Weather turned out pretty good! Rained during the night so a few spots were slick, but still a good day riding on the trails.

Thanks for coming out and helping me run things in guys!

Thanks for having us out today Bucho. This place is a gem for sure. Here are some photos taken from the day. ImageImageImageImage
There is no shortage of log hopping and switchbacks with off camber roots. I managed to look good for the camera most of the day until I got to the telephone pole bridge and promptly threw myself and my bike into the thorny bushes. That was less than enjoyable.

The bridge is tricky. Today was a little worse with the overnight rains, pretty slick.
