My spy in the woods says it's a no go for 8/2/06 ride. To wet and the trails don't need anymore pressure on them.

Thanks boogenman, I forget you and Mike are right there in Colden / Glenwood. We have another rider who is running there this am and wil report back as to conditions as well, but I'm guessing with the heat and the rains that there won't be a ride tonight.

It downpoured for at least 45 minutes in glenwood at about 2am on Tuesday. The trail at SB will be real wet for a while. I was walking it sunday and there were lots of mud holes.
I might get up there for a walk Thursday morning before I work, I will post my findings if I get there.

The other thing is I usually ride in the afternoon - most of you guys ride in the early AM. You'd be surprised how much of a difference 5 hours can be when it rained the previous day - especially if it's hot and/or windy.

And it was my FIRST ride at Hunters this year... all because of Spraguebrook! Which was definately off limits after the rain that hit there.

Anyway - lets hope for good weather for the Fest!

Yeah, I stand corrected. Apparently the Sat. rain wasn't as bad as I thought, and the drenching from Thursday and the more on Friday had mostly dried up.

The heat sucks, but it actually does help dry things up more quickly, although maybe not in this humidity.

Jon - not sure if you saw my Element at Hunter's Sunday - but I went there with a freind after 2pm with the sole goal of avoiding all the traditionally wet areas and ready to bail if conditions were bad.

I have to say - Hunter's wasn't in that bad of shape. I walked the traditional boggy areas - but the majority of the orange (FLT) and upper blue trails were in very good shape (except for that one HUGE mud bog) that we walked around. "Skyridge" was totally fine - as it always is.

As you know - you can get 10 miles in there if you know the spots to avoid.

Hey - if you want me to do the Map cover... I can...
