270 berm 2008-2009 R.I.P.

The 270 berm was a part of Birdland that never really worked. I rebuilt the damn thing countless times and it still sucked. A photo of a French snake berm in the much coveted Trails Issue of Dig inspired this rebuild. There is still a bit of a hump at the end of the first half of the berm. The ground was still frozen a few inches down so I could only dig so far. Test runs on un-packed dirt on my "freeride" MTB proved the "French Snake" to be much more managable than the 270 ever was. Welcome to Birdland 3.0.

Kzoo outdoor opened yesterday, a month earlier than usual. So stoked to get a half hour in today. That's ever-local Josh with a nice one over the hip in the fresh, warm air. Spring may not be officially here, but days like today got the wheels in motion.

Honestly words cannot describe how much riding there the past two days meant to all of us.
