I ended up riding tonight despite the rain, my reasoning being that it wasn't raining hard so it would be a while before the rain reached the ground in the woods. Turns out I made the right call. I thought I'd be solo, but Woodcore rode up to my car right when I was getting ready, his plans had changed. We ended up having a really good ride, though I almost gave myself a heart attack trying to keep up with Mountainman and Ad-rock at the beginning of the ride, luckily for me they ended up peeling off to the waterfall while we continued on the truck trail. I was shot at that point already, but luckily I caught a second wind not too long afterwards and we ended up riding a longer loop then originally planned.
Our route was Jug>Scoville twisties>Truck trail>across 69 up to the high road via the Sandy and Chuck bypass (I don't know what the rest of that trail is called)>High road>2 bears>Stony hill rd>up Kitchen bypass>Surveyor trail>down Fat kid>Cemetery twisties>done.
That was about 9.3 miles in under 2 hours, maybe closer to 1.5? Either way it was a great rip and I'm pumped that I got out, thanks for the company and the post ride beer Woodcore!
