    Rode OP on Monday. It's not bad at all. You'll get some really swampy mud here and there but definitely ride-able.
    Don't let a little water scare you guys & gals.

    I rode Mac this morning. The trails are still pretty damp, but can be ridden without tearing them up. However, there are still some low areas covered with water so you might have to double back.

    I rode Leon Creek Saturday ( 9/22/12 ).

    I started at Bamberger and rode all the way down to Bandera ( thru OP ) and back up to Bamberger, about 12 miles. 90% was very rideable, the remaining 10% ( near Bandera ) was more than a little muddy.

    All in all a great ride, I'd say get on out there
    I'd rather be riding than healing, body armor is your friend !

    Mcallister is decent now. Very few spots that are changed by the flood/rain. I haven't been anywhere else in the city.

    Yes, Mac is back to being Awesome, Government Canyon is great, and I hear that Leon Creek and Salado are decent in most areas. Go out and enjoy the First day of summer.

    Got out and put in a few miles yesterday. Started at 3:00pm and it was freakn hot. There were a few soft spots and lots of debris along the trails. Some covered the trails so bad you had to take a different route.

    I knew I was in for a hot one. Some days the humidity really saps your strength.

    Got out for a ride in Leon Creek yesterday. I was a great morning with partly cloudy skies. I rode from Bandera/Mainland to the Bird Sanctuary and back. Saw several big groups with lots of newbs in tow. Always good to see new peeps taking interest in the trails. Got a solid two hour ride in and called it quits before it got too hot. Weather permitting I'm gonna get up early a couple of times this week and ride.

    Hey Paul...I'm down for that. I may be headed out of town for the day but if not I'll be there bright eyed and bushy tailed. How many miles you plan on doing? I'm going to shoot you a PM with my number.

    Re: San Antonio Trail Conditions?

    Great ride this morning with Paul and his buddy Ray. Been several rides since I've cleaned her up so I gave her the spa treatment.

    I went to OP park last Saturday in the morning and its all dried, however, I didn't ride after rain. I think it should be ok to ride cuz rains were only brief. So.. i could be wrong

    I ran McAllister this morning and the trails varied from dust free super highways to tacky and impassable. There were several mud holes in the usual places. Probably needs another day or two for most trails to be rideable.

    Mac was good on Wednesday with a just a few blocked areas due to standing water. It should be great now as there's been no rain.
