I am not an activist in the protesting, letter writing sense. Instead, I use a chainsaw to speak for me. Let me explain: It was probably around the 20th time I’d heaved my bike over the large tree blocking the trail. “When are they going to get out here and cut these %^&*ing trees?,” I… Read More ›

Despite logging well over 1,000 miles of running and riding on the TRT, there was that one elusive section. We finally knocked it out, racking up close… Read More ›
