Trail was so very perfect today and weather was incredible. Surprised I didn't see more people there. Rode two laps and a ride around paved path with my wife and a friend.
Afterwords a nice place for food is the Celtic Knot in Lakeville. Remodeled and New owners and the sitting on the deck with views of the lake was a great way to end the day.

Hey, Where is PAULY? Haven't seen him out there yet this year.

Is that the place that was Lakeville Inn or whatnot?

Yes, it was Lakeville Inn. Much improved.

Did Addison Oaks get any rain yesterday? Thinking of riding tomorrow if the trails are in good condition. Any trail update? I was at Stoney Creek Friday and got caught in a downpour but when I got back home it hadn't rained at all so I figured I would check if Addison got rain or not.

Thanks,

John

Probably ~.25 inch in the last 24 hours. May be some grease, but likely pretty decent.

I wasn't in Addison today, but I did hike a bit of Bald Mountain and it was mixed sloppy/puddles and fine. Might be good to avoid if rain comes, but if not, probably fine.

This morning the trail was alright. It was a bit moist (greasy?). The worst was before the triple trouble area. After the paved section, the trail was essentially perfect. In the last downhill section there was a small tree down. It was small enough to run it over, but big enough to cause concern. Less adept riders may crash, because it's a fast area.

Also, the roads leading to the park are in terrible shape. Lake George turning onto Predmore road had huge potholes. I'm fairly low to the ground and I scraped. Harmon road was pretty rough, but nothing that had me worried about getting stuck.

Any idea on what shape the trail is in? I was hoping to hit it today after work around 5

Likely mostly dry/damp with localized greasy spots. I'd say go for it. Just be aware of your impact, and report back if I turned out too optimistic. :D

Will do! Perfect time to try my new Crossmark on the rear.

Trail was in great shape! A little grease here and there, a puddle or two.

Dry enough to not damage the trail, wet enough to be unpleasant in places. Not bad, but will likely be nicer given another day or so.

Quite good today. Just a little bit of greasy mud here and there.

Trail in very good shape Wednesday evening, some greasy spots, but nothing really soft. Face-slappers just before the 5 mile mark.

Addison is getting smooth and fast.

Addison was perfect today. What a great trail. I saw that someone ( Pauly?) has done some trail maintenance recently.
I did find a bike computer off to side of trail at about 2 1/2 mile mark so if you lost one let me know the make and model and I will gladly return it.
