    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Fruita Trails on Tuesday?

    So if it stormed last night, are the trails "impassable" today? We came out here for a few and would hate to waste a day.

    Storms

    I would stay away from 18rd (mud) . Koko's, Rabbit Valley, Westwater should be OK, these are mostly sandy areas and handle the rain pretty well. Currently Raining at the lunch Loops as well.

    Not familiar with the lunch loops. thanks for the advice! We rode Mary's Loop yesterday after getting in, so this area should be OK?

    I'm not sure it really rained enough to make a big difference. Lunch Loop in particular has the capacity to absorb a lot of water at this point.

    Recipe for Hero Dirt

    Take dry dusty sandy conditions, add about 4 cups of rain, mix well till the dirt is moist, but not sloppy, roll big knobby tires over the dirt without skidding to keep dirt a smooth consistency. Mmmm, good.

    The weather mixed up a nice batch of hero dirt out on Holy Cross this morning. My tires made that nice soft ripping sound like pulling apart velcro.

    Trails definitely needed it as things were getting a might bit powdery. The other day the switchbacks on Curt's Lane were so blown out I was doing a two wheel drift in every turn. Today it felt like I was riding rails.

    Get out there and get a taste while supplies last.
    Uh-huh, uh-huh. Okay. Um Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about uuhhh, things. Uhh... the things.

    Those of us who work are wondering what time you were riding the Cross this am?

    The hound and I dropped off the kiddo ~8:30 so I was pedaling by 8:45 or so. Pretty much had the place to ourselves. I think there were 3 other cars when I hit the lot, and I didn't see a soul till I was almost back to the car.
