    B-street conditions

    Looking to ride Sunday morning and I was wondering if B-street is rideable yet? If not I will just ride down at Case Mt as I know that is already dry

    I can't help with the conditions but I've heard a lot about B Street, is it worth the drive from Boston?

    Nah. You got way better stuff out your way. B street is barely worth driving 15 minutes to.

    No mileage, weak trails. Probably not worth driving 8.47 minutes. I have no idea why anyone even goes there.

    No features, just your typical flat, smooth, triple track.

    you guys are definitely playing it up too much. when a bunch of locals are on a thread saying a place sucks, it's usually the complete opposite. You should be saying, ya, you know, it's ok for an afterwork ride, but... nothing great I'll show ya around if ya want..... that would keep the suspicion down to a minimum

    Oh no! We've been figured out! Looks like you nerds took it too far.

    Seriously, some people need to get a new internet sarcasm meter. It's not rocket science. And in any case a quick youtube search will yield the answers to your query.

    If I trusted youtube alone to gauge every new place I rode I would have missed a lot of epic riding, in a region that has thousands of trails talking to others is a lot more helpful.

    i rode around 7.5 miles at B street today, its definitely more technical than earls side, i don't know any of the names of the trails i rode except i saw a sign for t-rex. I have the ride i rode mapped out on google maps so when i find a map( there was one on the board at the entrance) I will be able to figure out where i went.

    my email is ( well apparently i cant post an email address either until i hit 10 other posts. I have never used a forum with rules like that.)
