you are right it is about time.. now we need to let mother nature run her course....  we need to stay off the  trails till it stops raining.. i know thats alot to ask... but if you can.. great if  you cant well i understand that too..... but that would pack the trails down good..

see ya'll this weekend.

What are we supposed to do?  What do normal people do on the weekend?

This is great. It's not only helping trail conditions but the fire problem as well. It will still be a lil tuff leaving the young'n though.

Very true.....especially anywhere that is hard pack (or not soft as the case maybe).  It creates ruts in hardpack pretty bad.

It may be hard, but at least we should try until it is not really sopping wet...damp isn't so bad at least

Depending on where you ride at Boyette, you might be OK....some of the meadows areas are more grassy than dirt.  If it's really sloshy though, avoid the dirt, especially hardpack (see posts above)...my 1 1/2 cents..... (beer has taken away the other 1/2 at this point in the evening - thank goodness it's raining and we have a work day in the morning, otherwise my ride would be a little rough tomorrow!!!)

where is everybody planning to ride this afternoon?  and how long is it best to wait after a rain to soak in before riding to be good for the trails?
