    Worst weather ever GRRRRRR

    I don't know about anyone else but here is SW Ontario it's been a rain, rain, rain summer so far. I have 5 days off and planned to ride my ass off and it's been rain, rain and more rain with a little rain tossed in on the side. I haven't been on my bike in 5 days and its looking like the next 4 days are still rain. This is really depressing to say the least, getting totally bummed out. The trails are getting really damaged this year from all this rain, people are still riding them when they are just to wet.

    Keep access to public lands open.

    Same in Vermont. All trails are closed. Been raining for the better part of June. No sign of letting up for the next week. Lame.

    Iowa. The Mississippi River has flooded 4 times already this year. The river nearest to me (Wapsipinicon) was in flood stage for weeks, settled back down into its banks for 2 days, and is in flood stage again. It has been relentless. Other MTBers around here have said they rode more in Dec-Mar than in the months since, myself included.

    Longing for Fall weather...

    Here in Central VT, today and yesterday have not been half bad for riding, the mornings have been rainy, but by the afternoon, the sun comes right out of the clouds. Hope it doesn't rain all weekend and next week like the forecast says.

    Going there Sunday if it stops raining. Not my closest trail but at least on the south side it should be dry enough to ride. My normal trails, Fanshawe, Wildwood and Dalewood are a mess.

    New York state broke their all time June precipitation record. Trails are actually remarkably dry though.

    Western Pa has been getting a good amount of rain but some sun as well. However, the soil has a high clay content so basically unrideable right now.

    Woodland, the Grand State of Confusion, it hit 102 today. Then, up to 108 for the rest of the week and HUMID! Like back east on a hot day. A very hot day. No rides after 10:00 here for the next week or so. So, it's ride the county roads tomorrow morning, then hide indoors again.

    A little rain would be great here if you can spare some.

    At least you can ride in that weather. Dry heat and all.
