    I'm not defending the idiots that rode and walked on the concrete, but I'm really surprised they didn't at least put some barrier up. I wonder if they will fix it or leave it as a monument to stupidity set it stone.

    Trails were in awesome condition the past three days, and it was a blast to ride all of them again. Thank you to the person that spent time working on 1/4 notch and the problem areas, it was a pleasant surprise to not have to hike a bike through those sections that had been abused. Thank you specifically to @Cafeend since I came across him at the end of his endeavor to repair sections on picnic and picnic x. Sadly I caught him at the end of his 4 hour endeavor and only helped with the last section that needed to be repaired.....he did some great work to many sections by himself. I’m so greatful to have this community of riders and builders that have created and maintained such a wonderful trail system. I hope the upcoming rain keeps people off the trails, and the repaired sections, to show appreciation of the hard work. - Scott
  4. I saw that quote as well and if the CoA did mandate the trail be built as part of development I doubt they would be happy about the new fee. However, since there wasn’t any article or proof cited I would bet the CoA may not have the original agreement or a way to enforce it. After all, the trail was built, but I’m sure nothing stated it couldn’t have a fee. 🙄
  5. I saw the reddit post earlier this morning and after reading those comments and the ones here I can see arguments for both sides. On one side, you have a trail that people like to use and now they can't (or have to pay a fee) which of course makes people mad. On the other hand, I can't say I would be super happy to keep paying to clean a trail because the users were littering. I would think the homeowners just got tired of it and this was the quickest solution. To relate it to our world of mountain biking, I can tell from the posts over the last 6 months how the people that are the most dedicated to trail building or trail maintenance are getting tired of fixing ruts when trails are ridden wet. I can't say that I blame them, but they are extremely dedicated folks that have a passion about trail building and will continue to march on (with the community's help), but those ordinary folks that just see $$ getting wasted are unlikely to be so forgiving. If it truly is private property (this was debated in that reddit post) then I would think it's their prerogative to do what they please with it. If one day the land owner of Cat Mountain decided to close it off I would be unhappy, but understand that isn't my property and I was simply a guest there. I sure wouldn't want to be the board of the community that decided to enact the fee once a local news station picks up the story. - Scott

    Someone tell Seattle we don’t like their rain totals and we don’t have the soil for it. On a serious note, all the rollers/berms looked decent other than those last two. I also wasn’t sure the best place to throw the water since there was trail down hill, but throwing it slightly uphill seemed redundant.

    What time were you out adjusting? I bailed the second set on the east side around 1:45. No other berms or rollers were holding water, but the trail was super wet and had some ruts. 😟

    This is a wonderful idea. If anyone helps out, try and put the bucket back in the same place you found it so Ronan or others can find it next time. As a bonus for anyone that bails rollers, you also get to educate others about not riding wet trails. I've been on the west side bailing the rollers or berms and I was able to educate people on how the trail was to wet to ride.

    Fanny packs

    I bought the camelbak lr4 and I’ve only used it once so far due to one design issue I haven’t found a solution to. (I also haven’t searched the web just yet so there could be a viable one). The specs say it fits up to a 40 inch waist, and while I’m not that out of shape, I’m probably closer to 36/37. The belt fits just fine, but the stock mouth piece holder is on one side of the pack from where the bladder straw comes out. I’m not even sure a 20 inch waist would be able to hook it into the holder since the bladder straw is pretty short. I’d be willing to bet there’s some sort of work around, but it seems pretty silly they would make the belt go to larger widths and not think about the placement of that straw holder. I do hope I can find a solution as I did like having the weight of my water lower which seemed to help with stability when riding.

    Oh wow, that sounds like a bad crash. I hope the surgery goes well and his rehab gets him back riding soon.

    Are you kidding me?

    I can’t believe it rained last night. Had a ride with a friend planned for rhr ranch Saturday but we changed it to Sunday based on the forecast. I did all my errands and crap Saturday and didn’t ride (he’s a stronger rider and I needed fresh legs) and now looks like I passed up a great day for a no ride day.

    Final said it was an adult male in his 50’s, serious but not life threatening injuries. Sound anything like the people you saw?

    According to twitter for ATCEMS they are extracting an injured person from around rim loop. It didn’t specifically say a bike rider, just an injured male on the bike trail. Hope it will be minor injuries after they get him out.

    As long as it doesn't look crappy, could we put that "how ruts are created" diagram in the kiosks? I can't remember who posted it on here or what page it's on, but David has it on the twitter feed in past photos. I would think that pictures might get more views than words in those kiosks.

    I was wondering if that was the issue. I’ll give that a try. Thank you!
