I'm a few days behind in posting this news, but I am currently dependent on a crack team of JBarCycling field agents to keep me informed of events on the ground. Sam Ledbetter advised late last week that the bypass necessitated by the construction of the BDB west ramp had been closed and that the rebuilt trail section had been opened.
The bypass, now closed, provided some entertainment in its early weeks as befuddle riders often stalled and dismounted or faced the sharp-turning descent with wide-eyed fear.
When the new ramp opens on August1, it will merge with the westbound trail here near the Jimerson Creek Bridge
Beware of Misleading Signs!
Don't believe everything you read (unless you read it here!).
Thanks to Sam Ledbetter for the photos and the report.
