Yeah, anne-marie: don't think lack of responses earlier last month meant we didn't want to get back to you. April can be completely unpredicatable. Great riding last weekend, and now snow this coming weekend. Typical April.

Bill would know best, but it is prob too early for a ride still.

As it is, the trail work day on Saturday will be an adventurous one. The weather forecast is calling for a VERY late winter snow storm Easter weekend. With cool temps.


And Caiman, you don't really need to bring anything. Post work lunch and all tools are provided. If you have a fav tool (or fav beers), bring them by all means.

Should tell you no. Plan on doing lots of riding and less trail work. We won't be campaining Deacon for any more retiever titles, we were training him daily and spending 8 or 9 hours a week driving to places and groups to train with. He's too big to stud anyhow.
Just got my bike back from Pete, did a 1 hr road ride Weds, sweet. That's how it use to act. Dropped 28 lbs since Christmas, half an hour a night on the trainer, diet and 30 minutes on the trainer for every beer.
Maybe I won't break the rear triangle.
Looking forward to seeing the trail work schedule, will make a few of them and do some work on Golden Hill too.
Bert

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
