I rode Stephens for the first time today. Conditions were great.

I am going to have to get back for a tour at some point. I hit some really fun trails but also ended up hitting some trails in the "wrong" direction.

Just got home, trestle was a bit softer with a little mud slinging at speed but I'm just being picky. Trails overall in great shape and I suffered my first spill of the season getting back at the lot from tilcon, stupid me, claimed a brake lever a knee and ear.

Does the TM affect the group ride? Or is it TM then ride?
It does not affect the group ride. Actually, it was moved back to the original date; Saturday June 9th. Sorry....just a messenger with this TM.

Here are the updated details as of last night:


We look good to go for Saturday.....

*****Meet a little farther up Kinney Rd past the iron gate. *******

I will cross post this under general discussion

I have heard but not seen that the bonefrog nj that is happening this weekend June 16th has set up obstacles on the trails. These have been setup on the Kinney Lake trail and Lil Maze. As per one of my running friends they have setup these obstacles with wires and one of the riders in his group ride got clothes lines. Be aware that these have been setup
 
Can confirm... rode here last night. They closed trails all around Kinney Rd, including a small section east of the train tracks. The trails around the lake, and the short connector trail that leads to the Pink trails are closed, and full of hazardous obstacles. Might want to avoid this place until late next week when cleanup is done.
