    Ha!

    We have a few berms out there and they hit them completely wrong! Up too high and blowing them out. That's pissing people off. I built 95% of this network, but I hardly ever ride out there anymore because it's turned into such a junkshow due to multiple reasons, but especially because some wackjob has painted every trail with huge colored arrows on trees, boulders, roots. I've posted some pics in here previously of that shit. It is my ride "out the door" spot. It's pretty fun, but we have much better options down the road so I opt for that instead.

    Have a kids spring break ďskiĒ trip scheduled for Gore next weekend Apr2-4. Wondering if I should bring bikes as well given current weather. Any idea if trails up there are even remotely rideable yet? Any resources I could check? Briefly looked at trail forks and last update was from November.

    The trails at Gore (or technically the North Creek ski bowl) will not be ready by then. But if next week is warm-ish and dry-ish, there will be stuff ready to go down here in Saratoga and also maybe halfway between in Queensbury/Glens Falls. Maybe not the best stuff, but something. Feel free to shoot me a PM for more info when it gets closer.

    Got a day off friday so looking to venture a little further from home and feeling the need for some gravity. Is anything north running dry yet or should I head south to Diamond Hill in RI?

    Reports that southern NH is pretty good now. Bear Brook is still a mess but South of that should be fine.

    Parking has become an issue around here. One spot in the Fort Rock area has 3 spaces, so people park on the side of the road. With Covid, commuting is next to nil, so that has made it even worse than it already was. The town just shut down parking on the road which is going to create more overflowing of the other spots. Definitely even a bigger mess is brewing.

    Good conditions here. Pic is not fort rock.

    It took me almost two years, but my g1 HT is back on dirt again. This is the first time I've ever built up a bike from the frame. It was quite a learning process and my wife was psyched that I had to buy more tools. Still a super fun ride!

    2021 NE - Flatten That Berm

    As dry as it ever gets in Cheshire county right now. The wind hasnít let up in weeks. Went out yesterday on the town trails, expecting it to be wet, even the slow to dry spots were bone dry.
    From yesterday

    Concord area and south are good. Did a gravel ride yesterday and mud season is pretty much over.

    Ha just got back from Gore and Whiteface, skiing was pretty fun, but thinking I coulda ridden based on what I saw of North Creek ski bowl. Woulda been cool to ski and then ride, but kids were pretty tired from all day ski anyway.

    Whatís with the pine cones this spring? Never seen so many! There was a youngish woman hand raking the trails today, kinda random, I said thanks! More trails are popping up in town. Love being able to ride out of the garage and be on the network two minutes later.

    Kingman is accessible from my backyard, so that's usually my go to when I can steal a few minutes. Been spending more time helping my 4 year old with the strider lately so she can use her new purple pedal bike waiting in the garage.
