Now I really wish I was 2 people! Night riding is awesome! It doesn't matter how bright your headlight/ helmet light is you won't be able to see down the hill/ into the holes! Bonus points for riding the course backwards! Right Bucho!
I still have awesome memories of the first time we did this at Grandville's!

I remember how difficult it was to really give it throttle BEFORE we could see the hillclimb. It was pretty scary and difficult to make your body do it. It took us both several tries to make that one hill!

Hey, Brent sorry you make it for the Spring Ride, but I really hope the dates line up for you on future rides this year. I hope to do more this year! As a first responder, you deserve some quality time, when you get off.

Hey, Phil and others that I haven't seen for awhile, so glad you guys can be there! The trails are looking SWEET :thumbup:

Just a little more motivational video to get the party going!

In! Hopefully I can get out of work early-ish Friday. Definitely up for some night time riding as I want to try out my set up for the 24 hour race :thumbup:

I have had a bunch of people from this DAMN site and from the R&T Rascals PM me for directions. I always enjoy taking new people out and showing them the good lines in the trail system and safeguarding them from technical features that they may not be ready to try (you know some of the bypasses around the roller coaster section) :whoop: . I would most greatly appreciate some of the more accomplished riders here with superior familiarity of the Barton trail system, welcome some of new riding by piloting them around for a lap or two :cheers:.

Btw, as many of you know the "Hard Wood Section" (just before you pop-up out of the woods at the shop) is being logged for the purpose of Tree Farm status. That section should be interesting at best :lurker: .

I have all the "old" trail memorized very well.
If there are some new lines, I might need to be led on a tour on Friday afternoon. But after that, I'm happy to play guide.

And I'm out now. I was only able to come on Saturday and now I have to stay home and wait on the phone repair man instead. :censored:

Myself a buddy (Hollywood on here) and my son will be coming up Friday afternoon. Haven't been in a few years and am stoked the stars finally aligned for this one. Once again thanks for opening up your property to these DAMN fools to ride.

I saw mention earlier of possible cancellation due to rain. Any word on this? And how much rain was there? Will it impact the trails significantly?

Thanks for any updates!
