Boyette and Alafia trail conditions????
« on: June 27, 2011, 05:12:16 PM »
I am planning on taking my 12 year old son riding tomorrow.  After all of the rain, does anyone know the trail conditions at Boyette and/or Alafia?  I know Ridgeline is closed, but my son doesn't ride that trail yet anyway.  Any information would be helpful.  Thanks!

Has anyone been to Alafia. I'm planning to go on Monday with some friends and we havent been down there in a while. Hopefully the rain let's up and hillsborough doesn't get any rain....

I rode it yesterday mostly Northcreek. Pretty decent slight erosion. After I left though it rained again as soon as i reached the intersection with the gas station.

I rode Alafia this morning. It was OK, but the weather is starting to wear on it.

I rode North Creek and it seemed fine outside of a few muddy spots. The new option is washed out and should probably be avoided to keep from ruining it. I skipped Gatorback as I assumed it would be too vulnerable to my love of skidding down hill. I skipped Moonscape since I don't enjoy the wet clay. I saw a few guys come out of it and they said they regretted riding it and couldn't get traction.

Update:
7/11/11

We rode Alafia today. Moonscape and Northcreek were wet and not fun. However we rode rollercoaster and it was great but our trip was cut short when my friend split a ritchey seat post on rollercoaster.....yeah. lolol. He came down the big dip in rollercoaster when you are about 1/3 through and when he hit the gulley he slammed his ass on his FS bike and bam!!!!! The post split down the side, the saddle went flying and he smacked his balls. lol Hes calling ritchey to see what they will do.

Note: his bike is a brand new with 4 miles on it Jamis Dakar.....

its a term used in cycling usually to make fun of what every customer says when they want to warranty a part, but implies that they are lying.

for example, they try to warranty their Epic that they were dirt jumping that technically voids the warranty, but instead of saying Hey I was hitting 40foot doubles on a cross country bike the story starts with, I was Just Riding Along, JRA.

But he was literally just riding along...
