Trail likely to be very wet…


#4

We haven’t had any rain for days and just a light dusting of snow this morning which is already gone.

We’ll assess when we get there though. If we need to, we’ll move down to Shubie. The plan is still to meet at spider though.

For what it is worth I was there sunday and it was pretty soft


#6

I can’t make it out this evening, but am going to try and get a quick lunchtime ride in now. Will report back with conditions…


#7

A quick trail report FWIW.

TL;DR: Definitely some wet spots, but it’s rideable if you don’t mind getting a bit muddy.

There are a fair amount of damp leaves and wet roots around which were interesting to negotiate.

I’d recommend avoiding the doubletrack if possible as it’s boggy in spots and is especially wet right at the top heading to the tunnel:

The singletrack is mostly fine. Some wet spots on Ribbon, but outside the trees (Western Flow Trail, Repliciator etc) is mostly dry:

Bike is a bit dirty:

Unfortunately I have some things to do at home this evening. One of those is decorating my bike for the parade sunday! I am going to miss this ride.

Yes, I know it’s been a few weeks in a row…I suck.
