Distributing a little dirt in Cuyuna’s Yawkey unit

The trails in Cuyuna’s Yawkey Unit are about as good as it gets: reasonably hard-packed, just wide enough, and fun. Haul Road trail is truly amazing, almost as fast as riding on dirt. And you really can get some speed on Bobsled. Wheeeeeeee.

However, there are a just a handful of spots on Yawkey’s south-facing trails where there’s a little bit of ice from snow melt so this morning, Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew (CLMTBC) member John Schaubach and I rode around and put dirt on them.  That’ll make things a little less tricky  for tonight’s s Cuyuna Lakes Whiteout group ride.

    Yep, that’s me Tom Osborne. It was fun meeting you. Cool site, your viewers might wonder about my right foot gear. That’s a Bledsoe boot covered by an old jeans leg and held on by a bungee strap! Anything to keep riding right?!

    Hey Tom, thanks for chiming in with details on the anything-to-keep-riding foot gear. Classy!

    I’ve updated the photo above to include your last name.

    Thanks! It was fun visiting that day. The boot kept me on the trail until my surgery date yesterday. I’ll be back riding in May… with the boot again for awhile I suppose.
