Robert Burton, Charlie Mock, Mark Yarbrough, Mike Mixon and I built a rock bridge near Dickey Branch today. There's a dip that fills with nasty mud and water during the winter and spring months. A couple of years ago, someone laid some rocks to one side where you could walk your bike across. Now there is an all-season bridge there. Be the first to ride it and give us your feedback.
To seenvic - answer: yes - this spot is shortly before getting to the service road that crosses Dickey Branch - largest creek that is floored with concrete bars - going CW. But the rock line really was not rideable - very unstable and off-line.
I know that one cold winter ride it was deeper than my axles there. Awesome job!
Unfortunately a lot of times when that spot is full, all of the leaves tend to only settle half way down in the puddle. More than one time I thought I was getting ready to pedal through 5 inches of water that quickly turned into nearly a foot. Doesn't lead to a pleasant experience in most cases, especially during the winter!
Rode it after work today (10/4) and it rides very smooth. Went over it a few times in both directions. Awesome job and a big thanks to Charlie, Mike, Robert, Mark and Dale.
Also note there is an abandoned bike (Wally World special) between the bridge that was just fixed and Keg Creek proper. rear wheel and seat are off. Maybe someone can make a wind chime with it out there?
