I went out to Pioneer Park yesterday afternoon to pre-ride the mountain biking leg of the upcoming Go! Off Road Duathlon (GORD). Ray came along to check out the course. I don’t think I can get him to race, but he offered to volunteer. Thanks Ray!
Almost all of the trails were in very good shape. The one exception was the Legacy Trail, because someone had taken horses on it while it was still soft and damp. There were big horse hoof holes (like the aliteration?) I guess I could have said huge horse hoof holes, that will turn into knarly little bumpies when they dry out. Someone had been doing some erosion control on the trail though….Kudos to them!
