No selective reading, that's what you said bro. Good try though.

Yeah, I read something about you clearing a few branches on your fort custer post, but I didn't see anything about clearing the trails for 2 and half hours. Where did you write that in a different forum? I guess I should of read your mind or maybe I was too immersed in your rude comments about me feeling better about my life.

Anybody know how Luton is now ? I am guessing probably not so good, with the warmer temps and rain. Looking to ride Friday morning and would like to do trail, but may have to stick to the road.

Thanks

Conditions were great today. About an inch of packed snow, some slick spots and bare dirt spots. Ride early before the afternoon thaw each day.

Do you think it will be too muddy/soft this Friday or Saturday A.M.? Low temps are predicted to be above freezing.

I would go as early as possible but don't push 35 degrees, especially if the sun is out

Parked at Luton tonight to do road ride to Cannon trails. It looks like a muddy mess and I would not ride there unless temps are below freezing.

The weather will be too warm to ride Luton over the next 7 days. Please stay off the trail during the mild weather. On a positive note, Yankee drains great and should be fine over this span of time.

Drove by today and could see standing water and pizza cutter ruts on the part along the road, which is exposed to the sun / wind. If that part isn't even drying out, I would hate to see the rest of the trail.

Did you notice how wide the trail is getting as people look for dry grass to ride on? :evil: *beep*
