    I was thinking about Red Mesa, especially if I can get some veterans out there since i may not remember my way. however your "couple showers" forecast doesn't match what I see on NOAA. 60% chance all day, high of 47 for san ysidro. i can only ride sat am this weekend. White Mesa looks like a no-no with chance for mud.

    Whoa... pretty fancy data ya got there.

    I usually use my weather rocks to know when to ride:




    It's always 100% correct:

    - dry rocks means fair weather.
    - wet rocks means it's raining.
    - dusty rocks means a dust storm.
    - shadows on the rocks means it's sunny.
    - white rocks means it's snowing.

    Been lurking around here for a while, figured I'd sign up and post.

    Anyways, I finally got my new bike built up, and I'm itching for a good ride tomorrow.

    With all this rain, any recommendations? I'm pretty new to NM, so any suggestions would be great! I was thinking maybe White Mesa, but I wasn't too sure how it would be after all the rain we've gotten today (and maybe tomorrow morning).

    We were out at Red Mesa today which is pretty close to WM. There was a good amount of rain out that way. WM prob not a good plan tomorrow. I'd stick with the south foothills tomorrow.

    WM can get messy. Do you think Red Mesa would be good to go tomorrow?

    I need to get out to Otero Canyon one of these days, but given some of the features I've seen, I may want to hit it in the dry first!

    I was thinking that by the end of the week Otero might be ok. You don't have to worry about the mud now. We got about 5 in last night and is snowing hard right now. As fun as Otero is, I would rather have the snow now and Otero all summer.
