this tree ruins the approach to the log ride, which I prefer compared to a log hop and has been there since the beginning.. At least cut a section out to make the log ride accessible again.


Why not take the time to learn how to get over the log prior to the log ride?

The mentality of some WNY MTB riders is crazy! Might as well see if the county can pave the trails with the extra millings from the work they are doing on 240 right now :shock:


I like riding the log. I also can get over the down tree obstacle. But I can't get over the down tree fast enough to ride the log. The down tree is just to close and can't get up the speed (on my single speed) to do the log ride. it ruins the approach to the log ride.

I am all in favor of keeping down trees, logs, logs ride, rocks, and anything else to make it more challenge to ride the brook.

Can't we just get a musclebound guy with a blue mask just to pick up the tree and move it to a new location?

When I originally cleared the huge blowdown by the log ride this spring, I didn't really clearout the side facing away from the log ride much. I think if I clear that out now (still a lot of work), I can leave the log to ride over and still cut a path to the log ride. Best of both worlds :D

Looks like an ideal anti-horse obstacle! Maybe add a plastic snake on each side.

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.
