    It's pretty steep in a few areas. Not to say there is no xc riding on the mountain, but it's mostly 29ers due to the amount of rocks

    29ers?

    for DH or XC I do DH and AM up there and I dont have a 29er I do own both DH and AM bikes that can handle the terrain. There is miles of AM riding to be had also. The DH runs are mostly rocky though, just a few "smooth" areas. If you are used to smooth XC then no but if you are used to riding rocky AM terrain this is for u!

    This is gonna be a fun day. Quick question, does anyone know how the shuttling will work. All riders doing the same run could cause some stacking on the trails. More than one shuttle would be ideal but I'm sure no matter what this will be a good day!

    I'd be into shuttling a weeknight, I have a pickup and could be at the tower by 4:45-5:00. It would be fun to do a weekly thing like last year.

    I often ride there on weeknights. I work in town so I can be there by 5:00 usually. Today looks like a no-go, but we'll have to get something going again.

    We'll probably do another official shuttle day in October (not sure on the date yet though).

    I'll check with my team and see if anyone can make it. My DH bike is broken again so I'll be on a raw/green bottlerocket if I come.

    I won't be able to make it out tommorrow. Flat problems with my bottlerocket, and a broken dh bike. Looks like I'll be dirt jumping Instead. I'll try to make it next week. If you decide to go, start at the firetower and head into the woods in the direction of the pagoda. Most of the trails start there.

    Watch out for people doing trail maintenance this Saturday, try not to run anyone over... They will be prepping the trails for another shuttle day. We don't have a concrete date yet, but it will be soon.

    keep me in the loop for sure, my weekends are kinda hit or miss with work but if I can get away for an afternoon I'm down to ride, dig, or do trail work.
