    Oh yeah, you should demo a new Surly Pugsley with those huge 4" tires! The Mt. Wilson webcam still showed snow on the ground this morning and much of SART is higher than that. On the otherhand, being SoCal, we should be getting a heat wave within the next two weeks so you should be good to go.

    Pray for warm weather!

    Thanks for the info. It's kinda hard to tell how much snow is on the ground from the web cam. Hopefully the Santa Ana winds will kick up to warm things up a little. March has always been a hit or miss for SART, at least for the upper sections. A buddy and I have been doing an annual 32 mile SART point to point ride from the top all the way to the bottom for the last several years. We meet up at his cabin in Forest Falls which makes a great base to stage the point to point ride. Last year I brought over a group from Phoenix in March and the trail was very dry. Pics from Last years SART Epic If SART is snowed in, there is always Palm Springs and the Art Smith Trail and hour away to keep us intertained

    BTW, why are you selling your Turner XCE? I have 6 year old XCE and still loving it!

    I'd be MUCH more concerned about fallen trees on the trail from the logging they've been doing. Last I was there you couldn't ride more than 100 feet without dismounting and climbing over fallen trees.

    This was 1-2 months ago.

    It's been replaced by a Flux.
