Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

I'm well aware of all the trails and what they offer. Personally I like the obstacle course nature of Area 51 too. However the reality is that clearly a lot of people are having issues with that section because it is becoming braided as people try to avoid the slippery, muddy log matrix, which in t...

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

We rode Area 51 yesterday and really didn't notice any missing logs. However there are a few creating a mess in the section south of the big hill. Logs plus mud equals fru fru riding conditions and trail damage.

Re: Best Race Ever??? (Erzberg 2015)

Redbull TV seems to have lost interest in Hard Enduro the last year or so. They used to do a full hour show on every event and now its hard to find more than 5 minutes on an event.

As much as I'd like to watch Erzberg, aint staying up to 3 am to do it.

I have an auto clutch so I can go over logs. It is more likely someone with a conventional clutch having troubles w log crossings but way too fragile to admit their inabilities. :O

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

I also agree. I think the stallions ones were done by quadders. I have not made it to 51 this year but definately whoever is doing their own selective logging knock it off leave challenging trails challenging. We rode Area 51 couple of weeks ago and I didn't notice any obvious freshly cut logs. Tha...

Re: An Observation...Maclean Creek.

rant on...i notice that a lot of trees on the ground that have been there forever are slowly being chainsawed away. Really changes so many of the trails out there to much easier. i wish whoever is responsible would stop and just become a better rider. i noticed last season and now this season even ...

Yes, stinky, oily 2-strokes can't seem to make it through a ride without puking up a plug. :lol:

Re: Safe, Secure on Trail, in Camp

With respect to navigation: The club map is extremely helpful but it does have a number of errors/omissions that can be confusing to someone new to the terrain. IMO a satellite system is overkill unless you are exploring unmapped areas/trails and will be going a long way off the beaten path. I run a...

Re: Safe, Secure on Trail, in Camp

Nobody should be out riding without a camelbak. Food, you will have to experiment with to see what works for you. Personally I find that protein doesn't help me out on the trail. I require carbs, so a Mars bar or a granola bar works better. Tools: Take only the common wrench sizes for your bike (typ...

7 kms total to the quad trail. 7.1 kms if you include the old section with the nasty hill.

Re: Easy Beginner Ride?

Drive up Hwy 40 (red) till the pavement ends. Go another roughly 10 kms, just past the campground on the right side. You will pass over a concrete bridge and then on the right side see a sign for the Whispering Pines Bible Camp. The big blue sign also denotes a staging area. Take the small dirt road...
