Cape Cod's Willow St trails are diagonally across the street from my work. Like most of the trails in #NEMTB territory, there's too much snow to ride, and the trails are in need of serious post-Nemo maintenance.
So today's lunch was spent starting the trail cleaning process. I grabbed my handsaw and went out on the Niner One 9.
|Single Speed and hand saw...trail clearing necessities|
|Trailhead greeting previewed things to come.|
After a bit of sawing, riding, and hiking, I came upon this big one.
Too thick for a handsaw and in a spot where hopping it wasn't realistic for a big guy with limited skills such as meself. So I decided to use the branches that fell down around it to make it a rideable ramp. As you can see in the vid, it was hard to get any speed into it because of the snow, but I think it'll be a cool feature eventually...
I only got about a mile of work done, if that. There's about 12 miles total in there, so lots more to come.
Thanks for reading...
