Beaverdale Park Single Track coming soon!



Spent another hour or so hiking around Beaverdale Park yesterday afternoon. Should be able to get at least 1.5 miles of single track in there. Nothing to be shits and giggles about, but when I'm shooming that shit before work IT WILL BE GREAT! Des Moines Park and Rec. are on board for adding trail to their parks. So little slivers of "Dirty Ribbons" as I like to call it could soon be hit up by simply riding black label from green space to green space of single track:) Thats pretty fucking cool, considering these parks aren't low lying areas like the rest of our City single track.
After hiking around I went over to Bike World to chat up Rumey about some brazing of brake bosses on the back of the Dirty Balloon'r. Bill said bring it in, so I'm shits and giggles kids! Dropping that rig off today:) Sure don't like the cold spell thats brought its self back into Des Moines. Said fuck the ride again today....I'm so fucking tiered of layering up. Come on Spring!

As I rode through that park last weekend, I was thinking of the same thing. Potential for good downhill surfing.

yep, contour surfing down, back up, then back down again and out is pry how its going to be. With a small lollipop loop on the other finger. The stuff north of the house is no good.

let me know when your going down to work, if im not working I'll come help. I love that park we used to go there as teenagers and drink beer in those 'woods' That hillside should make some sweet single track.

Yup, I was a bit short on layers last night. I didn't think it would drop temp quite that quick and then got some rain/sleet crap. It sucked. Where's my warm(er) weather?!

Looks to be a good track. Is the park nice?
