"Thanks, that was a clear and concise description of the situation. Perhaps if Haddon is looking for people to help with his "project" it might behoove him to describe said project properly and not assume that everyone rides that section…"

"What you are describing is a fluvial deposit denuded onto the pavement after hydraulic erosion has occurred within the soil at the higher elevations to the sides of the path. I thought this was about dirt jumps. "

"It is mud that washed down onto the path around the aquarium.  It is pretty deep and when it is wet not only is it dirty but it sucks in your tires.  And when it is dry it is a rutted mess because people rode through it when it was wet.…"

Cleaning the Dirt Jump by the Aquarium.

You know the one I'm talking about, a dirt track on the north side of the aquarium that is scary.Who has a flat shovel (I don't) and half an hour this saturday morning??I'll meet you there at 6AM and if a couple guys show up we can make that thing go away.  I know there is the whole 'lets call the aquarium and complain' but I think the best / easiest thing to do is just move it since no one really is going to otherwise, its been there for weeks.Anyone feeling proactive?…See More

Front Racks

I've had a front rack for a bit, is it just me or is there a solid uptick in general  in bikers using front racks?There is the whole 'basket in the front' thing - is this passing a bit? I think for weight balance that it's better for any carry load to be in the front as ~70% of a riders weight is on the back wheel.Anyway bonus, not a biker (if only)See More
