    Bell Ringer is so nice to have open again, VOTLR rollover still needs dirt! Thanks for taking the initiative there whoever you are. Conditions in the west arm are sensational, getting a ride in before it rains later this week should be a priority!

    There will be more dirt added. I think the Gnomes figured it would get packed and more would be needed. Smart buggers….

    Shoot me a PM, I can find out who these gnomes are and put you in contact to help out.

    And yea, the ringer is awesome to have back. If you fellas know the amount of work that went in to it, then bring P a beer. haha.

    Wow, road the Flats underpass that has been reworked (bell ringer?)…that’s a crazy amount of dirt to move. I hope it holds out from the floods we occasionally get, because that is a ton of effort that went into it.

    Huge thanks, it’s GREAT to not have to cross the tracks anymore.

    Hey guys, New to the forum, just started riding the trails this past couple months.
    Today I went for a hike with the wife and raked the leaves and major debris off boomerang trail. Shes good to go!
    Thanks for all the work you guys do!

    Hey @bpett welcome to RFG! Lots of great people here in the community.

    I am sure the Don riders will appreciate your raking efforts.

    Beauty in there today! Lots of people in Crothers today walking their dogs without leashes so be careful on those speeds…opens up though once you get passed the lookout and into the backcountry where the chemical plants, a little trail work being done behind the quarry area…boo was great and fun as usual. Trails conditions are hard packed in most areas with exception of a few greasy spots and slick areas covered by leaves.

    Saw way too many newbies riding without the proper gear and no f’ing helmet…on my way back along boo saw cops on ATV’s flashing lights n all pulling an ambulance through. The Don can be a wicked place to ride! Put your dogs on leashes and wear a f’ing helmet.

    Cheers

    chicken run used to sort out the no helmet riders real fast….

    It’s really annoying to see as well, so I try to give people a hard time when I see them. Seen one partial scalp on the old chicken run, and a few concussions over the years in there.

    What are these new trails people are speaking of? Are we talking existing trail adjustments like the flats bridge underpass, or legit new trails? 5-play?

    Sorry, just curious, because I love new trail. 🙂

    Just a heads up, there was a creepy dude on the ridge last night, spinning a staff around. Stopped to change out a light battery, and he stopped about 20ft ahead of me, hiding in the dark, watching me spinning his staff around over his head. I quickly changed the battery, shined the light on him and said hello. He didn’t respond but moved behind a tree instead. I rolled up to confront him (as I needed to get by him) and he sidestepped away and ignored me. A few others said they saw him hiding along the trail, and on the way back he was going back into the trail from the gravel path. No idea what he was intending or doing, but it was creepy AF and threatening. Yay solo Don rides.

    Departing frost could make things greasy in the morning. It’s raining leaves today. Head’s up: massive tree down across the entrance to BOT. You’d be a hero to clear it, but a zero if you miss the next corner… Also some fresh work on PA and Roller Flowster.

    Things are awsome on there today. Tree down at the start of BOT. Work on roller flowster is pretty great and adds some nice flow. Get in if you can.
