Very sweaty out there. Biting flies too. (Ride fast)
Very fast conditions this morning (Damp sand).
A couple of greasy spots in the Pines.

Enjoy.
Pete.

Tree down at the bottom of WooHoo hill, hand saw will work, unless someone dragged it off the sand.

Did Stoney Creek get hit with much rain last night? Will the trail be rideable by tonight after work?

We rode an hour after it rained, trail seemed to drain right before our eyes.

Even the pines wasn't too bad, some puddles but nothing that hurt the trails...

...just the drivetrain...

Rode last night after work. Two track leading to the pines had a few puddles in the usual spots but 2 were rather large and deep (probably 4" deep in the middle). The pines had some grease and in hindsight I would have waited another day or so to be able to ride it at normal speed. The Snake was dry and the Roller Coaster had a tiny bit of grease but was good. Everything should be pretty good for this weekend though unless we get more rain. I didn't see any tree down on Woohoo hill so that must have been removed already.

Wanted to get a ride in here before O2S, getting there through the many orange barrel brigades on the freeways meant a one hour and forty five minute drive from Canton *beep* Conditions were good, took the classic Tailwind race route, found plenty of loose hills on the two tracks to try out my new gearing on my fat bike. Everything is dry except for the two puddles noted earlier, you can roll slowly through them, only about an inch or two deep. May Change Sunday afternoon if the rain comes.
