It seems like nothing but rain and more rain lately; almost 4" in the past five days, and it looks like another storm is lining up to hit again later this afternoon.


Looking at the forecast, it seems like it may be Sunday before things finally have a chance to dry out.


Pretty good chance there will be trees and limbs down the next time the trails see any riders.

Yep. That's right. More rain. Again. Maybe a break by Saturday for a couple days?


Things are wet and overgrown, and the trails look more like a path through the jungle.

Hiked a few of the trails this morning.


Some puddles and the usual wet places are wet, but for the most part, it was pretty solid. If the rain holds off today, or we only get a little, things should be pretty good heading into the weekend.

Should be good, but keep an eye on scattered rain on Friday.

The report I got last night was that the rocks are slippery in places. With all the rain and humidity we've had, the moss and fungi are growing well.

We were really hoping to ride O'bannon tomorrow around 930 or 10 am, anyone who lives out that way know if the trails will be dry enough by then? Never been there so I don't know how long it takes to dry and if it's dangerous to ride the rocky sections when wet.

Rode O'bannon yesterday, Sunday the 7th.  I would say Yellow, the flow sections burms were pasty and the rocks/roots are slick with heavy humid air.  Still and amazing trail system, can't wait for this place to continue to grow!

Hoping the green light stays on through tomorrow! It will be my 3rd attempt at getting a ride in while I'm in the area on business.

I'll finish up a meeting in Brandenburg at 1:00 PM tomorrow. Hopefully riding by 2:00ish.

It's a long shot, but anyone riding then? 

Lap?

Hey guys, I was just curious if you're allowed to night ride O Bannon?

Just an FYI for anyone riding this monday the 29th, we are going to be doing some more trail work on breeden ridge. A couple rollers will be added possibly, along with a little clearing of loose rock. Perehaps getting the jumps poppin better as well!!  8)
