8 May 2007 - 15:44Trails are OPEN
With the current stretch of fantastic weather stretching on and on, the ground has quickly become dry enough to ride bikes on. This is such great news. Most of the trail work we did last fall paid off, there is just a few fallen branches to clear up. Ponte, DA and Patrick Kell from VMBA have done a lion’s share of cleaning up the big stuff. There were a lot of fallen trees over knocked down over the winter, we’d had some serious wind storms. Their work with the chainsaw is most appreciated.
Not to be out done by DA, here I am rolling down he Wall on 6 Flags. The picture I took last year, found its way to all sorts of websites and articles, most recently the NEMBA Singletrack Magazine article on 29ers. Ironically, I took this picture of DA exactly 1 year ago yesterday.
The Perry Hill trail system now features 3 well marked loops, all of which are open. There is a trail day scheduled for this Sunday at 10am, so anyone local that would like to chip in some time, please show up at the parking lot by the tunnel. Bring work gloves, food and plenty of water.
