Removed the fallen tree this morning, trail is all clear and in great shape.
Added a few more rocks, to the rock garden. :twisted:

Rode a couple laps last night and the trail was a little wet in all the usual places. Should be much better by Saturday afternoon.

It was cool to see a dad and his two young boys out on the trail. :D

Mud's almost gone and the sandy spots by the golf course are starting to pop up. Had the whole trail to myself this morning. Just me, two wheels, one gear and 30lbs of rigid Taiwanese steel........life is good.

Trail was is pretty darn good shape. I snuck in two loops before dinner and just a hand full of gummy sections but considering the rain we had I could not believe it.

Rode the trail at 7am this morning. Actually in pretty good shape. I would recommend giving it another day to dry out. It should be perfect on Monday.

Bill,

Thanks for putting on the Milford Challenge today. Rode a total of 61 miles today and FINALLY did the Kensington to Proud Lake connector. I liked the addition to Milford Trail but it took me by surprise as you turn hard right when you expect to go straight. I think we'll see some tire tracks heading straight off in that area very soon! :)
