Maybury was hit a little hard by yesterday's storm, much like the rest of Northville. About four trees down, and several puddles. Saw the DNR out with chainsaws, so hopefully it will be back in shape soon.

Still some trees down across the trail, and there were some slick mud puddles. If you can handle your bike you should be ok. I fell.

Still quite few trees down. Need chainsaw. One midway between 1st asphalt and second asphalt crossing. One before winter loop turn. One after rock gardens.

4 total not counting the couple over head that are not a problem.
That first one you mention is right after the new berm.
Yep 2nd one is just before the cut off.
The 3rd one is just past where the tricycle used to be.
The 4th one is not very far from the 3rd one.

Oh, no- the tricycle is gone? I hadn't noticed... I wonder if a felled tree took it out... :(

I think somebody moved it, but I forget where it is now.

We will have trail work days leading up to the August race, but I am not sure if the Trail Coordinator has any planned before then. Feel free to go out and lop. Usually, the DNR would have to saw the trees...

Heard the ranger at Maybury left. Wonder if it will get done by them?!? Do we need to check with the TC or office before "volunteering"?

Feel free to get info from Mike Flack (sherpaboy), the TC- he was going to meet the new DNR staffer.

Just an FYI for those who ride at Maybury:

The Metro South chapter meeting will be held Monday, June 14th at Maybury State Park. We have the Oak Shelter reserved (the one by the modern bathroom) from 4 pm- dusk/closing.

The meeting starts at 7 pm.

Please bring your bike, and get there early and ride before and/or after the meeting!

We will have grilled sausages and burgers (plus veggie versions of both) for donations.

We have promoted this meeting at the parks where people ride in hopes that we?ll get some interested ?future? members out to meet and greet. Bring a friend so s/he can see what the MMBA is all about!

Let?s hope for good weather. But the shelter is covered. If there is a really, really bad storm predicted for the time during the actual meeting, we?ll announce an indoor location Monday.

The agenda will be posted on the MMBA site this weekend.

Folks from other chapters and non members are welcome to join us for an evening of riding and enjoying each other's company.

Thanks,

6/11 PM - Haven't seen maybury this muddy all year. all trees are clear, but many many mud holes, two or three big ones, and couple more small ones, all scattered throughout. If you want to get an idea of how muddy, I had mud all over the shins and riding bib.

Wouldn't recommend riding it really, until it clears up more.... mud hole just gets deeper and more ruttier.... But couple of "hardcore" Wednesday night riders rode three laps on it, so..... to each his own i guess.

Made it out there Friday after noon, great job on the tree clearing accomplishments. A few areas of standing water and mud that were easily rode through, nothing slippery around turns. Be careful and ride smart - trail is OK to ride. Many people were on the trail Friday. If we get a rain Sat/Sun, I would say avoid for at least 36 hours, maybe more.

No rain yet today (sat june 12) and it's perfect. A couple mud holes, but tacky and fast. Go ride before it rains again!
