This coming Sunday there is a Group Ride to Bluffton with some out of towners from Milwaukee. Be at T-Bock's at 10:30 a.m. and ready to pedal whenever.
If you've rode Van Peenen lately, you've noticed that there are some trees down and some changes to the fencing in the top sections. I tried taking a picture of this tree that landed right on top of the little jump in the last 40 yards of Upper Pali, but it was a little dark. The very top part of Smeby's is blocked off due to a new barb wire fence that was recently moved over into the trail. There will be a work day to re-route the trail coming up and clearing out the downed trees.
