Hello people that know more about biking than me. I'm new to the forum, fairly new to off-road biking. Looking for advice for a Croom ride on Friday 1/2. I've been out there about 6 times, but it's been over a year since my last visit. I usually park at Tucker Hill and head towards the clay pit. Well, that's where I usually end up. I can't say I specifically aim for that location, but the trail leading up to the clay pit is right up my alley. I feel that if I head North from that location I end up with miles of soft sand and palmetos. I like the fast canopied sections with camel backs. Any suggestions of where to ride based on the best conditions of the trail. I'd like to avoid sand, but I know that's close to impossible. I'm actually hoping for rain on Wed or Thurs. And I've had my fill of tight, technical areas at Hills River State Parks.
I'd give myself about a 4 or 5 on the skill ranking, so please don't recommend anything like the black diamonds at Alafia.
Any help or updates on trail conditions is much appreciated. If you happen to be riding Friday afternoon and see two guys that look like they just dusted off their bikes, feel free to stop and say hi.
