    Kennedy slop 地 glop 9:00AM-9:30AMish Sunday morning

    Kennedy @ Top-o-The-Hill Road. 9:00am-ish sorta kinda. Conditions are going to suck. Prepare for mudbutt riding conditions (I put a fender on the back of my bike). Monsoon, anyone? Count me in. Nelson34, mboldt, and Ancient Rascal might make it out there, but I will for sure be there. I値l be there on my big orange monsoon-ready fatbike.

    Dang ... I got spoiled out there today with some misty but all around sweet conditions. Maybe the big storm blows through before 10 ish but it may be pouring at your start time. We see in the morning. The trail will take the water ok me thinks.

    Cannot puss out on me twice due to weather. You have a garden hose, and a compressed air source, yes? That痴 all you really need after such a glopfest of a ride.

    I'll be on the other side riding El Sereno with my buddy John. Maybe we'll make it out that way after a couple of up and downs. It's gonna be wet and messy . The way I see it, if I'm gonna clean my bike after the mud mess it's going to be a worth while ride. Definitely much more than 2k worth of climbing. Feel free to join us Brett if all others bail on ya.

    Isn't El Sereno "just like" Kennedy?

    It's going to be heavy rain, so says weatherman...or rather the hot weather stripper chicks. Yahoo and Wunderground says it's dumping from around 9AM till late afternoon.

    The forecast I saw for 9 am is pretty serious amounts of rain, but it should move through pretty quick. It's supposed to be dry by 3 pm, which is when I plan on heading out for some LG fireroad climbing.

    We plan on starting at 9 from the brewery parking lot. Our plan is to get some solid miles in. Either by going up and down El Sereno a few times or exploring, playing it by ear Weather is of no concern.

    What trail would be more protected from the wind, Kennedy or El Sereno? I've only been to Sereno a couple of times during the summer months, never winter.

    Most of our winds will come in from the west and El Sereno, with zero west wind protection and west facing, is crazy during a storm. Expect incredibly rough conditions today (though you can prtend your in the movie A Perect Storm and have a story to tell later). Kennedy fairs pretty well in a storm as it is mostly protected from the West wind gusts asdie from up top where it can get nutty. However, you might still get nailed on the trail swithbacks from swirling winds that creep up the canyons. Best Bet: Kennedy unless you want to have a crazy adventure.
