Life is Sweet!

Someone sent me a nice poem and gift of dinner for two at the Mac House. Whoever it was has been enjoying new trails and wanted to thank me. Well it is a pleasure to be playing a part in creating and caring for trails that are well liked! I am a small part of all the folks that promote build and maintain bike trails in our area. Every time I have asked for help many have come willing to do the hard work needed. Great new trails have been built with little or no help from me. I would love to take you all out to dinner but think I'll just take my wife this time. It feels very good to be appreciated. Thank you!

JDSF Cleared Manley Gulch Slide

A few weeks after I asked if JDSF could have a crew clear the slide on the Manley Gulch Trail and was told "probably not" they got it cleared! I was not looking forward to cutting all the downed trees and digging the slide off of the trail although I was sure to have lots of help from other MCC members.
Hope we don't have any more major trail problems!

Ready for the Tour of Unknown?

I hope to be able to sit on the bike for 8 hrs and get up all the climbs this year. The road should be really rough after all the rain. I will again be on my moutain bike hybrid. The triple chain rings and front suspention work well for me on this ride. Some of the local riders hate to be behinde a MTB and skip the lunch break to stay in front. It is a pleasure to pass a few of them on the Endless Hills at the end of the ride. I am looking forward to my complementary massage at lunch and after the ride befor the included dinner. Yes this ride is well supported!
