    I might go Sunday as well...if its dry enough.....

    Speaking of JM...a friend of mine just dislocated his shoulder there last week...we rode it counter clockwise and towards the end its a pretty fast slight downhill....I was about 75ft behind him when his back tire hit a small stump in the weeds...it bucked him over the handlebars and down the slope on the left...head first right into a tree....OUCH !!

    Went out today from the papermill park connector for about 2 hours. Great riding, conditions were perfect. I did see a bunch of other riders, and a group of about 15 in TrailSpinners jerseys about to shove off from the Bryan's Field trailhead. I did the double horseshoe, lenape, bryan's field, whiteley farms, and david english trails and only bit it once. Good day for me!

    Three trails

    Here's three of the trails at White Clay. The vids are mostly complete runs, didn't record much climbing, and open field though. There may be some more to follow.

    Bryan's Field

    I did a figure 8 from the Bird sanctuary parking lot going counter-clockwise on lenape, through the chunnel, clock-wise onto bryans field, 2 loops around the skills trail, then up to the parking lot and down, back through the chunnel to finish the Lenape cut-off back to bird sanctuary.

    If a lone rider on a Sette Flite wished you a good morning around 12:30/1:00 today - it was me. I forget when "afternoon" starts....

    Do people actually do David English CCW? Doesn't sound fun. But it is incredibly fun CW. I love that loop!

    Out of all the time I've been to David English I've only ridden it CW 3x...and one of them was this past sunday !! If you do it CCW, the first hill is really nasty now that they added a bunch more of the whoops (for run-off I guess) after you get by that though it is smooth sailing pretty much...you def gotta try it

    I actually have not done DE clockwise -- the steep uphill with the bumps on it really sucks, but other than that it's fun!

    I rode parts of Middle Run & WCC yesterday...I'd say the trails were 95% good...real tacky which makes for awesome traction....There were a few mud spots (same places as always)
    I did notice that someone had added more gravel on some of the muddier parts of the trails leading away from the chunnel...Hmm...How did they get that stuff back there ?? 4 wheeler maybe (not much room for them) or a motorcross bike with a cart ?? by hand ??

    Yeah, that first hill you would encounter running CCW with all the whoop-de-do stuff just seems almost tailor made for going down. Climbing is one thing but climbing up that just sounds frustrating. I can see the rest of it being reasonable in the other direction.

    I was out yesterday too, and noticed on the uphill section of Lenape, if you go right instead of going left to go through the Chunnel, it looks like they had a walk-behind skid-steerer back there doing trail maintance. Just noticed the tracks and the trail was a little "squishy" - like a dirt jump not packed down completely.

    Beautiful day to ride yesterday - I hope I can get back out this weekend!

    I went out today -- had a flat out of the garage but pumped it up and it held for the ride. I parked at Hopkins Bridge on my way home from work and did the big loop to the chunnel, got lost a bit, and came back to complete the loop. Trails are in AWESOME condition. Definitely hot out!

    Rode today as well - Fantastic conditions. Parked @ the bird sanctuary, went left down to the chunnel, up through Bryans Field to hit the skills trail, then planned on riding the Whitley Farm loop, but my buddy lost a lung on the way to the parking area, so we just took the Tri-Valley connector to the top of Bryan's Field and blasted back down to the chunnel and climbed back up to the cars...still a great ride after being stuck inside @ work.

    Just out of curiosity, are there ever any races/events held @ Whiteclay?

    I had a nice ride yesterday (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/35668870). Started off at Papermill park and rode the connector in. I'm getting to know the middle run trails a bit better (ie not taking 4 laps to find my way out) and everything was in awesome shape. It was HOT but I finished right before the t-storms rolled in.
