    What's Rideable Right Now?

    I was thinking maybe I'd go for a little pedal today. What's rideable right now? I've heard rumours of people riding City Creek / Shoreline. But I'm worried about the icky clay sections. Anyone ridden the whole thing? How about Bobsled?

    Mudfest

    over there..Your best bet is the sand based trails over in the draper area of corner canyon..I went out 2 days ago and was able to hit a lot of the lower BST trails over there.Mostly sand so you dont tear up the trails when their wet...Everything else its gonna be another 3 weeks i'd imagine before they fry out enough,....Getting close though!!!

    Cool! I was wondering about Corner Canyon but worried because it's all north-facing. Sounds like maybe I'll take the SS out for some suffering then. It's gonna hurt no matter what I ride. So I might as well go for max suffering :-)

    How about Antelope Island?

    I think I'm going to try and ride out there tomorrow. I built a new hardtail up, and I'm dying to get it outside.

    There is a trail that goes from the B in bountiful to Farmington canyon that transverses the side of the mountain. Most of this should be rideable.

    Fill us in on how it goes. Early season's best on those sandy trails.
    (edit 3/1)P.S. Isn't this an early season tradition with you?

    I-street is still under about 8" of ice, so I assume bobsled is no go joe-joe. If these temperatures stay somewhat consistent, maybe we can shred in a couple of weeks. I miss shredding so much that I got excited making hashed browns yesterday.

    That sure sounds tempting.

    Hmm...

    New bike or Antelope Island?? I highly recommend both, however!

    Early season tradition of a new bike? Wow now that's an early season tradition I wish I could afford, especially if they look like that purple beauty you just built.
    Since it looks like your here and not on the island it looks like we'll have to wait for your review of both. ;- )

    Yup...honey-do won out

    I spent the morning cleaning the basement and getting the new bike tuned up! So it's going to be next weekend before I make it out there.
