I have been receiving quite a number of questions pertaining to the posts about the Raystown Trails. Rich Edwards of IMBA Trail Solutions will be glad to answer any of your questions just send him a shout at Rich at IMBA dot com.
On to today. It was a little on the dusty side today, Steven keeps saying he is waiting for it to dry up a little, but I think it is just the dust getting to his head. Can you even see his head in this photo?
But, on a more interesting and "cooler" side, I have been talking about using motos to "burn in lines" on large trail system builds like this to check macro flow and also to create a visible line that allows users to quickly enjoy their experience rather than feeling like they are still in a construction zone. A crew of three out of Harrisonburg have been in town for two weeks doing just that and lopping roots and clearing out limbs along the way. They are currently working on a trail called Ray's Revenge which is the heart breaker of the system. It is always great when you can have that one trail that just beats you to a bloody egoless pulp. It will take them two days to clear it, then I am going back to ride it. I can't wait to get photos that capture how torturous this trail really is.
Finally, I spent a little time in my art mind enjoy.
