The summer is in full swing, so I have decided to boot up a video blog to document the happenings for what's already a big 2016... The usual Dudes capers in some bite size portions to help keep the spirits peaking all summer long.
Building trails is a favourite past time for me and a solid day digging is only second to a solid day riding. Or a solid day digging followed by a solid day's riding on what's just been dug-in is probably the ultimate. I set about something fun and easy this time as I hacked my new line into the hillside.
I think it's a 'trail builders curse' that once you ride your creation it's always tighter than planned. Making the most of the pedal up or just loving a turn slap, it's always too tight when I dig. This new creation is on the tight side but then maybe that's the challenge? I reckon about 5-laps in and it's riding perfectly! The ruts are narrow but strong and the line swooshes from rut to rut with ease. No dead spots or time to sit back. Just hammer some turns, pop out the bottom and go for another...
