    We are drying out quick. I think the big melt in Feb ate most of the ground frost and it's been draining ever since. The streams are full, but the trails are suprisingly dry right now. Granted, they're a mess of downed trees and branches. Sawzall has been getting a lot of use.

    It was wet until about 3 Wednesday afternoon but this wind and dry air ought to be helping dry things out. We're supposed to get a couple more inches Friday morning and possibly some more Sunday morning though I'm traveling for dirt Saturday morning if necessary.

    Time to ditch the studs. Running studs up front and rubber in the back was pretty good overall for the mixed conditions we typically have. Only on a couple of rides I missed having studs out back. This was the first time I've tried this set up and will do it again.

    Not quite dirt, but have you checked out the Vassalboro mill yet?

    I haven't! I heard it's pretty cool...the last few posts I've seen said they were running random hours though. Is there a regular schedule?

    I think weekends tend to be irregular, but I believe they have it open Tuesday nights for the rest of the month.

    18 NE - Go on, ride when it's wet

    Slogged out 8 miles and 1200 vert. ft. of sno-mo trails while it was still frozen this morning. Still pretty decent coverage in the woods but not for long.

    I snapped this right before riding past a homeless heroin commune/camp by the train tracks. Good times. Click image for larger version.

    I haven't ridden there in 10 years, but I'd love to go if you don't mind showing me around.


    Rode Big River down in RI today, impressed. Great network and easy drive from Boston. A ton of trails, did 20mi and looking at the map could have done another 20. Very surprised.

    That place is pretty legit, no? There is better tech stuff further south in Arcadia.

    Boston Lot and Ascutney, what more do you need?
    Both are expansive, both rule hard.

    I posted about where to find demo bikes near Dartmouth, looking for that info. Rocky Mountain, Santa Cruz or Yeti.

    The best shop in that area is Mason Racing Cycles. I'm not sure what brands he stocks or demos.

    Rumor has it that Bear Brook, WIllowdale, and HP are all riding. Anyone with info? I've sent a message to the North Shore Nemba people but haven't heard back (I know BB isn't in their jurisdiction)

    Yeah, I'm sure they're all good to go. I know couple people have hit Georgetown into Willow and it looked good.

    My knee is f'd again. I hate my old knees.

    Yeah I was really surprised. I'd love to check out Arcadia next time, it fairly easy to navigate?

    Would you rent a long travel 29-er or a stout 27.5 if you only had two days to ride?
