       Had the good fortune to ride it right after the trail crew had wrapped up a lot of great work today. It's in amazing shape and even faster. Thank you FOTW!

       Thanks to the trail crew for putting in some small but fun (optional) features. One thing, in general that VT lacks, compared to many other places I’ve ridden, is features.
