Seriously. I've probably said it a few times but daaaaayum is NE awesome. It's like a 70,000 square mile playground with EVERYTHING.
This past weekend Dustin and I got serious into shredding Pine Hill Park in Rutland, VT. Second trip back and this time without wet leaves everywhere. This made things much more awesome and borderline disastrous. High speeds, ample berms...watch out now! I'll let the edit do the talking. I have a lot of fun every time I ride there, 'nuff said. Got some great 'looking back at the rider' footage...slight tweak to the angle from last time I tried made all the difference and I think its the perfect perspective for these trails.
We saw some idiots on BMX bikes and a crazy bitter grandma who LOVED crapping on anything you said and directing her rage at the incorrect people. She was awesome. She spent a lot of energy trying to reprimand us and another lovely couple for something a stupid kid did and then immediately broke the rules of the park herself before walking off. I pity you crazy bitter grandma.
Also got to chat again with Michael Smith (the supreme chancellor of Pine Hill) and this week he has 430(!!!!!!!) high school kids building/maintaining the trails there for the entire week. I can't even imagine what NEMBA could do with that much manpower. We could rough in 20mi of singletrack at our new spot Page Hill in a day or two let alone a week. Good Lord.
Speaking of Page Hill, I was messing around in the woods there Sunday getting things started with what hopefully will be our own little local Pine Hill Park....here's to dreaming. Check out the details here:
