Be carefull with 2nd drop on Upper Loch Ness
« on: June 07, 2008, 03:12:25 PM »
On the 2nd drop (coming from Loch Ness) it has gotten very sandy and there is now about 12-14 inch drop into it.  It will surprise you if you are not ready.  The sand in the drop is very loose and deep and will eat your front wheel and fork if you are not careful.  Best to jump it clean or avoid it.

Garry and the gang fixed that spot up very nicely at the last workday. Rode it yesterday, very smooth now. Big Drop on the other hand is getting rough!
