Late ride at Thomas 5-4-10?

Postby iLuvTechnical » Tue May 04, 2010 5:02 pm

Anyone want to meet at Thomas to do a few laps around 7:30pm tonight?
I have to go to my daughter's school play first and then plan on being out there if they're any takers.
There is always someplace in the world dry enough for kick'n up a little dirt.

Wish I would have seen this sooner. I rode Thomas around 6:00 PM while my wife took my daughter to track practice. I got to say, it's shaping up nice. Though it's still a little technical in some spots for me, and the climbing was kicking my a$$. I do like the two logs on the main trail...jumping over 'em is helping with my riding confidence. Anyway, it's nice to have a trail like this close to my home. It's great when I don't have much time and want to get a ride (workout) in.

Nice job Chris. :clap:

Marion, If you go in the front off of first/7th ave,(Marion blvd on that map ) follow the gravel trail into the park south, once you go near some trees, keep your speed up and shoot up the trail on your right, navigate some twisty turns and then have some fun.
