Thanks to the money raised by Wade's Excellent Adventure, over 170 feet of rotted woodwork has been replaced on the Fromme classic, 7th Secret. Peter Morrin is also actively repairing eroded sections, improving the ride experience.

How old is Peter Morin? 200? 300 years old? He's probably been around longer than most of the trees on Fromme. The guy is the 8th Wonder of the World.

7th really needed the attention. Great work on the sections above the the woodwork too.

The slat/skinny/slat is a great way to keep the trail interesting while making it accessible to lower skill levels.

Amazing work. I will go and pay my respects tomorrow!

I rode UOC about a month ago [HTML_REMOVED] it looked like no one had been riding it. If that's true then that means 7th is getting ALL the traffic.

Nice work. All the decrepit old stuff is gone. New stuff looks great, rides well and is still sufficiently challenging. Awesome.

Great job! Thank you, builders! Challenge still there, flow is great.
I carried on to Crinkum, but did get the crap scared out of me upon discovering a
few potholes or missing slats. Any plans for a little work there?

That would be great, Ship-it.

Now that the shoulder height log has been trimmed back, the line for the tight right-hander has broadened out to riders left. This could use some armouring.

I'm gonna miss that log. Last time it was there I had to brake so hard to avoid it that I nose-wheelied down the pitch! :damn:

Totally agree that it needs some armouring… and luckily Peter has already done it ;)

I filled a couple of buckets of dirt for him on my way down today. I made my excuses and carried on, but in reality I was already getting tired :lol: Pretty damn humbling.
