    Pretty sure it is muddy today. Late Wednesday it *might* be rideable. Thursday should be good.

    With over an inch this weekend and cloudy/cool conditions I would say Thursday will be good, Wednesday will have some wet spots still, probably 80% rideable.

    The dirt in my yard (a good proxy for WC) is still wet. It sprinkled lightly for a few minutes this morning. Give it a few days; AB's timeline sounds good!

    Perfect trail work weather. Berms are born on days like this.

    Think WC will be rideable this weekend? Got a new bike and I'm itching to make a couple laps.

    edit: holy shit I lurked for nearly 7 years.

    Yes, as of moonlit midnight. Wet at Marks art and in a few spots.

    Also curious, as in, would like to ride tomorrow if possible. I don't have an answer for you, though.

    I was out there today but only saw part of the trail. I think there will be some wet spots but it should be very rideable. The couple of bikes I saw were not muddy but I don't know where they road or didn't ride.

    Just got back from a lap at Walnut Creek. Trail is overall in great condition! A few wet or damp spots in the usual suspects (Point Six, Mark's Art, one wet spot in Tangle of Trails), but easily avoided without contributing to trail widening. Weather was just spectacular, and there were quite a few hikers and dogs out there today. Fortunately they mostly stay on the wider trails and the concrete path. Did see lots of mountain bikers, though! Don't people have jobs in this town!?

    I rode up that new trail towards the parking lot at the end again. That is a lot more work than just riding up the road.

    Trail building crew is working on that section of new trail up to the parking lot today at 6 pm. Come out and enjoy the weather by giving WC some love!

    The new trail east of the pool parking lot is about half roughed in. Lots more work to do to finish it. But it could use wheels on it now to help pack it in.

    Finished trail will have berms and rollers added to make it more fun than riding the road.
