Definitely check the MORE Board, and especially the calendar. Now that the weather's gotten better, there are a lot of opportunities to get out and help whip the trails into shape. We really could use all the hands we can get!

Liked the new trail to ride, But......

The new trail at wakefield is great reminded me of Lodi, the only issue I see is this trail as a race course, there is no big climb up, a place to seperate the masses from the power boys. Last year at the Wednesday at wakefield races the two hill climbs in the woods enabled me to make up some ground.

Lake Accotink IS the more challenging course. Wakefield has always been less technical.

Accotink is certainly no freeride or downhill course. Fountainhead is far steeper than wiether of these two. Still, Accotink is fun, twisty, and has a steady diet of small elevation changes.

Accotink scores more fun points with me cause it sheds water very well. It goes up and down a lot more than Wakefield and has steeper climbs in general thatn Wakefield.

Wakefield is better since the redesign. It stays drier than before and seems to flow better.

Fountainhead is good because it goes and goes. It is a 7 mile or so loop and you hop it and and follow the trail. Wafefield and Accotink are more of a cobweb of intersecting trails which you just ride around at random. If you ride all of Wakefield, the bowl and Accotink then you can put in a good 13-14 miles of riding. Fountainhead takes two loops for 14 miles. I also like the challenge of bettering my own loop time there.
