Last week, Welch Village General Manager Peter Zotalis hosted two test sessions for two of their lift-served gravity flow trails (total four to be built). I was there for both days, and got to ride with two experienced local guys, Clay Haglund (MAMB) and Jason Decoux (CROCT).
I attended Mankato Area Mountain Bikers (MAMB)‘s Bike Walk Week grill out / spring party / fundraising event last Friday. Their Kiwanis mtb trail has a new trail head with a spiffy kiosk:
They’ve made dozens of enhancements to the trail since I was there a year ago, among them a cluster of large concrete chunks that architect Clay Haglund and fellow volunteers have turned into a spectacular XX technical obstacle known as Stonehenge. It has many lines through it, none of which I could clean that day. I blamed the mud but local hotshot Dan Oachs was having far less trouble. I will be back.
These aren’t photos, just some screengrabs of the video I took (below).
