Really, I didn't even know there was a line of thunderstorms south. I'll see if I can find some rain fall amounts for that area. But as I said before Ben is right there in west falls and he would know best.

Damn, the bike is on the roof of the truck.

I am pretty sure that Sprague Brook got hit by yesterdays line of thunderstorms. Which means that the trails are most likely quite wet and muddy. If anyone has any other information speak up, otherwise I certainly won't be rideing tonight.

We do seem to get a decent shot of rain every week that seems to be just a recent memory but we'll have to go with what Ben and onyouright are saying for now as to the real conditions.

Jon, any luck on getting a Sprague Brook trail conditions section up so riders can post condidtions?

Rode SB for the first time last night. From all I heard about the trail, I'd have to say the trail is in need of some serious dry weather to dry out. The bikes and riders got pretty muddy. Those little rock sections that bridge some of the creek crossings are now dangerously slippery. Just some info that I thought I would pass along. Looking foward to riding it when it's dry.

I was just out working on the signs. The trails are in similar condition to last week. If it does not rain before Wednesday night I think things will be ridable. But if we get any amount of rain before then I would stongly advise against riding.

I was on one of the drier sections, not the sections that are frequently wet. My report is really an optimistic educated quess as to the condition of the wet sections, so really Rain = NO riding in my opinion.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
