    and yeah, parking at Rice-Pinnacle on any night is the suck, but Wednesdays are particularly bad.

    Possibly he was trying to join the Wed night group ride.
    Yes, you can park at Ledford, Hard Times, etc but it is nice to park where the group starts and finishes.

    Anyways, sometimes you just need to get creative with the parking.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    For the Lower Rim ride, I will usually send people that cannot park at RP towards Hard Time, as they can usually hook up with the group where HT connector meets Hard Times road

    Just park in front of the gates, those spaces are always open.

    I was aware of a group ride but never saw anything that stood out as a particular group.I was not there to ride with "that" group anyway.
    The parking though was terrible with several parking on the grass and of course the side of the road.

    Jerry do we really need to send letter's? ""Please do send a letter to the USNFS of this issue. They feel there is plenty of parking."

    Oh, that is normal, get used to it.

    I would say for an hour or so around 5:30/6 pm (give or take a bit) is the hardest time to find a space. You have a changing of the guards during that time.

    As far as parking on the grass, curbs, etc.
    Like I said, get in where you fit in. Just don't block anything that shouldn't be blocked.

    Or, if you are not meeting a group then park at Ledford or Hard Times.

    So are there times when it's OK to park in front of the gate?

    No, I was just kidding. That would be the fast track to getting towed. Plus when kjlude crashes next the rescue team won't be able to get up the road.

    I dont think i havve never not been able to park there but I usually just park else where.

    I see people park in front of them but not recommended.

    And I have left the trails on my own power every time I have crashed thank you very much.

    I used to let folks access the woods from my house, but the bears freaked them out a bit. (Mom & two cubs are currently roaming the neighborhood near near RP.)
