here are a few pics from my ride sunday at the local trails 5 min from my house. nothing too skilled, but great place to start out, and beautiful woods.
Have yet to meet another rider on the trails... guess that is a good thing and a bad thing. i would love to know how i am doing compared to others, but have a blast anyway! i am absolutely loving this sport, is way more fun than i had imagined!


well here are just a few pics off my cell camera, in between the huffing and puffing of bein out of breath.

I am assuming that you are coordinating with the people who are responsible for the design and maintenance of the trail?

And what is the point of removing it if it can be a new challenge?

i ride mainly on abandoned trails within a state park that has no budget to maintain them.
i have talked to park rangers,and they said as long as i don't use chainsaws etc (any power tools) we can do with it what we want.what i remove is small limbs,debris,trash.

the six months i've rode these trails ive met one other mtb'er and he rides on the other side of the paved course than me,so while the trail is overgrown a bit.it's kinda my job to clear it up.

You should consider helping out with the maintenance of your trail system, that's really important to the sport and gives you a great feeling of accomplishment.
