How necessary are lights? I think I’m free to go, and it would be my first group ride of the season, but I don’t have any lights :frowning:.

I will bring a spare light. We haven’t needed them until about 8:30, at which point we should be on our way out.

I’ll be able to make it out.

Still a pile of jerseys that haven’t been picked up yet. I’ll have them with me if anyone wants to meet at the BLT parking lot at 7, even if you can’t stay for the ride.

Wondering what trails in Whopper, and how wet please (water, mud)? Sporting new wheels, and would like to break them in gently. If you think fairly dry, will join, if not, next time. Thx!

Most of the trail in there drain fast other then a short part near the start that might be a bit soft. Whopper is mostly a lot of exposed granite and doesn’t hold much water.

Except for the powerline and fire road, which have several large puddles. Mostly avoidable, but count on them being there year round.

Thx. I realize the power line is usually pretty wet, and some parts of Suzy Lake. Less familiar with Scotch on the Rocks & some “newer” trails on that side.

Thank you.

DaMinion and Scotch are relatively dry right now, but still a few soggy/muddy spots that we’ve been working on filling with rocks.
