Rode Tree Farm last night -- it was perfect. Nice and sunny today, so I'm sure it's the same. :)

Rode last night. Trail is in great shape other than one tree down about a mile or so (maybe more) from the 12.5-mile entrance. It's about a 7" thick tree, and unless you're REALLY good at getting big air, it's a "walk the bike over" event right now.

I agree. I've pinpointed the location of the tree on the FB Trail conditions tread, only because I'm too ignorant to post a picture of a map here.

In addition:

I chased away a bonehead who was riding his motorcycle (not a dirt bike, a road one) around on the gravel learners' trail at the trailhead. Didn't get plate numbers but did give him the Mom-Look. (I never had any idea how useful that would turn out to be even after I launched my kids into the world).

I kicked the loose gravel back into place but don't know how that trail was built. If there is some vulnerable infrastructure under the gravel, it may need to be checked.

Awesome. I hope it was a comprehensive Mom Look, complete with hands-on-the-hips.

Thanks for doing that. We have a kid's bike rodeo thing schedule there for May 23rd - we'll do some repairs and spot updates in early May to get it ready.

Oh, and I think that tree at 8 1/2 mile is cleared now (by someone else - thanks!)

Novi was dry as can be yesterday. Almost too dry, but we'll take it over the swampland it can be sometimes I guess. Rain today should actually improve it a bit.

Just got back from a walk. Trail should be good to go(I didn't walk the whole trail). Some surface mud and small puddles but not enough to stop a ride. Should be even better tomorrow.

How much rain did Novi get last night? I was hoping to ride today (Tuesday) after work, but not if storms mucked it up out there. Thanks.

Just back from a scouting trip. There's a lot of standing water and slimey areas. If it was a warm, sunny day then maybe it would be okay tonight, but I doubt it will be. Needs another day.

Nope. Standing water and slick spots. Best to wait.
