Dear Mountain Biker,

As much as I hate to say it, I doubt that FATS will be dry enough to ride this weekend. It rained yesterday, it is supposed to rain again this afternoon, and the rest of the week is predicted to be the normal summertime 20% chance of afternoon thunderstorms. I think we've received nearly 21" of rain since June 1st and it has rained nearly every day for the last 30-something days.

We sent someone out to scout the trail last week and there was standing water where there has never been standing water, as well as water running down the trail. It's a mess and will probably take at least 5-7 sunny days with temperatures in the 90s before the tread dries out.

The twitter feed @FATSupdate is the most accurate and current source for trail conditions, so I would just watch the twitter feed.

Surprisingly, I read that Blankets Creek, near Woodstock, GA, is open so you might try heading towards Atlanta or go north.

Sorry I don't have better news.


Of course, this means that locals should stay off FATS too.

Thank you for your support.
