And still more logging…

Okay, I’ll admit it… I’ve been spending a lot of time on the couch lately with the cold weather, but I have managed to get out on weekly rides. I might have sat out last week’s ride until news came that logging was about to start on the Lower Cumberland trails once again. After hearing that I managed to round up a few friends (and their dogs) and we went for a farewell ride on a couple of the trails that were on the chopping block.

It was a fairly decent 2.5 hr ride. We started off on 42nd, over Sykes Bridge, up to Teapot, around Allen Lake, over to Shaker (one of the doomed trails) and ended on Space Nugget. Colin managed to borrow a helmet cam from a friend and shot the following videos:

I’m hoping to get out on Shaker and Entrails again before they start logging that area. Below is a map of the trails that are affected. It’s been a busy year for logging this year, but hey, at least we know they won’t be logging these trails again for at least another 40 years!

    Wow, trails with bridges! I got a taste of that in Whistler. Not quite that skinny, though. That’d nerp me out a bit until I got used to it!
