    Ft Ord (from Creekside) was perfect except a few sandy spots. Took Goat, Fern, Red Rock and Ewok.

    Tomorrow would probably be a good day but if it stays dry next week it'll be too sandy for my tastes.

    Wilder was pretty muddy in a lot of places, and some of the trails had insanely slick/uncovered rock, with some puddles forming in lower valleys. For the most part (outside that one slip on the rock. GAH), Wilder was in pretty good shape.

    did the bike come back clean? I have been on the SS for a few weeks and was thinking of riding the 1x10 today.

    Demo is in pretty good shape, braille is mostly hero dirt with some oil slicks in between, bike was pretty clean. I took the long way up highland, b/c i heard sulfur springs was pretty soft. big group did the sawpit loop and their bikes looked pretty clean too.

    JMP is still too soft to ride on many of the better trails. Please keep out of there until it dries out for a while.
    Eat, ride, eat, rest, repeat.

    A bit soft in spots, other parts were good (Stiles).

    Rocky Ridge sucked!!! It is very muddy after the tree, nothing but tire marks going through the mud. The part before the short steep sprint after the bridge needs trail work to repair. It has a pretty large rut from water runoff going down along the trail, cutting a nice ravine.

    Yep, same issues for me! I took it casual, I didn't want a stick through the spokes! However, it sure is nice out there, and still a great ride, not a DH ripper, but very pleasant. I ended up not going today (wife time constraints) and went to STCP instead.

    STCP was great. Newton said RR was muddy at the bottom.

    Boundary climb was really slippery and I lost traction due to surface mud slick. Joice Climb (the hard one) was like trying to ride through bread dough. Everything else was awesome.

    Those damn trails were PACKED. Can't wait to ride it tomorrow when nobody is there.

    pictures of STCP. I didn't stop at lower RR to take pictures but everything after the tree is the same.

    1st, coyote peak.
    2nd and 3rd is at the intersection of RR and Fortini.

    Where is that trail?

    Soquel had an area with downed trees that we had to hike around on a steep uphill. Guys with clip in shoes were sliding all over the place. Guys with platform pedals and sticky soles did a lot better.

    Other than that section, the top part close to the road has some slippery sections especially over wet logs that need good technique to ride over (easy to just walk over).

    Once you are passed that, perfect grip. Zen, Nirvana, Bliss, Flow, whatever you want to call it.

    Yeah, actually, my bike was surprisingly clean for Ord (I ride a 2x10). Perfect conditions.

    Where do you ride the Fort in the summer? Figured it would be too sandy, except for certain trails.

    Rode up Stevens Canyon and Indian Creek Trails this afternoon. The big water crossing was deep enough to get my disc brakes wet, so they squealed for a bit afterwards. A few soft spots here and there but not too bad. There was one washout on the single track and one along the fire road on the way up. A bit of work with a shovel or mattock would fill those in. Did notice a lot of branches down in the leaf little and if you get off the main track those jump up and try to get into the spokes and chain. Indian Creek was in excellent condition, but was my first time up so nothing to compare it to.

    Only problem I ran into was it was COLD in the canyon, down around 47F, it was ~65F down on the valley floor. No wind until you crest the ridge at Black Mtn. then a heavy wind kicked up. I was running short of day light so came back down the pavement on Montebello.

    Lots of small slides on the sides of the various paved roads, so take care if riding those at speed around a blind corner.

    Skeggs

    Rode Skeggs on Sunday. Very good conditions overall. Some wet spots where the drainage is along the trail. A large number of trees down on Blue Blossom, and Resolution was closed due to a slide according to the sign.

    for a quick fix the fort's always great. the sand just increases the difficulty. sometimes the summertime fog firms up the trails a bit. for the most part i'd say a lot of the well ridden trails in the sc/monterey county area get pretty blown out by mid summer w/brake bumps anyways. that's when it's time to go set up shop in oregon.
