    Santa Teresa

    Could someone please give beta, planning on riding it today, saw no obvious closures online, but not sure. I usually enter from the backside. (Hmm that reads odd)

    My friend rode it yesterday and said the dirt was perfectly fine for riding, but on his way out through the parking lot he got yelled at by a ranger to stay off the trails.

    The mud there is clay like when wet, you wont be able to turn your wheels within minutes. Add the gravel to the mud, its like putting a grinder on your chain stay. Avoid til fully dried.

    OK, he has his answer. Now we need to work on his understanding of gender in Spanish.

    :-)

    Teresa ends in an 'a' which is usually feminine in Spanish and other European languages so Santa Teresa. Santa Clara, Santa Barbara...

    Then there are tacos al pastor, not ala pastor, so masculine.

    After this deep and critical knowledge you can ride in places like Santa Rosa or Santa Cruz.

    Ooops, Santa Cruz? Yeah, sometimes Spanish is as screwy as English, but less so. Or, well, Santa Cruz is different...

    They have signs at the Main, Fortini, IBM parking lots. Not sure why but I never see the signs and I am being serious. Lol. I think I have some sort of selective eyesight or my eyes are distracted. A few time rangers have stopped me at the gate saying the trails were closed and I was like really?? Look at the sign right in front of you. Sure enough the sign was in the open position saying trails were closed. I don't ride on closed trails, penalties are heavy. 300-400 bucks. Ouch.

    Weird. My wife and I rode right past a ranger at the Stiles entrance yesterday. No closed sign and nothing more than a nod from him. Trails were nearly perfect.

    Had me paranoid, so I called the closure hotline ((408) 355-2200, press 7, then 4 for Santa Teresa). As of 9am Sunday, all trails were open.

    It is open. Most is pretty good. Top of RR is fast. Greasy in some places like bottom of RR. Sticky in some places like east facing singletrack on Ohlone and Stiles.

    Probably sweet and velcro in the right places! I am hoping the forecasted rain for Thursday/Friday misses Santa Teresa entirely, as I am tiring of fire roads.
    goodbye cruel world. I am leaving you today.

    ST was closed to bikes on Jan 19th Friday. My guess is that it will be closed for the weekend and maybe longer if some more weather rolls in.Santa Teresa-img_20180119_160532.jpg
