Keeping it real with
“Old Fashion Mtb
Thanks to the crew of about 10 that came out today so that we could finish the re-route around the tornado damage. This new trail will allow us to ride killer singletrack on the way back from Little Rock City.
A couple of us are going to ride the long course tomorrow, Tuesday at about 9. Come and join us if you would like. We should have exact mileage of the long course tomorrow afternoon.
The long course turns out to be 23.5 tough miles with 2500 feet of climbing. There is about 1.5 miles of climbing on doubletrack and maybe a mile on dirt roads in the current course layout, therefore the majority of the race is on sweet singletrack
We have started to deberm the low spots and cut back face slappers to keep the trails in top condition.
We have been hiking some of the trails to knock the berms down and open up the water holes. This will keep the trails a little more dry in case of rain. The trails are riding really well right now.
