    Sloppy and gooey. I'd give it a couple of days. If you do go, don't be a puss and ride around the soft spots making the trail wider than it needs to be. Get dirty. You know you like it like that.

    Thanks for the update. I hate mud. Have you actually been up there? Did you get any of that storm tonight?

    Ridgeline should be good to go tomorrow. Took a walk this afternoon and the NE side is pretty decent.

    I haven't heard anything to the contrary. It should be nice and dry by then.

    Ridgeline was perfect today, best i have ever seen it, really fast and able to hook up good. Should be some people blazing tomorrow for race day. Good luck to anyone racing and have fun, wish i could be there but just started my own moving business and had job scheduled.

    Not sure what that trail is normally like, as I'd never ridden it before. But, I did the half at the Ridgeline Rampage and would say that it was about one day too dry from the last snowfall. The better part of the course was like riding on ball bearings due to the kitty litter over hardpack conditions. 'Hooking up good' is not a phrase that would come to mind.

    I did the Rampage as well and had fun on the course. It was dry, but super fun driving hard into the corners and testing the grip of the tires. Only a couple of the corners were too loose to really go hard into, and after the first lap I knew where those were. In all the Ridgeline trails were a fun ride, but now that I have done 3laps of the area, I doubt I will be back any time soon. Much too tame and suburban.

    Yeap. We built it to take our beach cruisers and trailers with the kids on. They are going to put bottled water vending machines at the trail heads this summer also. A coffee shop is going in at Bison Park in the fall I think.

    What about a Strava upload station? J/K. Ridgeline is a great trail, and I'm pretty sure a lot of folks would love to have that right in their backyards! Sure, it's in suburbia, but I will love to be able to come home from work...and roll right to the trail!

    Better yet, RF ID stations all around the place. Put the chip on your bike and it logs all your strava for YOU! You're a genius. You say "I will love", will PBR and I have new neighbors to ride with from MTBR?

    Oops! That was my 5am "not enough coffee" typing. No, not moving. I do, however, live just down the street in COS. I need to pop up and ride with you guys sometime!
