I rode yesterday and it was wet and wild. Did a couple laps on WC and Flow, wet roots! Going back up today and tomorrow.

I grew up on the coast so riding in the rain is almost nostalgic for me.

This weather is bumming me out! Anyone ride at all yesterday? Wanna get up bad, but the weather seems all over the place.

just ride man. don't listen to the haters. they are just there to hate.

Puddles=fun
biking = fun
biking + puddle = fun

The math adds up....

My list of rainy trails


Big ed - fun when wet
jimmy thing - fun in the rain
fraidy cat - less fun but still fun in the rain
Ellison - not fun in the dry and just as good in the rain
Sovereign - who knows. most likely fun in the rain. less bugs.
Noble - sucks severely when wet unless your just watching. then fun in the wet.
Silver star - good in the rain with fireball.

Just like other things in life they are usually more fun when wet.

Some friends rode there this Am. Said it was fine. A few puddles but fine. I went up just now to see maybe about the xc trails but it was coming down heavily

Thanks for the tips, dudes. My local clay based trails are basically off-limits for at least 24h after a good rain unless its windy and hot, so this kinda weather feels like a total downer. Good to know things are better than I expect. Worst case Ill hit up the wall & grassy shit over around Kal lake to sweat off the beer.

Spring is different because the ground can be saturated. Right now it’s just a little wet

Bro Science is highly controversial.

Trails weren't bad at all after yesterday night's monsoon. Should be the same wet goodness tomorrow. Its just alittle water and mud. Still better than dust and smoke
