    Advice for riding the Cape this week

    Hi! Looks like there should be some melting weather Monday, tue and wed. My friend said there isnít much snow on the cape and hoping most goes away for ok riding Tuesday and wed. Any suggestions as to the best and possibly driest riding?
    Was thinking Otis or Trail of Tears? Have never done any riding there at all. Any advice is appreciated!

    With snow on the ground the last I heard, Tues/Wed could be wet. But the Cape drains well. Unless the ground is frozen.

    Thereís a couple of inches of snow there. Iíll be riding Ex7 tomorrow but looking at the ccnemba Strava page, fat bikes are everywhere.

    Conditions were perfect at Higgins Crowell. But with the warmup, things will. E turning to slush. The hope is that it will melt and bare ground will return to Cape Cod.

    Thanks for the info! Hoping it clears up down there with the upcoming rain. If the traffic werenít so nightmarish Iíd consider a Xmas eve ride.

    It's a fun time with refreshments afterwards at the store. Rides leave from the store. Pretty sure it's gonna be run like last years. They should be posting something any day now.

    Can you recommend a particular trail system?

    I kind of think duxbury is the most fun, with it's twisty and turny flow, but there isn't a ton of mileage there. Otis is always good. always.

    I'd put Nickerson up against deluxebury or Otis so long as you know where you're going and hit the stuff along rte 6 and the "training loop". It's all good tho. For Pinehills park in front of Seth's storage trailer at Serious Cycles and ride the stuff across the street then explore the moto trails off of the ridge behind the shop out to Sandwich Rd. Seth is a great guy. I try to buy something, anything from him when I'm there. I owe him from my last visit....

    I hit deluxebury quite often. It's very wheeee! Even on a fatbike.

    Due to weather the Sea Sports ride got postponed. A few of us are planning on a longer New Year's Day ride that will link up TOT, Otis, and many other spots along the way. Depending on how we do it it should be anywhere from 35-50 mile ride. Would love to do my 70 mile version which includes more stuff to the east, but it's gonna be a chilly day.
