    BCT @ Bumble Bee Trail Conditions

    Looking to get out of the snow in Prescott Sunday morning and ride the BCT. Anyone know what the conditions are like around Bumble Bee road?

    Thanks

    I just drove back to Prescott from Phx, and it was raining lightly in that area but I don't think there has been enough rain to make it anything but epic (and cold) it's15 degrees at my house 9pm.

    Conditions were pretty much perfect today! Next to zero mud and super tacky singletrack. Did the section from Bumble Bee south for the first time, pure awesomeness! Trails were obviously a lot better than P-Town!

    Cheers to that, Shuttled BB to EH today, started at 7:15 it was 34 degree's nice tailwind till LPL. Headwind rest of the way. Trail conditions were as good as it gets. Real tacky.

    Nice! Was that your Element at BB? How many miles from BB to EH?

    We started about 9am and was about 37 degrees...warmed up real fast! We had the entire trail to ourselves, big group from Sedonuts was just starting when we got back.

    Epic conditions as I expected. I should have mustered the energy to go down and ride but instead I slept in until 10 and watched football all day. I might run down Wed. after work for the HT mine to BB section.

    That's cause all them Phoenix people don't come out of their houses till it's at least 50 degrees out. Going south was fun. Definitely need to shuttle one of these days.

    You make jokes but......BBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRR........

    Surprising, there were a good number of folks at Deem Hills today........freezing (well, not actually freezing....as normally one uses the freezing point of water as the reference to "freezing"...................... never mind..............)....

    Interesting side; I have only ridden from TMR to EH once and it was about 2 years ago. Yesterday, It was SOFT!! That combined with the saddle time and the headwind......we were GASSED at the end.
