    Wouldn't that still create more erosion. If I were riding in those conditions I would too. I wouldn't want to intentionally get soaking wet and filthy. LOL

    First off those conditions are not good to ride any park in ( I was being a bit sarcastic ) but if you do need to ride trails that are soft and wet then slow down and ride thru the center of the trail. When the puddles are avoided by going wide it starts to defeat the whole "single track" thing.
    There is a lot of people that put a lot of hours into the trails and when we see this it does tend to upset some of them.
    I think the dude that made the video did this one very early and has since found out that riding trails that are soft and wet is not good....

    Oh if you were being sarcastic as well then you got me :)

    Pat is a convert to the good side, he drinks our tea now.

    @ReverendNewman has a fly fatty now, he is going to ride the beach when it is too muddy otherwise three guys and a dog will pee on the trail in front of him.

    Hahahahaha. I learned early on, not to ride the trails in bad weather, trail conditions. And thank u to all the trail maintenance folks.

    Stopped in this afternoon. I'd recommend avoiding the blind trail for another few days so the daytime temps give it some time to dry. Much of the park was good minus a few softer patches. Blind was holding much more water than expected, so I made a point to avoid it the rest of the time out.

    Great conditions throughout the park. Didn't encounter any wet spots.

    Man.... the angle of that lens does lots of weird stuff... It makes it look like he's riding 150mm cranks, and it also makes it look like he's going around all the puddles. Strange. Really strange.

    So you're saying he now rides through the puddles and not around every single one (avoiding the stickers of course). Somehow I'm not convinced. I want to see a new video of him riding through the middle of the puddles in the rain..

    Came across this the other day. They seem like a decent group of guys. It's actually nice to see a group of good friends get together and ride like this... Just..... They look at trails as being rideable if they can physically do it, not about the damage caused.

    Most of it is fine...Had they just stayed away from the low areas.... But no. Dragging the rear wheel the whole way down the hills is bad enough.. But in the wet? Ugh. :(

    You two need to get a room for this.

    Forget a room, Utah knows a special trail.. works best if you take your unleashed rotty with you to create a privacy zone and keep those pesky riders away.
