Probably depends on weather this week? I think people were riding up there no problems before this past weekend. But I don't imagine it'll have any lasting effects. Hopefully a few locals will chime in.
Was in Big Bear this past weekend. On Saturday there was a measurable amount of snow in Running Springs/Arrowbear but once past Snow Valley it dropped off and Big Bear was dry. Suspect very little moisture in Big Bear as water crossings were low.
Not sure of the 6/1 course. If similar to past Fall Classics, the dirt is good. Town Trail hasn't been graded so it's packed hard w a couple very minor water/mud crossings. 2N08 is fine. Couple loose areas but all very manageable. 1E01, fun fun as usual. Mill Creek, nothing unexpected. Didn't ride Plantation so unsure whether there is an accumulation of water in the pond area. 2N10 from Grandview to Upper Fall Line is fairly hard packed with a few loose/shallow sand areas. Again, nothing unexpected. Good news? No Flies! Bad News? Big Bear Mtn Brew is out of their Dopplebock (but still has IPA on tap).
Does anybody know the stats for the beginner race? I'm trying to decide if I'm coming down for the race, but won't have anytime to preride if I do. I'd love to know the distance and total elevation if anybody has it. Thanks!!
Experts and pros are doing 24 miles and 3300 ft of climbing. I think the beginners are doing the same distance as sport. They don't say how far the other classes are going. And the map isn't real clear for the route.
