    They are making some pretty cool looking improvements to their base facilities. Things
    are going to look a little bit different there when the season starts next month.

      I just got back from a week in Boston for work and it's nice to be back in the high country.
      We took a nice family ride on the local dirt before the rain yesterday. Trails are either in great shape or washed out.

              So this is were you tele guys are hanging out :-)

              Nice ride B! maybe roll up the pavement for a cables creek loop to extend it out a bit might be a cool option.

              Bet you were happy to see the trail in your Sierra loop has finally been logged out, yea!

              I'll throw in a few pics from my coastal area ride this weekend

                That's pretty awesome that they cleared the waterfall. I'm 1/2 on it.

                      Thanks WH and others for the pics. It takes a lot of effort to put together a piced TR. WH, you are setting a pretty high bar for TR's, much appreciated.

                      edit to add: of course B too...

                        You did well out this way. Hit me up if you want to see a few more areas next time around. I know of a few that definitely don't have that tourist feel.

                            This thread is bringing it!

                            I seem to keep washing out when leaning over around turns/berms/etc. What's the trick to not crashing? My elbow and flank are way too sore.
