Conditions today were as advertised: a couple puddles in the new-ish stuff at the top of the start hill, and the puddle in the apex of the curve in the huge field. Other than that, the trail was in beautiful shape and fast as heck :D .

Rode it yesterday for the first time. Only two wet spots. However, it was raining this morning.

I know Addison can get really messy when it's muddy, however, I haven't been out there in a few years and I keep seeing that it's one of the better options. Do folks that ride there think it will be dry tonight?

Never mind, got the info. Apparently it's in great shape as of 19 minutes ago. PCB's Facebook page is very informative!

I bypassed the top of the hill section that was (still) wet. The area out in the field was firming up in the sunshine. Otherwise, very fast!

One other thing: The clear-cutting now extends to the initial uphill from the new trailhead. Consequently, there is a bit of flotsam & jetsam on the initial climb. Passable, but please use caution.

Rode it tonight. Just 2 soft spots on top of the hill at the begining of the trail. Fast and great shape. Seems as if some roots are more pronounced, or I just get holder ....

Hopefully my fiancee will be riding soon with groups, but she's just getting started so it'll take a bit before she's doing the likes of Addison and Bald Mountain.
