    If I go it will probably be around 10:00-10:30. I'm hoping to out of my meeting around 9:00. I can then run home, pick up my bike, and head up there. I've never been to Amelia but I'm guessing its a little less than and hour from Homestead.

    Conditions were pretty good, bugs were not bad at all. Ground was a little damp so that nice sandy dirt gets slung up and stuck to everything, but other then that it's pretty nice.

    I rode Amelia last week and noticed several changes from the last time I rode. I have to say that the In Da House crew has done an amazing job of (1) maintaining the trails and (2) adding new sections/features.

    I got into mountain biking around September of last year and started out riding Amelia, mainly since it's close to where I live. Back then the trails at Amelia had some extremely muddy sections, sections that were way overgrown (literally riding through bushes) and ants that would make your arms itch like crazy. With all of that, I still rode and didn't care since I was doing something new.

    The difference in the trails from when I started riding to now is like night and day. The deep mud pits are gone, the bushes are gone, and there are new sections. It used to be that the trails would only get cleaned up right before a race, but now these guys are keeping the trails in good shape year round.

    Since I learned at Amelia I've ridden Oleta and Markham. I like all three parks since each one seems to have it's own character.
