Blue Clay Plans
(updated: Aug 15, 2007)
Last night's ride was fun. It was a great turnout, too. There were three different groups of riders, maybe 20 riders or so total. I managed to get a few shots, but most were blurry because it was getting dark.
Looking like a gang of wheeled locusts about to run me over:
Sir Launch on the jump:
Sir Bikes on the second small jump:
So come this Fall when it gets cooler we'll be ready to add some more trail. If you're interested in helping out sign up by joining the Mailing List, or just keep checking the site for announcements.
I'd really like to get hold of some large rocks and rock armor the hilly side to make a nice tech section, kinda like this. Anyone know where we can get some rocks? The rock quarry in Castle Hayne?
Recently in Dupont State Forest the SORBA guys did some trail maintenance. Check out the rocks they put in:
And of course if we do that at Blue Clay we'll need one of these:
And then I'm going to build one of these, because we need a teeter-totter:
Who wants to do the dirt jumps?

SBA, what section are we going to expand for new trails this fall? And are we going to be able to hold a race there this year?
Looks like you had a good turn-out, man I hate having a gimp hand...

Next time you come up, we'll load the van with some stones for ya! would kinda suck on the gas mileage though! telling ya find a source of busted up concrete, the Great wall trail @ FATS Augusta used tons on Contrete rubble, and made some cool rock gardens out of it! if it's free you cant beat it,
i feel for with all that sand.... kinda reminds me of that Sam Kinison skit:
" See this? It's Sand....What's it gonna be in a hundred years? Fuggin' SAND!!! "
have a nice day!

I am working a construction job in Landfall and the brick masons left their big arch templates. They are fairly large and range in size from 5 foot long and about 8 foot long. They would be great to cover with dirt and make a rythm section. Possibly before a jump? Letme know if you want me to snagg them and drop them off at the parking area. I'm not sure how much longer they are going to be there. Hit me up. G Masta Flex out.

If the templates are made out of treated wood or metal I'd take them but if not then they won't last but a few months. They'll rot quickly and be eaten by termites. The pieces of untreated wood left over from the bridges that were in contact with the ground are filled with termites and already hollowed out.
