Default treehugger fix.

i posted on the old forum about trying to fix the bad spot on treehugger. i hit it with some sand bags and moved the wooden bridge thing over the second mud hole. i didn't ride so i can't say if it worked well or if it will hold up. let me know.

It wuz scary! My entire life flashed before me eyes as I watched my front tire go off the right side of the bridgey thingey. Only superb skill plus some small amount of luck enabled me to ride it on out.

I think it will work out fine once you've ridden it one time and know what to expect. Last night was a case of it being dark, expecting one thing and encountering something else.

Default Me too..

Pops, I almost bit it right there too the other day. "oh cool sandbags".....then off the right side of the the bridge with front tire almost endo'ing,...so I just hopped on the front wheel a couple of times (to get my balance), then swung the rear wheel over the bridge, hopped on rear wheel (to center up with trail) simultaneously doing a heel clicker (for style) and rode it out. Easy as pie.

Default La mud hole

Since I came from motorcycles, I still think in terms of "when it doubt gas it". Doesn't work with bikes. Or rather I don't have enough power to make any difference. lol

Pops and I fixed the problem with the land bridge. All it needed was to be moved over to the outside of the trail, and reposition a few sand bags.

did you leave enough room for the horses? they will yank it if it's in their way. i put it to the inside of the turn for that reason.

Are there a lot of horses on these trials and do the horses go on all the bike trails?

I guess what I am getting at is it not singletrack?

It is single track but we do have to share with the equestrian people. Not many of them anymore mind you but we still have to co-exist with them.

they're out there. they usually show up with trailers so if you see a trailer at the trail head, keep an eye out. especially this time of year when everyone want's to be outdoors. it boggles my mind that there are several equestrian centers and 250,000 acres of forest and they want to ride on the uwf trails.

It's not like you can even get a horse to go that fast either. You'd have to be poking along the entire time so what's the point? Plus not all of our trails are very tall so they'd have to dismount when going through.

Default makes you wonder

Here's a couple of interesting pics from their website. Recognize the bridge on the 1st pic?
