When are you heading out ?


We are going to try to be heading out from West Branch lot around 5:15. Your welcome to join. It will probably be a medium paced ride but group ride none-the-less.


Might be a little tight for a 5:15 for me but maybe we will cross paths.
Still thinking about a Onyx to Bloomer retrobution for the pain it caused me yesterday :)

All of Stony is perfect right now. Just a wee bit of water on the two track in the usual areas around the back of the park. It's really, really, really nice out there.

So I gotta ask, is Stony beat to *beep* after the Endurance race today? I don't think we got a ton of rain but just wondering how much work is going to need to be done out there now?

Actually, no. During the race today I walked all of the single track and most of the race route two track, and while the worst is The Pines, it's no worse than it would be on any other damp spring day. There's no real major ruts and nothing to really worry about, just a smooth / greasy layer over otherwise firm soil. The two track is actually in better shape than normal, as the rain kept the sand/gravel packed together.

AWESOME! I'm always amazed at how well Stony does with the rain. Good to hear!

As Pete/PK said yesterday, the spots that were showing some issues are spots that had issues that needed to be fixed anyways. The race didn't do anything the highlight the spots that need attention.

Agreed the only real problem areas were on the 2 track the little used connectors and the spots in the pines that we didn't get to the last trail day. Oh and that is conditions as of 8:30 pm last night. I did a stay warm lap after race course closed just for fun.

I'd like to do some filling of low spots in the Pines Saturday am.
Let me know if you're able to help.
I need to be out there early, (7AM) Sat morning.
Another wheelbarrow would help.
I'm planning to haul in the fill from the 2-track and use Quickcrete to firm it up.

Thanks, Pete.

The pines were a little sloppy. Everything else is great. Something horrible died by the stump pump. It reeks of death and fecces
Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.
