    Got to finally go for a good long ride today. David Canyon, 3-Bs, Otero and Tunnel. Longest ride for me in three months. Since I broke my collarbone. It was awesome! Trail conditions are pretty dang good. It's dry, but not as bad as last year. Last year the trails were powder. While heading down Otero I came across some Bern. Co Fire- Rescue guys walking a bike. They were with a biker that just broke his collarbone. Wow! Talk about flashbacks. He was in good spirits and walking out with the Fire guys. A slow healing process ahead. Every body take care out there.

    Odd that there were 3 or more ppl in his group, but they opted to call the firemen instead of helping him out themselves. They were all huddled in the p-lot while they firemen had to hump 3 miles up to fetch him. It only took one of them to bring his bike down, but there were 7 total. Pretty sure most, if not all, of his group had left by the time he made it out. The firemen were in good spirits, though, as was the dood from the pain meds.

    Conditions are very wet. We got hours of steady rain overnight last night. Just the kind of soaking we were needing. Going to make for some great conditions.

    Would you think it'd be too muddy/wet for an after work ride around 5 or so?

    I rode Birdhouse yesterday and the bottom was pretty dry. W. ridge, Otero, Tunnel connector as well. I am sure even if the trails got a lot of moisture, you would be good to go today.

    Even when ABQ gets a lot of rain, never sure about the trails.

    The East Mtns have been skipped with most of the rain Abq has been getting. Everything was getting dusty. There was about an hour of rain over by the Sandias earlier today. But no more south of I-40. Looks like hero dirt here now unless we get more rain later.

    With rain pretty much every day, and rain overnight. Conditions up here in the David Canyon area are fairly soft, wet and some mud. A little sunshine will help a lot. Conditions usually get better the further down the mtn you go toward Tunnel. Hoping for lots of hero dirt by mid morning. See you on the trail.

    Conditions were amazing today!!! My friend and I rode around noon and wow that was an amazing trail! A little soft at the very top where there is an intersection, being that it was our first ride on Otero and we are not from ABQ we decided to turn around, assuming we were at the top. Amazing ride on the way back down. Fast, flowy, jumps, log rides, drops, and perfect dirt. One of the best true mountain bike trails that I have ever ridden. You guys are lucky to have such an amazing trail literally 20 minutes from town.

    My friends chain broke and with no quick links it took a while, plus we played around on some logs and jumps. I think all around it was 2.5 hours but if it were just me up and down about 5 miles each way would have probably only taken about an hour

    Quite a bit of rain over the last couple of hours. Might be wet early tomorrow but I bet some good hero dirt by mid morning.

    Got to Otero around 10am and the water in the arroyo right out of the PL was running with lots of mud. After that one spot the trail conditions were as good as they can get. All the way up and including Three Bottles were perfect. Blue sky, tall green grass and great trails. What else can you ask for?

    I was on the trail early or I would have let you know that conditions were some where between killer and bad ass. Hope you went out and got some.

    Quite a bit of rain up here over the last 24 hours. Some steady rain right now at 6 pm. Probably going to be some muddy conditions early tomorrow.

    Chyeah, I tried Lower Pine for the first time this morning. I climbed for a while, it got muddy, I turned around, and promptly got a flat. Remind me never to ride within 24 hours of rain again!
