    I did a hike yesterday afternoon at Case and it was about the same 75% dry, and 25% shallow mud. I guess everyone has to make their own decisions, but I'm going to wait another week. I had a group ride scheduled for this morning, but cancelled it. Its not a mudfest, but the trails would be much better off if we wait one more week.

    I sometimes feel like it just doesn't matter 'cause I know Case will be mobbed with riders today, but I guess I'll be guilt free and complain later on about all the ruts caused by inconsiderate riders

    Sounds like a good call. Besides, there's some sweet spring skiing to be had today.

    Took a ride to pick up lunch at the deli in Heritage Village. I stopped and had another sess behind Friendly's. They ground out the stumps I was playing with last time. but I did find a cool sequence of rocks to roll. Felt good to loosen up the legs after Sundays 100 min lax thriller. What's up Pat?!!!!?

    I think you're the only person I've ever heard of that stops to session at Friendly's. It's cool, I just find it funny.

    Some gnarly terrain back there. Hey, it makes a 2 mile round trip bike ride a little more interesting.

    PS - The parking lot is in the rear of the building. The diners do not look out at my fat a$$ rolling junk. Heritage Village is a complex and has lots of little drives and lots in the back. MTB stoke!!!

    He probably gets the silly silly ice cream.

    I hear ya, if I'm ever in the area I'll have to hit up the Friendly's. Our Friendly's is surrounded by houses, you're so lucky. Maybe I'll start hitting up the steep hill behind our Taco Bell. This could be a whole new chapter in urban biking; chain restaurant sessioning...

    We can do an AZ Waldo/Friendly's ride and then crush some beers and burgers at my place.

    Roll call...

    Wish I could. I assume the trails are drying out nicely?
