So, I didn't hear positive responses from anybody here or at work. Show up at the parking lot about 5:10, lot is empty.
Ride my usual lap and a half, get a call from Rich and meet him at the beginning of the East, we ride that and take CV over to the West and cruise thru the Wetlands. Coming back into the lot we run into Mike (DeJ) and ride Buckshaver
and Dragon's Tail with him. Stop at my truck and pop open an ice cold Oberon, sitting on my tailgate, BSing with Rich.
Travis (troth) comes riding up (haven't seen Mike or Travis all summer) and it was great to see them both as we caught up on our summer lives. I didn't realize that Travis and Rich had never met. Glad I came out, got in a great many loops, saw old friends. Fed some mosquitoes.
The trail is in AWESOME shape right now, dry, hardpacked, fast and free of all dead downfall or overgrowth.
Go out and ride it and you will be smiling, just don't stop for more than 30 seconds unless you like donating blood.
