Memorial Day Ride - Neustadt (27 May) 0930 at 49.310351,8.103692.

Post by airborne.s2000 on Tue Apr 30, 2013 10:51 am

Anyone interested in riding Neustadt on Memorial Day? I don't have anything on my calendar yet, and can devote the rest of the weekend to my wife if I am riding Monday.

I might be in. There are some trails I want to check out between Kalmit and St Martin.

Well, shoot- I guess if B. is out, we'll have to make it a shuttle-run day from Kalmit. We have four decent descents from parking lot to parking lot, with lots of rocks and roots to gnaw on along the way. Any takers?

I performed a good full-face helmet test yesterday out there on the descent to St Martin, neck brace and all, and it works pretty well. Once I got that out of my system, I didn't need it the rest of the day. You could do it on a hard tail.

How intense are the runs? Need a DH ride, full susp, etc? We could make this the meeting ride...if we can get a decent number to sign on.

you could do it on a HT, just pick your lines well. We want to shuttle this so if you have a car or truck that can haul a lot, that would be awesome.

found this video. It is the top half of one of the trails we will hit on Monday.


The trail gets even better after the video cuts off. Several Km's of sweet singletrack.

That IS nice...looks pretty do-able w/a hardtail. I may be in for this. Maybe I'll shuttle myself back up for the extra w/o.

What the hell? The video I posted yesterday was 5 min long. The one on here now is 43sec. I guess I will repost the longer video

that's not the trail we plan on riding Mark. We follow that trail for about 300m or until the 1:10 point in you vid then make a right.

Yep! That's the one! Gotta spend some time on those built-ups to figure out the rhythm and speed, and the nearest evac point with cellular coverage. Well, for me anyway.

so who is in on this? Looks like it might be a little muddy. The bottom parking lot will be great for some bratwurst and beer afterwards. If you have a vehicle that can haul several people and or bikes, it would be ideal for this. the more we can move with the least amount of vehicles the better. It would be great to be able to make a few runs before having to reposition all of the vehicles.
