First time at Six Mile today.
Fast, Fun, and very well groomed. :D

I had forgotten how much fun it is to ride a new place. I look forward to go back very soon.

What time of day did you ride? Evening?

It was around lunch time. Perfect conditions :getsome:
I was asking because I'll be looking to occasionally head over there for rides around 3:30-4PM with Army of Fred and was wondering if that would ever be workable for you.

Goverment types don't really know what to do with mt bike trails..

J,

You must sleep less than I do. I'm on drugs that keep me up 20 hours a day. What's your excuse?

Franklin Township is great isn't it. Most of these people are my customers.

6 Mile run has been nice. We've been doing a tuesday night ride with a decent turn out for the past 3 weeks. Mostly SS'ers, many 29'ers.

I have been working 12 hour days and I still sleep like 6 hours.

I have heard that you guys have been out there. I am glad that the trails are getting such use. A few years back when i started working on the trails there it would get really overgrown in the Summer. The amount of use seems to be really on the rise. I have been sending many people there to check it out. I am sure you have been doing the same.

I sold my light a while back and i am sort of waiting to see what is coming out this fall before I get a new one.

It looks like they are having a meeting on June 13th to discuss the future of the area trails. It might be good to have a bunch of folks show up there. It might be useful to have a GPS map printout showing what actually exists out there. Clearly they don't know.

I am considering it but I have been working till 8 almost every day.

Make yourselves a JORBA chapter

Hey folks, If you are going to attend this meeting with a GPS map and list of previous TMs your guys did at 6 mile, please consider becoming a JORBA chapter. This will hopefully give you more clout on what you've done there and why. The idea is to say you are building sustainable multi-use trails so no one can kick you off the trails you are maintaining. Contact Mergs, he can help you keep control of your trails and hopefully get more funding to buy tools and supplies. Heck, perhaps you guys could put on a SS race at 6 mile.

what should be said at this meeting?

Tell them that you are a good citizen of the town.

You are a cop.

You enjoy slumber party's with drunken bearded men. (maybe keep this to yourself..)

You ride your bike on the well maintained trails nearly every day and you like them the way that they are.

Adding paved or crushed stone trails would be a major mistake.

Single track trails are always preferred.

Mechanized trail work is unnecessary.

You are willing to volunteer your time and energy for trail work and design.

Tell them that this area is literally the last remaining Jewel in a land of over development. Adding too much human comforts to this park will be a mistake. Leaving it as close to it's natural form is the best course of action.

Adding a bridge over the water span west of middelbush would be wise. Other than that Little needs to be done other that proper signage and trail recognition.

I need a tour. I've been here twice and haven't found anything like the video had.

Someone post up their trail to ride from 27 ;)

My friend Drew used to work there. I'm about 5 minutes from Halters. I'll have to stop in and check it out.

Thanks!
