    dry trails in the valley

    Hypothetically speaking... if I wanted to ride this weekend, how far would I have to drive from green bay to find dry trails?

    Yeah. I tried to hit the North Kettles on the way home from Easter yesterday, but it was closed yet. I'm just dying for the Camp to open! I hit the drier parts of Baird yesterday, and will be there a lot all week. I'm a very conscious rider of what it takes to build and maintain a trail, so I try to ride very gentle this time of year. Of course, I didn't exercise as much as I'd said I would this winter, so it's not really like I can tear it up anyway :P

    lol likewise, i'm going to be doing my share of "reconditioning" (mostly me pushing my bike the last 6 feet up steep sections) this year as well...

    so Is it pretty dry west of 172?

    It sure seems dry. I'm disappointed that the camp isn't open yet Heading off to Baird again now. It's very frustrating this time of year, because I live on the west side and would much rather just run up to the camp. Oh well.

    High Cliff is as dry as a bone. I was up there the other day, wearing a clown suit.

    "Great news! The Mountain Bike and Horse trails will open on Saturday, April 18. These trails include the mountain bike and horse trails at the Reforestation Camp and the horse trails at Neshota Park."

    I was talking to the park director earlier this week, and he hinted to me "I wouldn't want it getting out that the park might be open this weekend". I dutifully kept my mouth shut, but now it's official and on the website. One of my good riding friends works that day, so we'll probably be on trail around 7-7:30am


    On a side note, if anyone finds a set of VW car keys, or a cateye computer plz let me know. Lost both last fall in the leaves due to a spill, and carelessness
