....I rode Red Valley yesterday for the first time in a long time and boy does it need some love!!! The lower sections by the Techo/Badger Pass intersection are pretty bad. Anyone else up for doing a little raking? Bueller....Bueller.......

Sample of what we did this morning......

Matt

Before, notice the off-shoots of tire tracks on the right and the wide trail on the left...

After, cleaned up the tire tracks on the right and narrowed the trail back to singletrack ...

I also noticed that people have been removing rocks from the trails to make it like a freeway,:mad:
That is insane I might start placing barricades for experts only.
If you want to ride a freeway go to the bike paths and leave the beginner/intermediate trails with a little bit of technicality.

I know that all of you here in the boards are not the ones doing it but it is unacceptable.:nono:

The next section to get some love will be the Little Red Valley area. That was a super fast, super fun section until the horses/burros walked on it after the rains...Does anyone wanna help out with this one?

Lil Red Valley???
I thought that was called Lil Daytona...
It's funny I was off the bike for a few years and lots of trails got new names...

Yeah, we need to get the names straight... or do we? If you asked 10 people the name of that section, you'd prolly get 8 different answers. It's all good :thumbsup:

Bumpidy-bump!

The Little Red Valley/Lil Daytona still needs some smoothing out. I'm planning on being out there Saturday (3-5-11) for some early morning riding and then some raking, anyone else?
