    Damp-ish and mildly drippy this morning (Sunday, New Year's Eve).

    Props to whoever finished the berm at the bottom of tangle of trails. When the first half of the berm went in a few weeks ago, I kept thinking that I should make time to finish it. Kudos to whoever did - it is a great add.

    If today was sunny, *possibly*. The fact that it is cold and wet this morning would keep me from even trying it. We didn't have a lot of rain but it was slow, steady and cold. That means it soaks in, it doesn't run off. That means more mud and puddles.

    Wednesday @ 11:30ish. It's still raining off and on. Do an out and back on the paved Southern Walnut Creek Trail (20 car-free miles round trip), or many outs and backs on the paved Northern Walnut Creek Trail.

    Spin class not recommended. Flu and colds season, tons of people crammed into one small room with a fan blowing to help spread germs around.

    My friends, it is ultimately rideable.
    Saturday, 5:30 pm.
    Just returned from a walk on the Lincolnshire side, through a lot of Tangle of Trails, crossed the creek, over to the parking lot. I spoke briefly with a guy who had just finished a 3-hour ride, and his tires were clean.

    There may be a very few greasy, slickery spots here and there, so always watch out for that, but good to go. Even Church Hill was dry, with no seepage at the top.

    Enjoy.

    Nope. Starting to rain right now pretty good and hearing some rare winter thunderclaps. Roll for cover.

    Mr. JB has a friend who he knows from a r*#d riding club, who started doing CX in the last few years and bought a Santa Cruz Chameleon a few months ago. They had a WC riding date for 9 am this morning. Mr. JB makes the phone call about how it's a little on the cold side (super windy and a miserable 32 degrees), but Mr. CX guy has the bug, is really charged up for a ride and off they go to WC. They actually had a pretty good ride. Mr. JB looked like he had mild frostbite on his lower legs when he got home; they were bright red. A hot shower and lunch set everything right.

    The thunder was bizarre.

    Still wet today with a couple goons out. Saw a full kitted mtn roadie w/fluorescent yellow shoes (and socks?) that couldn't get up a 6" ledge at main cc. HA! These moments really make me love being out in nature!
