Addison Oaks is almost a sure bet this time of year. Unless a Monsoon arrives Thursday afternoon, Addison will be in good shape.
Pauly (the trail maintenance guy) takes excellent care of the trail, so it is almost always clear, and sheds water quickly.

Be sure to post a ride report!

Yes, Addison is the 401 of mountain biking trails.
Also, be sure to ride Bald Mt. North. You Might save parking fees by parking in the local school, but I not sure.
The white pates with the little crown might cause school security some concern.

If you have time there is a group ride at LOHS this evening at 6:00 or 6:30 depending on where you start from and will hit part of the Bald Mountain South Unit so you could potentially hit three trails today. See the LOHS ride info. The LOHS trail is a little different than Addison :twisted:

Trail was great today! Pauly has been hard at work for sure. He showed me the new bike repair stand in front of the club house. Very nice. Has tools and air. What a great trail

Agreed, it was in prime shape. This is about as good as it gets out there.

Addison was fast and smooth today. Pauly's "fingerprints" were everywhere. Some of the fresh patches of gravel were loose, so be alert.

Indeed!
We made use of the bike repair stand to change out a tube. Amazing what a $5 entry fee gets you at a well-run park!

Kinda weird out there this morning as they had a section of trail close off for bees? I rode around the tape and kept riding, no issues. Maybe they already took care of the nest and didn't remove the tape.

Loving it out there, Pauly is awesome! Two newly added berms in a week? Only at addison, this has become my favorite trail to ride.

We rode Addi today for the first time this year. It just keeps getting better! We've been riding here since 1996 and have seen the work that Pauly and others have done. Thanks to all who keep this gem shining! :D

Rode a couple laps early afternoon and it was just as perfect as it can get. Since my last ride there Pauly has worked on putting some additional berms and he and others have filled in some rutted areas.I saw and talked with Pauly in parking lot after my ride and as others ride by he always thanks them for riding Addison.
That trail is certainly the best flowing trail we have in the metro area. A blast to ride.

Can anyone give a report on the conditions today? I was thinking of heading out there this afternoon but since we had such a rain yesterday I don't want to waste a trip if it's a mud pit.

We rode Bald Mountain North yesterday (just across the street from Addison) and it was dry except for the chronically muddy spots. Since Pauly has dispatched all muddy spots from Addison, I'm sure it will be in great shape.

Can we clone Pauly? Put his clones at a few other trails?

No water or mud at all. Great riding. There were a couple of horses on the 2 track going back to the road. Just stopped and let them walk by. They were nice. One horse was wearing a hat and the other had a mask. I didn't know people tricked out their horses like mt bikers trick out their bikes.
