Short notice ride. Meeting at the Newman's Lane parking lot at 5:30 today. I'll be on my SS. Moderate pace. Others welcome to join.
was the guys name donald? if so that surely was him. Hows the place been treating you on the ss?
Fun ride today. I haven't seen CR this dry since last August. Dare I say the trails are fast. Newman's Lane lot was packed.
I saw a guy on a Seven custom Ti 29er with a lefty fork today. I can't imagine how much coin he dropped on that. Maybe this was the same guy you saw a couple of weeks ago Fred.
Safe to assume you skip the yellow loop?
Yellow trail is fine, the ground is firm. There are some ruts in places. At one point a tree conveniently failed lengthwise along a wet area so all you have to do is ride on it.
The entire park is in great shape right now. There has been some work done and overall the trails are getting much more enjoyable to ride. Only tough spot now is the steep climb off of Chimney Rock rd. The rain seems to have washed away all the earth and it's only loose rocks now.
Hmmm the yellow loop... Kind of embarrassed to admit that I don't pay any attention to the trail markers at CR so I'm not sure where you are referring to.
We rode all the stuff across Newman's Lane, and all the stuff on the parking lot side of Newman's as well. Ran out of daylight so we didn't get to cross the reservoir.
