    Is there an event, or do you just suspect everyone will go to ride there?

    Trial runs are held out there every so often, and its a common spot to run into 40+ high school kids. He wouldnt have listed specific time range if there wasnt an event being held I can assure you that much...

    High school training/practice. Lots of kids/coaches, spread out in small groups at different paces, but it'll be busy all morning.

    Is Saturday the typical day for that kind of stuff? Would make sense. We always ride on Sunday (not just Salmon Falls; it's just the day my friends and I can make work). See ya in church.

    Anyone done Pioneer Trail lately? I know it gets above 5k ft elevation so it might be a no go but I've been wanting to go...

    Did It Saturday. Lots of snow on the upper section almost down to Harmony. Scott's Flat was mucky but ridable and fun. Miner's was wet but fun.

    Damn, I was hoping to go out 15-20 miles from the 5 mile house and back for a 30-40 mile ride. Guess that's not happening...

    We got 24.7 starting on Pioneer then crossing at Harmony to Scott's Flat. Them down to the road and riding back up to Harmony. Hit Miner's then took the canal trail back to TONC. Not nearly the number of miles you want but it was pretty fun once we got out of the snow. I'd wager the snow melted today.

    Advisory for Saturday, February 27th: There's a sold out, 31 mile trail running race starting at Cronan Ranch and ending at Folsom Point. They start at 8am at Magnolia... should be done with SFART by Noon (as per their cut-off time). Sweetwater could be pretty busy from 10:30 - Noon+ as well. Consider hitting Salmon Falls/Darrington instead, if you have to hit the trails in the morning. No fun anyone if you're huffing up SFART and a hundred+ runners are coming towards you for a half hour.

    Salmon Falls 50k

    Thanks for the heads up, add TBF activities at Granite Bay all weekend as well. Anybody know the conditions of Sly Park/Fleming Meadows?

    Was that referring to me? Haven't ridden in Auburn in two or three years, mainly time limitations, being on 50 side of Sac, Auburn is 75-90 minutes of driving, Sly is just under an hour. When I only get a 6 hours hall pass, those extra 30 minutes each way, weigh heavily. Although all this Auburn talk did have me thinking about it.

    Nope. Check Sean Allen's Auburn Rant thread.

    Commuted via ARBT this morning. Any pioneering efforts would be thwarted by downed trees. I did not travel anywhere shady but expect anywhere with a lot of trees to have a few of them knocked over.

    Six gates open at Nimbus.

    It was like that when I got here. You can't prove anything.

    As it dries out, things are going to keep falling over. Stay safe out there.

    Dumping rain around noon today so I called off my afternoon ride then it just thundered with no rain for the rest of the day, #$%*#@#$#!!! I suspect the trails will be in proper shape tomorrow for those who are lucky enough to enjoy the brown pow!

    You may want to postpone your question for a few days. Forecast is calling for a bit of rain starting tomorrow and through the weekend.

    Heads up: FHDL area will be pretty busy at 9am tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 5th), starting at Drivers Flat (the top parking area). HS mt. biking teams will be riding till about 11:30-12. The large group of kids and coaches/ride leaders (50+) breaks into about 6 smaller groups and spreads out quickly. I will encourage all groups to head out counter clockwise.... so if you're riding there in the morning, going clockwise might be less than ideal until after about 10am. Thank you for putting up with kids riding bikes :-)

    Damn kids!!!!


    Are they riding mostly FHDL and not into Connector/Culvert? Just checking in case we hit those in the AM. I don't want to be in their way.

    The faster kids will ride FDHL/Connector/Culvert/Confluence/Clementine/Connector/FHDL... I'd say maybe 15 kids/adults
    The medium kids will probably do an out and back on Connector before heading back on FHDL ... maybe 20 kids/adults
    The newer kids will stick to FHDL ... maybe 15 kids/adults

    Everyone will be really spread out. Just ride with your head up... ear buds out... and ding your bell before going around turns, like usual on a weekend on the FHDL :-)

    Anyone know if the bridge is still above water to get from Sweetwater out to Salmon Falls ? I know that the rain had the river up quite a bit a week ago before the last series of storms.

    First ride in a long time, and GB was really nice Sunday am. Lots of friendly folks too. I lost the rebound on my rear shock earlier in the summer and finally got it fixed. It's amazing what a properly functioning rear shock feels like (thanks Fox!).

    Rode Hidden Falls yesterday. Perfect conditions. No dust.

    Auburn is probably similar.

    Salmon Falls was also perfect.
