Golden Hill Conditions
You know that the key to the recovery and return of that bike was that the dealer sticker was on the bike and that the dealer has a credible database of customer info. Amysue was smart in not taking off the dealer sticker.
If anyone has a bike that they need to register, usually the local police department can issue a registration, free of charge. That would help in recovery.

WNYMBRO is NOT dead, it just smells funny.
Great Photo! That section is beutiful. And good to see Ol Red (your bike) back on the trail.
Golden is some of the twistiest, fastest trails around...a good time indeed. I always seem to bash my shoulders in there because of all the narrow sections.
Wish it wasn't so far away. But if it rains anymore this week, that may be the wednesday night ride a few of us do. This place gets minimal use, and drains well.

Was out at Golden Hill Friday, Sept 1. Trails were in good shape. Maybe 1 or 2 mucky sections. Rode the red and blue loop. This was my first time riding there.
We came across a section labeled "Whammy" with 2 black diamonds. I am assuming there is crazy stuff that way so I avoided it. I am still trying to master my skills on the trails enough to build my riding foundation where i am comfortable enough with my abilities.
I loved the look of the trail upon entering the red loop on the left of the road; with all of the bare trees with greenery on the tree tops. it looked so cool!! Cant wait to get back out there!
Find what you love, and love what you find!
I rode the red loop today. It is dry, buy not dusty like some of McCarty Hill. The south side of the road was in fantastic shape and tons of fun. Be careful on the north side of the road on the easternmost section- just past the 2nd trailhead. That section of the trail (just a short part - 500 feet) has been overgrown by thorny plants. My arms and legs are full of little cuts. On the otherhand, the fruit yielded by those thorny plants was delicious!
Does anyone ride here anymore? Actually I rode at Golden Hill today for the first time this year. The red loop is in good shape for the most part a couple of sticky areas but nothing like last year. As for the blue loop, lets just say bring your GPS. There are a lot of trees down on the the lower section and I actually got lost for a while on the climb back up because the markers suddenly disappeared. Not only was the blue loop a bit sketchy due to a lack of markers but there was some erosion along this section as well. If you are planning to ride there soon I would suggest sticking to the red loop.
I also was on the Golden Hill trails yesterday, July 3rd and was surprised by the mud holes. I have family that live at the bottom of the hill and found out that on Thursday of this past week they got about 2" of rain, which may explain the mud holes.
Rode the red loop at Golden Hill on Sunday the 20th and was much wetter than expected, mostly on the downhill side of the road in the hardwood stands or the grassy connectors to the road.
I totally forgot that it was a work day there until we were having lunch at Coolings. What did you work on?
