Unfortunatley I have some really bads news to report today. Sometime this week the ‘property owner’ of the area we all call ‘Locals Only’ is now ‘CLOSED’ indefinenately until problems with this particular owner can be resolved. Several tree’s have been ‘downed’ crossing and blocking this section of trail.
It was reported to me today while driving around the heights of Hood River that our beloved Post Canyon supporter Andrew Denniak of New York Subs was involved in a 30+ mile an hour crash, destroying his prized Ellsworth Evolution 29r and Fox 29r Fork on “locals Only” doing a total of $3400 in damage. He was extremely lucky to not suffer any injuries and was able to ‘limp’ his bike down to his vehicle. So in honor of Andrew D, we ask everyone to stop by his FAMOUS Hood River NY Sub Shop and grab a bite this week. Here’s a ghastily image of his bike sitting at Dirty Fingers for repair.
Henry Buckalew of Hood River County Forest Management has posted a ‘Trail Closure’ notice on the HR County website today. Until further notice- lets get the word out to fellow bikers before they head out. Signs are being constructed as I type this out and will be in place informing anyone ‘not in the loop’ of the closure. Please leave me a comment if you notice anything odd or out of the usual on the trails. Stay viligent folks. We need the eyes and ears.
