    Hi Aaron. There is no more trail development at this time. There's pretty much only two of us and all we can do is to just try to keep it open. I've been working on just clearing it since we opened...

    Tube or tubeless tires?

    I've ordered a new 2011 Trek Hi-Fi Deluxe 29er and I'm thinking about having the tires converted to tubeless. Is anyone running tubeless and do you recommend it or not?

    We don't worry much about how wet it is. When other trails are closed we ride HopePark. It drains well in most areas since it's so hilly, plus if there's any sort of problem we will just fix it. The...
