    A special weather statement.

    Ride mtb Mon-Tues then dust off the roadie.

    If this was the first storm of the month, it would be darn good for the trails. But at this point when the trails are already soaked and perfect, this will put us over the top for the next 10 days.

    ------
    Special Weather Statement
    Statement as of 8:11 AM PST on November 25, 2012

    ... A strong Pacific storm will impact the region by Wednesday and
    last through next weekend...

    A large area of low pressure will push across the North Pacific
    by the early to middle part of this coming work week. This will
    bring a large change to the weather pattern for the area.
    Conditions will remain partly sunny... dry..and mild to start the
    week with high pressure lingering over the area.

    Rainfall will move into the area by early Wednesday morning and
    rain chances will remain high into early next weekend. While it
    remains too early to predict total rainfall amounts... the overall
    weather pattern will be favorable for widespread and significant
    rain across the region.

    In addition to the rainfall..gusty south winds will accompany the
    low pressure by Wednesday. This will produce hazardous boating
    conditions on the area waters with possible gales. Strong and
    potentially damaging winds will occur over high terrain areas as
    well.

    With several days until the storm system impacts the
    area... details will change on exact timing and intensity of the
    upcoming changes to the weather. However... residents need to be
    aware of the upcoming changes and the increased chances of high
    impacts from significant rainfall and gusty winds.

    Please continue to monitor the latest statements regarding the
    upcoming storm system and its impacts on the San Francisco Bay
    area. Later forecasts will refine the details of
    timing... intensity... and location of the greatest hazards.

    Pogonip trail work this Sunday

    We are doing trail work at the Pogonip this Sunday:

    Next Pogonip workday Sunday December 2nd, 9am 1pm. Lunch sponsor Caletti Cycles, coffee sponsor Verve Coffee Roasters | Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC)

    These conditions should be great for digging. Still plenty of stuff to do - particularly the switchback section near the fern trail. Berms and rollers and all that.

    Free coffee, pastries, pizza and refreshing beverages for trail workers. Trail day sponsored by our good friends at Verve Coffee and Caletti Cycles.

    Thanks for the report katana.

    The Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay has several guys locally who are deeply invested in this latest work. We put in a lot of time with VoCal prior to the trailwork to make sure that the path made sense and I think it paid off nicely. The execution of the work by about 80 volunteers was major but contained certain abberations to our philosophy, not uncommon with large volunteer groups with a variety of trail goals.

    The simple fact of 2 inches of rain (finally!) after the work in June did much to bed this in. There will be a few um...adjustments... made to the early summer work to bring it into line with our vision. Stay tuned.

    Cindy has seen so much "love" that she looks a bit rode-hard-put-up-wet for sure.

    Is it too early to start on the Tractor re-route?

    This is starting to look more like an absolute ride killer for a few weeks.

    A STRONGER SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO THE NORTHERN PORTION OF
    THE BAY AREA BY THURSDAY...BRINGING MORE INTENSE AND PROTRACTED
    RAINFALL. MODEL FORECASTS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT UPWARDS OF
    10 TO 15 INCHES MAY FALL IN HIGHER ELEVATION AREAS OF THE NORTH BAY
    THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WHILE VALLEY BOTTOMS MAY RECEIVE AROUND 5 TO 6
    INCHES.

    Time to get out the tools and rip my bike apart for the winter.

    Awai and I came down Eldridge in similar conditions last year. Kind of sketchy across the wet rocks, but whole lots of fun for sure. Certainly doesn't compare to the gorgeous video, but the sense of riding down a stream was certainly there. Beautiful conditions for a ride.
