Loop – 45 miles ( 12-15 miles of trail )
Trail Boss – Off Road Rider & Jerry
Riders – The Crew
I was able to join Dave and Jerry to finish some trail projects between
Landmark and Yellow Pine.
I got up at 4:30 AM and made it back home after midnight .
Jerry is an animal, he rode without gloves most the day.
The only times I saw him stop moving was when he had to sharpen his saw !

the bikes just north of Landmark ~ 10:15AM.
Dave’s highlights of the ride.
Just a couple of filters on the trail .
I picked the wrong line and was trying to thread between a rut and tree.
Small creek crossing
Top of the sidehill
It was steep , loose and off camber .
3 out of the 6 bikes slid off , including myself. My rear wheel went off
but I was able to walk the bike back on the trail.
Dropping down into the bottom thicket.
I don’t think it had been cut since the fire back in ~ 2008.
I was tasked with walking the ”trail” and marking the old cuts with ribbon.
It took hours of cutting with two saws to go a couple of miles .
Jerry never stops !
Dropping into the creek was easy but a technical , slick climb out.
