My friends and I are thinking of riding River Bends tomorrow. Any current reports on trail conditions?

Yellow is just fine, but there's a couple soft spots with crappy pizza cutters, but you can roll them easily. Seasonal loops down in the floodplane are wet, as is the section of yellow at the far north end. Skip that bit.

Yellow is fine until you cross the bike path for the last time. Then the trail becomes unrideable. Also, I caught kids riding the trail on their dirt bikes. be on the lookout!

Went on Tuesday and got off the trail half way where it loops back around, did not even check out the blue(seasonal), very muddy in spots and after this rain I'm sure it's not any better.

Join CRAMBA-IMBA for a trail day at River Bends on Sunday, June 23, 2013 at 9am. Meet at the trailhead, and we'll be working on a rock garden, rolling bridge, and some general trail maintenance stuff. Bring the usual: water, long sleeve clothing, closed-toe shoes, gloves, hats.

See you there!

River Bends is drying out and good to ride. Muddy spots are firming up and need to be packed back down

Remember our trail day sunday @ 9

Here is a preview of one of the projects........

Just a reminder about the trail day tomorrow, June 23rd! Meet at the trailhead at 9am and we'll be heading out to build a rock garden, this nifty rolling bridge, and do some general trail trimming.

See you there!

Looks really good Jeremy!

Is that the same peak-to-peak distance to depth ratio I designed (10:1 or greater)? Because they look kind of tight in person.

Yes the 2nd and 3rd rollers(from right to left) are the 10:1 the first roller was extra materials and a little less ratio.
