    Harrisonburg weather: Worth a try this weekend or bag it?

    Hello,

    Wife and I have been wanting to try Harrisonburg for a while and were thinking of driving down from DC/NoVA for the weekend. Forecast has Friday clear with 40-50% chance on Sat and Sun. Is stuff there still rideable (and enjoyable) after a little rain or does it all just turn to soup like here in NoVA? Advice from locals would be greatly appreciated!

    In Roanoke, a similar area in terms of topography, rain does not hurt you much. Creek bottom trails get wet, but the higher stuff is usually fine. Most western Virginia stuff drains well.

    Most of the trails in the GWNF shed water really well so you should be fine. There are just a couple of lower level trails that hold water. Also be aware though that the SM100 race is happening on Sunday so you'll probably want to ride Friday or Saturday. Trying to do a casual ride with 600 other bikers may not be a whole lot of fun!
