Stromberg Flowtrail Season Opener

Post by thedude76 on Thu Mar 14, 2013 4:23 pm

Time to break out the full face helmets and the body armor. The flow trail opens on 13 April.
There is something for everyone. Beginner to Advanced. This is a great opportunity to work on your skills, build confidence and get introduced to a new type of riding. Even if you dont like air time you can still cruise the trails and lay into some berms. On the easy trails there are ways to cut around all of the jumps so you dont have to jump if you dont want to. the Blue and Red marked trails are do-able with a hardtail, but a fully is recommended. Come out and get in on the action.
Meeting at Parking Lot #5 lat=49.93448326 lon=7.772805690

Try to carpool, the parking lots are small and its better for the planet anyway.

The date for this has been changed to 13 April. The flow trail is in need of some repairs and they can not be completed due to current trail conditions. Details are on their homepage [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Depends on if my van starts in the morning- it's been sitting since October... Damnit Bobby wants to carpool as well. I suppose we'll have to leave around 0830, but I think we should go a little earlier than that. I'll know more later tonight. Got a goddamned honey-do A-bomb in the mean time, so coffee coffee coffee.

check the website in the morning before you roll out. There should be a green light on it.

The RED snowman or whatever that is means it's still closed. I would check after 0900.

Not really. You can get down the place easily without anything special.
