Right now the National Weather Service is calling for a chance of showers. But...we have a week's worth of changes coming :wink:

The masochist in me is still thinking about the 80, even with the dearth of base miles this year.

Saturday: Showers likely, mainly before 8am. Cloudy, with a high near 61. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Saturday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52.

Correction:

Saturday Night: Chance of campfires, craft beers, weary legs and friends new and old.

If you like backcountry riding and adventure you won't regret it..

My car is all packed. I just need to load the bike in the AM.

The National Weather Service is calling for a crap-tastic 100% chance of rain tomorrow night. At least it looks like it will improve Saturday.

I'm driving up. What the h*ll. I might not get another chance. Only problem is which bike to bring: SS with crossmarks or geared with big ol' 2.35 nevegals.I'm assuming mud, so the gears might not be a great idea.

If you bring the SS, you might want to gear it down. Average speed is like 5-6mph :shock: I will be running a 34 x 22 on my VooDoo ss
