Beanbag riot gun sounds like more fun.

There's also the do you pack heat while you ride thread. Let's join that. We can shoot people on wet trails! I always bring my 9mm anyway ..... not for protection, but just in case someone has a nicer bike than me. "Get off the bike racer boy. It's mine now! "
Yee haw!!!!


I don't have a way to conceal my 9mm in my full race kit...

Wow! The crazyness a simple post creates. haha. Thanks Monkeyevil for letting me know the trail condition. I'm involved with doing trail maintenance at my local trail and know about the hard work that is involved. You guys have a great trail system in Custer and did not want to drive 2 1/2 hours up to find out it is a mess. Thanks

Trail conditions were ideal this morning, but it was already starting to get muddy by 10:00 am. Obviously the early morning ride is the only option at this point, but the forecast doesn't call for it to get below freezing tonight so I doubt believe it will be as good tomorrow as it was today. Hopefully we don't get too much rain Monday and it dries out some this week!

It's been too long since I've been to FC. How's granny's garden?

PERFECT! Dropped 32 out there today just because we didn't want to leave! Trails are in the best condition I have EVER seen them in. Can't believe this is March! Only complaint is there is no foliage if you can even really complain about that! Take some sunscreen because you are pretty much going to be exposed to the sun all day out on the trails.

Great job on the new sections as well to all who were involved, first time riding there since all that was completed.

Red loop was in great shape today. There was a couple trees down. 1 by 16 and another one but I can't remember where it was. It was my first time riding there. The dirt was perfect though.

One of my favorite things is bringing my family camping at Ft. Custer and us all using the color coded map to plan our rides. Will there be an update to that map reflecting the trail separation?

It usually does a pretty decent job at shedding water if it doesn't rain too much. It looks like we got about an inch of rain, which means there will be a couple of muddy and slick spots for sure, but overall I think it should be in fine shape by tomorrow. I'll be out there in the morning for trail day and can post an update on the conditions if that will help you decide on making the trip out or not.

Trail looks good today. There will be some slick spots, but for the most part it should be good to go.
