  1. It's on the previous page or two.
  2. Hmm, I'll need to look at that next time I'm out there. I've been going to the right on the way up (through the cheater line), but that video makes it look pretty easy. That doesn't mean it's easy, of course, and when I get back out there I'll probably be like, "Screw that!" That's the only feature on 1/4 Notch that gives me any pause. ..Al
  3. I'd be amazed if it's rideable. We got over 2" of rain here, and I'm not that far from Walnut Creek.. There's no way it was rideable yesterday.
  4. Hmmm, I think I may have committed monies as well, I completely forgot about that. And I couldn't even get out to Brushy yesterday to watch, as I had some emergency computer crap to do (thank you critical Exim vulnerability with exploits already in the wild!) Only got about 2.5 hours of sleep last night, so I will be a zombie later. ..Al
  5. Was given this report by someone who just ran the trails: "The trail is damp but fine. Small isolated puddles will probably be gone by this evening. Markโ€™s Art crossings are still messy. The seep at the start of Windy Loop is still seeping. Best to use the route-around to minimize erosion there."
  6. I'd really like to use it on Suburban Ninja. When I rode it a week ago only two-thirds of the southern section (leading to the trees) was cut, and it also needs to be trimmed beyond that under the tree cover for a ways.. The hog would make quick work of that. Would need to touch base with whoever is maintaining the trail to make sure they are okay with doing that.
  7. @GreenMTBrider and I spent several hours this morning at Brushy with the Brush Hog cutting away the tall grass along the entire length of Picnic, the beginning of 1/4 Notch, and whatever that trail is called that intersects with the 1/4 Notch entrance and runs along a field for some distance (I'd never been on it before, but walked its length twice today!!) Saw lots of people riding the trails while it was relatively cooler (that is, instead of hot as hell, it was just hot). A few photos: Some before shots of Picnic: Picnic during and after mowing: That other trail whose name I do not know: I look forward to riding Picnic again and being able to actually see oncoming riders and not having dirty nature rubbing constantly on my legs! ..Al
  8. Wow, that's damn cool, thanks for sharing progress and photos of this new trail!
  9. Thanks for all the reports, may need to go out early tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚ ..Al
  10. I still don't like them. The only dropped-bar bike I have is a Specialized Crux cross bike and that is hooked up to my stationary trainer. I generally use my Crosstrail hybrid when I want to ride roads and crushed granite trails, as that has a flat bar. It is certainly heavier than the Crux, though! ๐Ÿ˜„
  11. I agree, I tend to do rather long road/gravel rides when the trails are too wet.
