Is there still a ride planned for tomorrow?  I was planning on being there for the 4:30 ride.

It is still on the trails drain and dry fast I'm going over first thing in the morning to check things out so if it's to muddy I will post around noon. So check back then. Thanks

Since everything else is red on the Northside of Indy, I will hold off on coming out until I see your status report. My back yard flooded last night and it almost never does, we got a LOT of rain last night. I can't help but think that it's going to be pretty sloppy at Flat Fork, I bet the creek will be beautiful though.

Thank you Rick for the preview this morning.  The trail is going to be a lot of fun when it gets a little more dry and you can carry speed into the banked turns.


The features in the skills area are challenging with minimal danger if you go off the side.


Looking forward to going back.

Are the conditions good for the preview ride? I'm hoping to try the fat bike, on a trail hopefully.


I just got back from vacation, I guess rain came back with me. :(

Hockey and jfish we got hammered yesterday with rain the trails is very much rideable but how's tomorrow around 6:30 sound. Give it one more good day to dry and it will be perfect?

I am 50/50.  I will confirm by midday tomorrow depending on how my evening looks.  Thanks.

Had a nice time this afternoon with you skinny tire commando's! This park has a ton of potential and should bring great reviews when complete, it's a bike trail and a bike playground rolled into one. I'll post pictures soon or if you want a sneak peek pictures are posted now on Facebook on the "Fat & Mountain Bike Lounge" page. Please join us there.

Thanks to everyone who came out and glad everyone had a good time. Not sure how much use it will get since its not an HMBA trail. But hey no matter it's a half mile from home and I know a dozen people that will get plenty of trail time on it when the other trails are red. Thanks Rick & Chris
