    Wish Trail Head had a demo day during these challenging conditions

    With rain expected tomorrow and Saturday-leaves really few choices to ride this weekend. If I get out Saturday may be road or KENNEDY. Sunday will probably be the same options-except Saturday is supposed to be raining in the A.M..

    Supposed to be raining throughout the weekend. Was planning to go to STCP again this weekend. And my replacement part is supposed to be arriving today. Bike will be RTG but won't be able to ride!
    It's pronounced "so pro and cool."
    It was an impulse decision.

    Come out to Kennedy Sunday morning with The Ancient Rascalô and me. Around 9:00-9:30ish in the AM, meetup at Kennedy@Top-O-The-Hill. It might not be raining.

    STCP will definitely be closed because of this rain - and rightfully so. I ask all to respect the trail closures and DO NOT ride these trails after a down pour. The rangers do a great job at assessing the conditions of the trails, and horses and bikes will absolutely destroy them. STCP is mostly clay, and putting a tire rut stays that way for a while once it dries. I want to repair some of the areas that need it - but I don't know if I can just go out there without permission. Stile Ranch is going to be awful.

    I may take the 29'er out to Nisene tomorrow. Or hell may freeze over and I may do the "K" word - but Nisene just sounds so much better.

    Weather gal say's next significant rain not until late Sunday. 10 minutes later she say's next significant rain Saturday night. I think it would be silly to try to ride this weekend. C U guy's on ur "Tractors" this weekend ! PS Nelson your "Turkey day" social pace enabled me to be primed for a killer run on Friday. LP and I will dish out the appropriate serving of well deserved misery for your riding pleasure on Sunday!

    Kennedy is usually rideable-I've been out there when its pouring-remember only one other rider out there and he came up to me and said we were both crazy! It was coming down good-I had just set up my Cannondale as a single speed-I was crazy

    No, but a 34x22 could be considered a hard gear.

    'tis what I heard the weather people say around lunchtime today, a number of stations. I'll wait till Sat afternoon to get a better "prediction". Raining buckets, like this morning, would be a real sucky ride. It seems the rain will be lighter on Sat, so they say.

    Fortunately, I use a 24x30. It's still hard to stay in Zone 2 though.

    On 26' wheels .... 34x22 = 1.54 to 1 and my favorite for Kennedy 32x21 = 1.52 to 1

    I rode today. It was pouring. And boring.

    I think I'm going to Nisene tomorrow - but Sunday is definitely going to be pouring.

    I only have sunday to ride. I'm going to do a stupid ride on the cross bike... I think up dirt alpine, skyline, down black mtn road. or maybe Stevens canyon. Don't know yet. I think it'll depend on how cold and wet I get.

    It's gonna be awesome!
