I have no clue... it's crazy. In 12 months I'm out 4 or 5 shovels.

At least the kids are off their broken bottle kick from the spring... that was probably a bit more annoying if you ask me.

We rode the trail mid afternoon and it was in perfect shape. No complaints at all except the biting flies toward end of trail. The pump track is lots of fun and thanks to those that have worked hard on it.
That whole section after the crater is some of the best flowing singletrack in metro area. Love it.
It was so hot today and we chose Novi trail because no hills and lots of shade made it the best choice.

Tried to ride last night and it was pretty wet in the beginning sections. Some decent puddles with standing water. If we don't get rain today it may be ridable after this heat though!

The Tree Fort crew descended upon Lakeshore tonight and the trail is in great shape. There were a some spots with mud and puddles. The mosquitos were out in force when we stopped to fix a chain but seemed to disappear when you get moving again. We had a blast!

Trail was primo last night! The usual puddles spots were devoid of water, but are now softened ground. The worst part being at 2.3 miles in.

We had trail days this weekend - still very wet in spots, especially Expert Loop and 754. Trail is otherwise in great shape.

Yesterday was great. Tons of grip. A few soft spots that were easily avoidable.

There was a crew out doing some trail maintenance and kudos to those guys. Everything was great. They saw me coming and were out of the way.

The course was in fantastic shape this morning. There are still a few soft spots which are easily avoidable. As mentioned previously there was tons of grip which made for a quick loop.

trail was awesome tonight. no wet spots, only a few spots that I'd call play-doh-ey. best conditions I've seen since May. really glad to see our trail work paying off, and special thanks to HoDaddy among others for adding stone/soil to the really troublesome spots.

Thanks - lots of volunteers have been busy!

The course will be marked Friday night, but you can grab the map off the relay thread in the race forum and preride it any time.

Lots of standing water, soft conditions. The fresh trail repairs will be particularly sensitive. Best to give it some time. There will be a crew out tonight continuing with repairs.
