    Trail conditions / weather conditions week of May 20 2010

    Hi Everyone,

    Please post weather and trail condition questions here for May.

    Fort Collins: We got rain here last night (5/19) so I'd say today on dirt will be really messy. It is supposed to be 80 degrees and sunny this weekend so the trails should be perfect!

    Georgetown

    Silverdale, Silver Creek and Empire Pass are GTG haven’t tried the RR grade from Plume yet. Usually snow until the first of June. Barbour Fork should be GTG also. Some of the ice flow was still there last week , but looked like you cold ride the lower trails
    .Waterline/tr. 48/Wayne's World was a blast.

    All was clear a week ago or more, should be fine unless it pours later today.

    I rode Chimney/Apex/Sluicebox/PnS with Bad Andy! on Monday: conditions were hero dirt! Small runoff on P-n-S but should be dry by now. There's been no appreciable moisture since then, and my gal roide up Chimney to Windy Saddle last night. Still good... Get some!

    I rode some of Alderfer yesterday. Mostly dry with a few wet spots I had to hop off the bike and walk.

    While everyone is at it suppose I should jump in

    How about White Ranch and Golden Gate? Looking at earlier threads it was muddy this week. Do folks think that it is going to be dry enough by Sunday? I am from Fort Collins and am going to be in Denver on Sunday.

    Hmmmm.

    Going riding Saturday afternoon (probably Walker Ranch) if you're getting back on the mountain bike and want to join. But you probably don't know who I am with this user name. (hint: I have a friend who calls you "roadie")

    I am a roadie! Gotta work Sat, may do the road Sun and do some sort of Deer Cr/High Grade climb. But if things fall together, I was considering a Buff Cr ride/S Platte flyfish bifecta

    Saw Joe at Abasin couple weeks ago. So who be this bagwhan ?

    Bergen's looking good

    Rode Too Long to Bergen (didn't go to the top though given the time) last night. Only a few very small mud spots - nothing of any real note though.

    Quiet up there in the evening on a weeknight! Only 2 other bikes, and both were at the bottom as I started up. No hikers either. Just me and the Elk Meadows Elk.

    Cool, thanks CR, headed there soon. Edit: summit spur clear to Scenic View sign where there are still a few remnant snow piles but most rideable.

    I rode Chimney Gulch and Apex yesterday, conditions were good. Maybe I'll go try Trucker's route today with the "restrictions".
