    Mt. Gretna/Governor Dick ride

    I know it's short notice but I'm looking to ride tomorrow 4/6/15. I haven't been here before so if anyone would like to ride let me know. Mid morning/noon is when I'm planning to go.

    Looking for fun, fast, single track; downhill; tech areas (may struggle).

    Let me know if anyone is interested.

    Scott, did you get out? I'm planning on a post work ride and wondering if things are fairly dry?

    Went out today. Ride was amazing. Apparently I went up a trail that was all uphill. The downhill was fantastic. I believe I ended up on part of trail 15 which was great.

    Trails were dry. May be a few spots with some damp ground but overall it was nice. Saw about 5 other cyclists out and a handful of hikers.

    Agreed Scott, terrific conditions. I typically park at the nature center, ride up to the tower and continued out the gravel road a quarter mile or so, then make a left onto 4, take that down to 15, ride 15 out to 13, left onto 13, ride 13 then left onto 5. 5 will loop back around to Pinch road then continue along the trail that parallels the road and that'll bring you back to the nature center.

    Dad and I went out yesterday around 4:30.
    Parked in Colebrook. Rail-trail into Gretna, then up by the Hideaway, up to where the houses and 5 meet, to the Pinch road lot, up to the tower, down 4 to 15, left on 13, and then back down rail trails to Colebrook. Nice nearly 14 mile ride.

    Was actually a little dry. Found 4 to be a little washy, wished it would have had some moisture in it. I keep being amazed by the Remedy every time I take it out!
