    Harbin Park

    Rode Harbin last night and it is in awesome shape, extremely fast and grippy. A few mud spots in low lying areas, but nothing more than a couple feet. Will be going back tonight if anyone is interested.

    Harbin is in Fairfield, just north of Cincy.

    @tangaroo how many miles of trail are up there now? I haven't been there in around 5 years or so.

    There is Orange Loop which is ~3.6 miles long and a green trail which is maybe about a mile long + some of what's called connector trails. Ride there regularly almost every weekend recently since that's the closest decent trail from where I live (have ~20 min drive).

    Thanks for the reply! I haven't been there in around 5 years, so I think I am due!

    Its a great place for a short ride, or if you want to do multiple laps. The orange trail is a blast, especially a long section with a couple root drops and flowy spots.

    Least strenous would be probably riding orange loop clockwise and then climb the fire road back to parking lot. If your girlfriend doesn't ride regularly, try maybe Hueston Woods trails or John Bryan State Park (but that may be longer drive depending on where you live) - that's where I rode with my wife.

    I would give the trails a few days to dry out first with this record rainfall.

    hadn't even thought about that. Looks like I'll stick to the roads until we get some dry weather.
