick it off. There are a few trails started, but the whole thing has a lot of potential. Hit me up if you have any questions

    Do you think there's a way to shuttle some of this?

    Not really, it is all within the confines of fenced in area. Really though it is only 1.5 miles and 7-800 feet of elevation from bottom to top, and the whole climb can be had on fire road. So if you are really that worried, you could push your sled up it if it is too hard to pedal. Now if down the road it was set up for a race course then using the fire road to shuttle riders up I could see something like that, but everyday trucks getting into the area nope.

    That is a little ways away. We are in planning stages of a cross country route that we will need some hands on this winter some time. I could probably get discounted camping rates for volunteers during that weekend, I will post up here when that happens. On a side note send me a private message about this bulldozer and backhoe you speak of.

    No biggie, we are in search of mini skid steer or excavators so I got a little excited, but will still keep posted about the build weekend.

    They tend to concentrate at flow, beginner type trails, over sanitized, no gnar, lame jumps...OK if you like oversized pump tracks, but pretty borish on a big bike.

    come on out next weekend and join us. A lot of the areas set for jumps have not been built up yet. There is still cattle on part of the property, but the cattle will be gone in april. Right now we are really concentrating on the trail itself right now.
