Well we are getting some rain lately, and as much as we need it to ensure healthy well levels, and access to the woods.
It also means soft trails. Some trails dry quickly and others need a little more time. Please be conscious of sensitive trails. There are plenty of areas to ride without undoing all the hard work that the local trail elves have done for all of us.
Thanks Mike. Save the trails!
Save the trails, save the trails but… shoot the seals
Where’s good to ride around HRM these days? I usually hit up fight trail-sticking to Lou’s basement/the attic if it’s pretty wet.
@Drgonzo whopper, fight and evil birch are all good when everything else is wet. With the exception of the newer stuff in whopper (daminion and scotch), those are more sensitive.
And of course shubie, hemlock ravine and mcdonald sports park are always rideable.
What about trail conditions in the Valley for the Saturday/Sunday? Any place that would be an absolute no go?
Perhaps we’re into a wait-and-see scenario…?
Bird Sanctuary is great! It is sand so it is safe to ride unless it’s a monsoon. Otherwise, parts of the gorge drys out nicely, Woodville usually takes a little while, res park will have some wet spots for a while post rain.
so perhaps a visual aid will help. If it looks like this then don’t ride it
@skullhorn that looks like Irishman’s from today. If so there was a canada games selection race there yesterday. Loads of traffic through the wet stuff.
Yup Canada Games. Racers ride no matter what.
