Huge weekend.. Go ride. We’re dying for feedback. ūüėČ
The low down: Moisture content was perfect for shaping and we made good use of it.

Saturday

Scott had 5 volunteers show up at the start and we were joined by another passerby or two during the build.
We took on about 350-400ft of trail, starting at flag 16 and working our way north. We focused on establishing proper tread width, tread slope, smoothness, and rideability. In the process we enhanced/established some grade reversals for better drainage, and to add interest and fun to the lines.
Most folks stayed for about 3 hours.

Sunday

imageRobbie and Scott we were the only ones to brave the morning chill. Lacking a proper donut shop in Erie, they settled on a bag of Little Debbie frosted donuts to fuel the day.
We picked up were the Saturdays crew left off.¬†Focus for the two of us was to address the run up and exit from the little “step-up” Scott roughed in weeks ago.¬†Done. With style. ūüėȬ†We dialed tread slope, width, and rideablity for another 75/100ft north of where Saturdays crew left off.¬†Total time for¬†Sunday¬†was about 5.5 hours.¬†The back slope for the entire work area needs some clean up. I was too spent to give it much love.

Several people first timers came by each day. I got the most stoke from a pair of 7-8 years olds who came by late Saturday. As they rolled the grade reversals they would squeal like the pig from the Geico commercials, weeeeeeeeeeeeee! So rad.
