Re: Emma Long ride....

FYI:

There's an upcoming TRIALS COMPETITION in FEB at CITY PARK.

In preparation for this big competition, AUSTIN TRIALS CLUB started putting up ribbons this weekend around some key sections off to the side of the Main loop. This work will be in progress all the way up to the competition weekend.

Like in the past, these ribboned off sections do NOT obstruct, nor interfere, nor close off the main loop, so everyone can still ride out there like before.

Re: Emma Long ride....

You guys enjoying these record breaking 85 deg F sunny days in early Feb??

I rode out there yesterday and ... SHAZAM!.....look at this new
rock garden that's now laid down near the end of the main loop.


I don't know about you....but this looks like a killer spot to dial in your suspension for riding rocks.

I'll be out there around noon..riding my funny lookin' bike..

Re: Emma Long ride....

I was out there the day they did that work. That's a whole lot of rocks to lay. I'm not sure if that was done to prevent erosion in one of the few spots with soil or what the deal was.

If you want to be shaken not stirred I guess it might be fun to ride on.

Re: Emma Long ride....

A few of us helped put that down last weekend. Weather was great and it was done fairly fast (3-4 hrs) Around 15 guys helped; Kevin Schwantz was one of them.

Its rough to ride over for sure.

I'm going to try to ride there Thu. Mind hit it on Saturday.

Re: Emma Long ride....

Hey Vinny, et al...
thanks a bunch for putting down the sweat and volunteer work to do this.
It looks amazing, pro-level quality. Pojects like this is going to keep the trail accessible for everyone to enjoy.
Such a treasure to have this riding place right in the city.

Re: Emma Long ride....

Planning on riding Saturday morning. Probably starting between 7:00 and 7:30 am so I can head out by 10:00 if there are any early birds who want to join me.

You should still go and watch . Would that be able to ride though . Expect lots of cars and limited parking .

First opportunity to ride since my wife's surgery...

Guess I'll be staying home. Thanks for the heads up. I would have been really bummed if I got up early only to ride over there and get denied!!

Re: Emma Long ride....

Working on a kitchen pass but currently planning on riding Saturday morning. Probably starting between 7:00 and 7:30 am so I can head out by 10:00 if there are any early birds who want to join me.

Will confirm later tonight if I can go.
