"The routine is the enemy of time"


Original post on Trivial MTB

this looks to be legit. but there is a part of me that wonders if this is really one big Gap Commercial. too many pretty people. mainstreaming adventure.
inspiring nonetheless.

How to corner confidently

A conversation with C Sloan last night reminded me of this great video Lars Sternberg put out a few years ago - like 5 years ago. My how time flies. Still relevant information despite the tiny wheels and lack of dropper post. As if good riding technique was possible before 2015 technology. Proven here.

That is all

Jeff Cook - Hero Status

Jeff Cook has likely brush cut more miles of trail than anyone has or will this year. He is even Strava(ing) his cuts. Next time you are out on a purple(green) trail, and you are able to see the trail or notice you are not getting your arms ripped off by salmonberry or blackberry, he is likely to thank.

There have been many other volunteers out cutting this year who also deserve some credit. 

And! DNR has had crews brush cutting this year too. At one time this was common in Capitol Forest - DNR brush cutting. It is great to see DNR back with the labor resources. 

Capitol Forest is getting better every year.
