    Best bet for riding this weekend around E/SE Mass? 3/8-3/9

    Temps are going to approach 50 this weekend and I need to ride. Any suggestions on where will have he most bare ground? South shore area? Duxbury? Miles Standish? Cutler Park?

    The Cape, if you can swing it. Otis, Willow St, or Nickerson. (TOT seems to still need a bit more time). Just rode Willow St a couple hours ago and it's pretty much perfect. It just doesn't ever get muddy, ever. Like the dirt is incapable of becoming mud. It's weird.

    Reports from Otis have been impressive. I haven't made it down there, but from friends who have even with all the melting this weekend it should stay dry.

    Rode Willow street on the Higgins Crowell rd side. Did 14 miles of great riding but it was very wet. Not muddy, just wet. Ground was too frozen for the water to drain through. Parked at the conservation lot near the police station and rode both sides of the street.

    I did Otis today 15 miles and only saw a tiny bit of snow. Lots of water spots and greasy places. Near the end there was actually some mud but still worth it
