Trail's in great shape this evening. Yesterday's short rain added some moisture into the trail, giving some grip it hasn't seen in awhile. A few wet spots, but trail is otherwise great.

The post at the point where the new section joins the existing trail has been removed. I tossed it into the brush that was used to block the old trail off.

I've been hearing that the trail portion of the Maybury Time Trial Race is being run the normal direction of the trail this year, not backwards. Friday pre race riding will also be the normal trail direction. No backwards riding Friday or Saturday. (or any other day) :wink:

Will we be able to ride the whole route before the time trials?

No, just the regular trail. The "special" sections will still be off limits to bikers until the actual race.

For those who chase PB on the trail, does it take longer or shorter to complete the new route compared to the old route? I haven't paid attention to the actual distance, but it feels like the new route is a tad longer.

The route is definitely longer. By my cyclocomputer its about 1/3 mile longer.

Fantastic shape yesterday. Hats off to those who worked on this trail before the race last weekend.

WOW! Trail was in great shape today! Forgot why I love this trail. Now I remember. Though I thought there was a new trail head? I didn't see one though, and everyone else seemed to be using the old one so that's what I used.

Trail was perfect this morning. No standing water or real soft spots, but yet tacky enough for grip

There's a new trailhead. You probably rode right past it on the way to the old one. The old one still has the sign and is usable. The new one is right were the paved path splits into a fork for the last segment before the old/traditional trailhead. The new trailhead sends you right up the new climb immediately. (I kinda like the old trailhead, which can be used with the new reroute.)
