Totally. A revisit will tie in nicely with further attempts to master No Quarter.

Thanks for the reminder. I rode(walked) through that mess before Lee cleaned it up, didn't realize at the time it was vandalism until you posted it. I remember thinking that whomever fell the trees was lucky to get out of there alive. Not exactly a pro.

wait, those were LIVE trees that someone dropped?? Just to be a minor annoyance for a few days. If that's the case, what an incredibly massive douche move.

….if you're gonna take yer dog down Bobsled, make sure it can keep up with you [HTML_REMOVED] keep it out of the way of the drops.
I'm a dog person, so I would feel terribly guilty if I popped yer pooch.

PS maybe I was on Dogsled?

Have an issue with someone recently?

I always ride Fromme with my dogs, but they know what's going on and know to keep close.

Yep…twice this week (separate people). Bot on Bobsled. One of the dogs bee-lined onto the trail from the side….owner was nowhere in sight, so was not expecting anything. I locked the brakes [HTML_REMOVED] dang near smooshed the poor thing (I decided to stop and wait for a newby rider friend, so never did get to meet the owner).

Like I said…I'm a dog person as well…..I'll take mine on runs and some rides. Some friends do the same. Sometimes it's appropriate, sometimes she can be an obstacle. I make sure she is in front of me, or close behind. If I am stopped, then she is off the trail.
I don't need the guilt of my dog running into another rider, or vice versa….nor the potential vet bill or bike shop bill.

I don't have a problem with the dogs, it's the folks who don't respect their own pooch's safety or other people's rides. As long as the dog is predictable, and out of harm's way, it's all good.

No Quarter is not getting any easier!
The changes to Boundary are great. Damn it's been a long time since I rode that or Digger's.
Things are much better since the rains.

Normally I park at the tennis courts and use No Quarter to get me to the BP. Then I pedal across to the yellow gate and do my ride. From there it's great to end on Espresso/Pipeline/Ladies and continue all the way down through Pennzoil. I hate ending my ride with that traverse across the BP.

It will lead higher soon enough.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Patience grasshopper….its being roughed in! Rode it today again. I have spoken with a couple of guys that have made it up to executioner in one shot clean. Thats pretty impressive. There are a few tough bits on BP and DW on the way up.
