    Yeah, I dropped the ball on that one - or more accurately put the ball down. After many years of maintaining (and building...shhhh) with PLENTY of help (from people who know who they are - not sure if they want their names mentioned) I finally had enough of the rocks and just need to get away from there for awhile.

    The Tubs is supposed to be difficult. One of my peeves was seeing "go-arounds" gradually popping up at the difficult sections. When I first started riding there in the early 90's, if there was a section I couldn't ride, I'd walk it until I could - it never even crossed my mind to create an easy way around it. Anyway, I hope at the workday, the original intended routes are maintained, and not the go-arounds.

    Thanks for stepping in an picking up the slack!! I'll try my best to be there for the workday.

    Does this mean swimming will be allowed in the tubs again?

    Amy and I rode there a couple weeks ago. It's in great shape. Like Mike said, there are some "go arounds" that should be shut down. Does any one gave any picker bushes? Lol...
    ahh...the sound of my hub when I coast.

    Watch out for the naked guys making out behind the boulders on the first section of trail. Saw that last time I was there. Unfortunately I can't unsee it.

    Good job!

    I have maintained it all along...

    ...riding there is super fun, and at the meeting I was asked how the trails at the 7 Tubs are doing and if there was still interest in this place, so I posted a workday in response.

    Someone remind me to bring my short steel pry bar...

    ...will come in handy to shift a few rocks!

    I cut the tree out on the dirt mound a while back and have done basic maintenance regularly. I ride up there @ 2X per week. I think it is the most difficult in the area. There are just so many tough entries. I even ride across Giants Despair now and again to get there. Some fun down hills and a
    lot of infrastructure that most do not know about.
