The new trail section is open for riding. Follow the orange ribbon. Thanks to Amber, Eric and Kurt for their work and to Scott for dropping off and picking up the MMBA trailer.

Shoe I have the day off. Lets ride the Robinette's and you can give me the new guided tour. I live a 1.6 miles from the trail.

Thanks for all your hard work in opening up more trail and cleaning the old. I was not able to make it due to racing events I had scheduled. If any of you are familiar with the trails at Owasippie I just wanted to post up that they have been opened back up and a sign was put in at the trail head with waviers and day or annual passes to pay Al and Larry and the Maintence garage.

I Just got back from the Xterra Off-Road Triathlon at Owasippie, it was a very tough course. The most fun I've had to date on a mountain bike.. I might look to ride Robinette's this Sunday August 30th if there are any other taking out there.. I'll see how the weather fans out.

The trail is fully marked now with yellow/black arrows and orange ribbon. You can find your way around it no problem. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet myself and won't today, but have at it. Report back what you think of it, ok?

The trail continues to get better with more riders cutting in the newer parts of the old/re-opened part on the north side of the property. Give it a try - it's completely different than SGA, Ski Area, or Luton Park - much more rugged and technical with some short steep climbs scattered around.

This is not a beginner trail so for the intermediate and advanced level riders: bring your kids and significant others to check out the other areas of Robinette's while you ride. This fall they will be opening a corn maize, they have a wine tasting room, cider, apples, and other fruits, bakery and gift barn. Consider reciprocating their support.

Robinettes have put a piece of snow fence across the mountain bike trail to guide people who are picking fruit. It is not to block the trail for us and they left room for bikes to ride around it.

A couple of trees down on the trail and a couple of duck-unders out there. Otherwise all good.
