To the mountain bikers riding past this group of MORC dirt bosses (Drew Diller, Jeff Leech, Porter Million, Reed Smidt) on Friday night on the far west loop of the Carver Lake Park Off-Road Cycling Trail, it probably looked like they were discussing the best place for a picnic. Only partially true.

They were mainly doing planning for an elaborate technical feature in an area called the Playground, using many of the logs that the City of Woodbury graciously piled nearby at their request.  Photo on the right: that’s where they’re planning to eventually put a picnic table.

[Apologies to the young whippersnappers reading this who are all WTF? about the title of the blog post. My geezerly brain sometimes shifts to ancient song lyrics like this one when I have to think of a title.]

    Can’t wait to see what they come up with. I love that elevated skinny that they have in that vicinity also.

    I saw the logs piled up last night and figured it had something to do with a new feature. I can’t wait to see what they have planned. Now to tackle the elevated skinny… bridges scare me, or maybe it’s just the fall.

    Frank, I’m working on a how-to-ride-a-skinny video, as I’ve not found any good ones. In the meantime, I’ll be happy to give you a quick lesson next time I see you on the trails.
