But we will have a ride or two by appointment before then. This Sunday, Nov 22, is one such appointment. This also happens to be coupled with trailwork. Bring your McLeod or we'll have one for you to use. Ride after we work.
Seems most (99.5% according to IMBA) prefer to ride on these beautiful Fall days rather than do trailwork. I would rather just ride too, but then there would be less trail coming online. We can only ride when the ground is frozen. Let's do trailwork in these cooler temps AND ride.
We start work at noon and ride after that.
Questions? ask here or send me an email: tpmbt at cox dot net.
Will have a carpool leaving Bike Masters at 11.
To wet your appetite, I took some pics while touching up a couple spots last Sunday. This sequence is of the Tower Bluff descent we built a couple weeks ago. About 70' of drop with 5 switchbacks. Very fortunate to find these plateaus because much of the bluff is 35%+ grade straight down to the river bottom.
This is at the edge of the bluff. Need some benching but it is rideable. Maybe lack of benching is a ttf? 8-)
Benched a deer trail to drop down on a plateau. A boy scout fall line trail is to the right of the orange coffee can bottom.
First switchback. Able to incorporate natural grade for a wall ride. Chris saw this line.
Skipped to third switchback. After first ride, reworked to direct riders wide left to more easily make the sharp descending right turn.
Fourth switchback is a nice lefthand sweeper.
Here is another view of the fourth and fifth switchbacks from up the hill.
Same view from still higher up the hill.
Fifth switchback. Built in stall before right turn for grade reversal to shed water off the trail.
