Lars took the group up qualifier, dropped chopping block to the canal trail, up Hazel creek to a loop around (see maps above on top right area). Local unknown got a rear flat and I stayed back to make sure everything was safe. With a quick repair, Local unknown and I met up with the group. A decision was made to long ride. Local unknown headed down barnes back towards home while the 8 others headed off to Cappys crossing (is that right?). We crossed MET headed downhill when all of the sudden, Councilman when down from a rut in the trail. Councilman's knee and forearm took a beating. After Cappy's crossing, Lars took us back to MET to drop the left lip. The ramp on the left lip decent is now completely un-rideable. At the bottom we headed clockwise around the lake and Lars decided to wrestle with a tree by heading straight in to it but got more hurt than the tree. We skipped Palins, took a brief swim and headed off to tacos.
