    SNOW this morning, Sat 4/30/11!!

    Not much here in GJ, maybe an inch on the cars & lawns.

    Camping for the FFTF might be exciting this morning. I hope someone posts about it.

    edge loop conditions ?

    Hi All

    Just rolled into GJ from Utah as part of a MTB trip from UK

    Was wondering if anyone knows if edge loop is rideable at the moment ?

    And dare I ask if foti is clear of snow / mud ?

    Cheers

    Even with the rain today, I presume everything will be good to go on Friday?

    Maybe good to go eat pizza at the Hot Tomato!

    Yesterday they predicted sunny & warm for Thursday, today they predicted cloudy & cool for Thursday & Friday. Who knows? If (and only if) we don't get any more rain after about noon today, AND the sun comes out, the trails might be great on Friday. OTOH, they could be a muddy mess or anything in-between. Spring time can be very unpredictable.

    Thanks, Rick. I am going off of NOAA's forecast which has sunny and 70s for tomorrow.

    We are there all weekend camping for a bachelor party, so if we cannot ride on Friday, we'll just drink beer.

    That would be the local Channel 8 weatherman @ 6:00 am this morning.

    Much better outlook this evening with Channel 11 predicting 70 for Thu & 78 for Fri.

    Might be GREAT, or.....

    Hopefully it's not raining as much out there as it is here in Denver.

    Heading up in a few weeks for SS USA and want to hit Fruita either coming or going. What are the best trails to ride if we only have one day?

    Thanks for the info.

    Any beta on current conditions? Thinking about heading over for a few days and it looks there have been some scattered showers out there.

    It has rained every day since Monday .
    Today (Fri.) I saw a group of riders on I-70 headed back towards Mack .
    Trails must not be much fun if there riding back on the interstate.
    Just about didn’t make it back to my campsite at R.V. Figured I better get out while I could!
    Love riding in that mud . Everyone should endure that experience at least once in there life.

    rustlers was dry this am

    was not sure it would be but had a few easily avoidable wet spots. So the Kokopelli area trails may be ok so far this am, barring any more rain

    Thanks for the responses, figured it was muddy last week and stuck around the front range (no riding here either). Rode our bikes to the bars instead

    Coming to camp at Monument and ride Fruita trails in mid-July. Any updates?

    Also, anyone know of any places to shower off after riding the trails in Fruita and GJ? We don't have a solar shower and would like to get clean after riding.

    TIA!

    Anyone been out to the Lunch Loops today (Tues) or yesterday? I imagine that it must be pretty sloppy but maybe the rain missed that area. Anyone have any luck out there?

    No way they've avoided all this rain. I'm not even considering trying it until Fri maybe? We got turned back by lightning Sun, never even got the bikes off.

    But, to answer your question, no I haven't actually gone out to verify.

    LL has been taking direct hits the last couple days, and again last night. Should be awesome this afternoon though, looks like we are out of the monsoon cycle.

    Loma was freakin' great last night, and practically nobody there. Total buff.

    Yeah, Koko was excellent last night. All this rain is awesome! I've only watered my lawn a handful of times this year and it's greener than it's ever been!

    Indeed. The Loops were in fine shape yesterday evening.
    Cobi, were you the dude that couldn't find his keys down in the main lot?

    Nope, we parked off clunker. Though I did almost forget my keys at the top of Ribbon! That would have sucked at 11pm.

    Ribbon was awesome last night. The usual sandy bits were all packed down perfectly.

    Fruita's Kokopeli trails tomorrow?

    Tomorrow's supposed to be rather wet... Just wondering, are the Kokopeli trails near Fruita ridable in these conditions?

    Cheers!

    I just got back from Moab yesterday and they didnt get much rain. My FIL called today and said it didnt rain much if any today either. GJ got very little today. I was able to mow my lawn tonight. Trails might be fine. Call Over the edge for fruita/loma trail conditions. Call Ruby Canyon for Lunch Loop conditions

    Other ideas:
    Drive over the Colorado National Monument
    Allen Unique Auto museum
    Museum of Western CO
    Go cart racing at GJ motor speedway?
    Gateway Auto Museum

    Might be OK. Call or stop by Over the edge for conditions in the AM. They will probably have current info.

    No. Parts of Kokopelli (especially Rabbit Valley) turn to molasses when wet. No bueno.

    Looks like the best riding will be Sunday/Monday assuming trails have time to dry out.

    Just got off the phone with a buddy who is down at Rabbit Valley. He said the clay there was pretty slick-definitely not going to ride for a while.

    Fuita Conditions

    I realize this report will only be valid today and tomorrow, but what are the conditions in Fruita right now?

    Just realized I have to burn some vacation before year end and thought I should try to take immediate advantage.

    I may head that way this evening to get in some riding before it's all over for awhile.

    Moab conditions would be nice to know as well, if you happen to have hit both lately.

    I thought about trying to get a lap in on the White Rim this week, but I am guessing it will get snow cold along with Colorado Wed and Sat?

    Thanks,

    Conditions are really good right now, sunny, 50's and 60's. Last week brought us some much needed rain to pack down the dust. Wednesday calls for some cooling (40's) and possible rain, then it warms up again. I imagine Moab is about the same.
