BYT jump line is sweet....

Rode BYT  on Tuesday morning and it was great. The new carpet jump line is uber smooth and a blast to flow on. Great job guys. One unrelated question. When you ride the extremely difficult trail slong the creek, is that a two way trail and the only way to get too and from the  other sections of trails?  It seems impossible to ride that trail on the return back. My Strava ride is attached. Whatever happens  with all the changes etc and unless I am missing it, is there anyway to figure out a way to loop it back someway?

By your Strava map you missed about 2 or so miles in the middle 1/3. There is a return trail you missed a turn. At least that what it looks like to me.

That's what I was thinking.  There's no reason to come back along the creek backwards (beside it being ridiculously difficult to do).  I like worker rider think you missed a turn. Smiley

Sounds like you might have taken the "2-way" shortcut into the reverse direction of the trial instead of bearing right to follow the main trail.

I plan to check it out this weekend.  Will try to poast up my STRAVA map if it differs!

Your Strava map will be different. He took a left instead of going straight at the intersection. I will be out Sunday doing a final walk through with the greenway people before the woods start getting clear cut next week for the greenway. Ride across the service road while you still can. I will also be taking down the rest of the signs across the service road to be reused some where else. It will be closing next week for 1 1/2 years or so.
