There was a comment a couple days ago about a trail that ends at the Severed Dick - Baden Powell junction. That's not the reroute you're talking about, is it? Does that come from Dale's? Thx

i rode severed for the first time in a while yesterday - its running great! the quagmire at the top is almost a pumptrack - and the clapped out sections below have been upgraded too, while the moves and tech stuff remain. brilliant work

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. We've only really worked down the the Schorn connector to date but the trail has been adopted by Different Bikes/NSride this year so expect to see lots more improvements by year end.

Sustainable will be around forever.

Although I don't frequent the shore that much anymore. I had the pleasure over the weekend to participate in the TAP trail work day on Dale's. Thanks to NSMB, TAP, Ryders and Muddhonnies - you have a great thing going keep it up.

My 2 cents on the previous discussion:

I thoroughly enjoyed riding Dale's and Forever After. I thought the bypass has merit and certainly increased the flow. In my case, the route is all ridable with the exception of the "Rock Face" and i think it is safer to ride the bypass than walk down the face. I am sensitive to retaining the character of older trails, but lets face it all trails are in a constant state of change - I like the option of having the bypass available. I don't think it is necessary to dumb down all of Dale's significantly, just because an easier trail has been built below it. Personally, I enjoyed the change of pace during a ride - but since i don't shuttle up - the whole ride is a change of pace.

Get involved- Get dirty.

I enjoy riding Dales and Forever-After but have never ridden the big rock face successfully. I appreciate having the ride-around as an option. I agree that it is a safer (and more fun) alternative to walking the rock face. Thanks very much to whoever put in the effort to create this line.

Good you liked it. Too bad the NSMBA doesn't care about the opinions of earlier builders as your thoughts are worthwhile.

Has anyone even met this 'NSMBA'? I hear they only meet in private, and are only out to serve themselves.

I mean really, when the majority of my longstanding NShore riding network frequently talk about how great the past few years have been for the trails, I'm pretty sure those NSMBA-Holes with their cushy, high paying positions, and their well funded, huge army of trail building cronies are to blame.

Damn them for being so selfish and exclusionary.

Filled in some more mudholes on C-buster

I think the reroute around the rock face is a great idea and its character fits well with the difficult nature of Dales. For those who have dialed in the rock face, it isn't much more difficult, just higher consequences.

The code has been cracked, title fixed.

Also another secret event on May 13th, called a Town Hall meeting where Wernie can come out and listen to an update and ask questions.

Wernie will we see you there?

while i haven't seen the work myself i trust your opinion so i shall take it in good faith that it works with the trail. my concern stems from sending a lot of newer riders down an advanced trail and the resultant damage that can occur. i recognize that some might see that at elitist, but it isn't as for reasons stated previously.

We don't know what our limits are, so to start something with the idea of being limited actually ends up limiting us.
