Yeah, during the race we ride around the outside of the soccer field and up some hills that you probably wouldn't do if you're just riding a lap.

I was just working on some lawn care at the pump track, but a couple of people stopped by and reported a tree down at 7.5 miles... I'm guessing somewhere in Maru's.

Only saw two riders, and neither were covered in mud or said anything about bad mud when I asked.

Rode early afternoon. Trail was great. A very few muddy spots hardly worth mentioning.
Only saw two other riders on the trail.

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.

With the downpours we had yesterday in the area I would think it's pretty wet and muddy. I went for a ride down 275 to Hines and then back up through Northville to home. Nice change up from the trails but not as much fun. Did see some mounted Wayne County Sheriffs at Cass Benton. I was able to ride on the road as they were trotting on the other side of the armco next to the bike path. Very different than just watching them ride by.
