    Hopefully not forever. Actually a friend of mine will be meeting with the "Powers that be" regarding E38 and he plans to try to educate them about DHing in the area. More info on that as it develops.

    DHR, could you elaborate on your friend's $250 ticket? Were they nabbed riding the trails or what? Who issued the ticket? When was this?
    Thanks, John

    I went to 38 this weekend and got busted. They didnt give me a ticket though..... instead they used a portable chop saw and cut my bike into pieces.....






    Untill someone posts a real image of thier ticket, I claim that there is an elitist plot to scare people away from the trails. Without proof were free to develop conspiracy theorys......

    I kind of agree, but keep in mind, the operative word there is TRY. :cool:

    +1: Conspiracy plot to steer people away.

    I have never met a physical person that has gotten a ticket for this.... Just e-stories.

    Actually 38 is going to close this winter. From snow. Word around the campfire is certain people shouldn't try discouraging other to ride trails they don't do any trailwork on. Man i love rumors....

    I do know that as of last week, they have signs posted saying that the forest is closed to mountain bikes.

    I don't know about tickets though...

    BigB you back in action? Glad to see you are alive man. You missed a great summer of shredding. 38 is indeed closed and the tickets are real.
    The signs are there and 27 is out as well. Good luck to us all. Give me a buzz when you get a chance.

    Again, none of this is believeable 'till the photos are posted showing the signs. Just more fuel to the conspiracy. :thumb:

    Hmmmmm...

    No pics of signs, tickets or even the "powers that be" - methinks this is the work of vampires since they can't be photographed. Is Transylvania remotely close to 38?:confused:

    theres a wormhole in the trees that actually takes you right to draculas castle. In fact, its right next to the signs and the rangers giving tickets. :D

    The answer is simple if this is indeed the situation we're up against. WEAR GARLIC!!! Vampires despise garlic. I'd recommend a wooden stake, but if you had to bail it could get ugly.

    Now if we could just locate the Whistler wormhole.:monkey:

    I am thinking about going there soon to ride it anyways
    so I will check out all these claims and i will take pics of these signs if there are any.
    Is E38 a mudhole this time of the year
    or is it still good?
    Thanks

    Don't forget your camera and take a picture of the no bikes sign right as you turn off the pavement. Which is in itself a joke as you can ride the gravel roads all day long if you like...

    Yup, I'm back and I've only dislocated my shoulder since I broke my wrist (is that good or bad?) Anyway, PM your phone number because I've had no luck getting ahold of you. I know our Banshee riding friend has tried to hook us all up for a few trips, but it seems like schedules are always getting in the way.

    I just finished up building my Knolly V-tach and tried it out up by Bellingham. WOOHOO!! Frigg'in awesome rig! I can't wait till spring when I can really pin it without slip-slid'in all over the trail.

    As soon as it stops raining I'll be at Sea-tac. Do you still get any runs in there?

    I'm already missing the exits... :mumble:

    Way to run a good conspiracy....

    By the looks of it though, only fully rigid bikes are banned. You could use the defence that you thought the sign was warning of the dangers of that kind of bike on those trails.....

    Damage to a DNR asset is...damage to a DNR asset.Whether hiking,biking or 4wd,if they percive the usage as a threat to the dollar value of the timber then it's their call.
