On-Going Maintenance...

Well guys - with the monsoon season upon us, we all need to be a little vigilant while out riding. Everyone should have a folding hand saw on them during a ride. Also, if everyone kicks a few branches off the trail everytime they ride, no one has to spend their entire ride time cleaning up the trails.


By the end of the night on Tuesday, the Corbies were in good shape. I'm sure with the storms last night things are a mess again. No one needs to be a super hero, everyone just needs to stop and do a little on each ride.




This is the folding Corona Hand Saw. $20 at Lowes. It is the fastest cutting, lightest, best saw I have found. The blades do break sometimes though.

I usually carry a similar saw, use it sometimes too! I rode Wed. evening and there is one big tree down on GSC in the middle. You can get around it but not on the bike. That is a chain saw job. I know when you are feelig good it it hard to stop and throw limbs off the trail but if every one just does a few it will help us all! Might save your derailuer.

Jason has had HOW LONG off now, and the trails STILL need some work? I gotta call bullshit on that one. 1 anonymous surfer

I'm amused how most of these post start off all about trailwork and within a couple of post turn into a group ride discussion!
