Bone dry all the way to 7th yesterday. I hit 7th to Leppard to CC to Kirkford. The new berms on CC are awesome - just what that trail needs. The new swoops on Kirkford are super tight for my bike so I have to take them pretty slow but they're still really fun to ride (and definitely a nice change from the chunder chute they replaced). Who needs snow when trails are dry and perfect?

Has anyone ever tried pedalling up Kirkford or CC?

I think that it's too bad that the old line couldn't have been maintained and the new section added as an alternative line. I liked the little hit off the log.

I have been told that the trail builder thought that the old line just wasn't sustainable.

7th to Pipeline was a great choice in today's heavy rain. Both were draining well and are basically un-erodable. Also, nice work on the new wood in the middle section of Pipeline.

16 degrees and sunny when I got out of the car today. Pretty epic January riding.

Tree down near the start of upper Skull, before the round-the-tree drop, as of Saturday am (31st). Appeared to be of natural causes. Apologies for the tardy post.

I'm coming down from Whistler for the night and am looking to sneak in a quick ride. Anybody know the conditions on Expresso? Would it be included on the wet weather approved list?

Thanks!

Anything rideable right now, or is it all water logged? Want to ride something after school. Pipeline probably pretty OK?

Hi There
thinking of coming out to the Shore for a quick road trip (from Alberta), Over all, are things in pretty good shape? It looks like there has been a fair amount of sun and warm weather. Would it be better in the Fraser Valley?
Thanks

Thanks for the gold on 7th. Trail is prime. Me, riding like a noob today, not so much.

Better than Alberta? Yes! ;)

It's all really good here right now, but can change to rain in a heartbeat.

neat new bit of trail parallel the bp east of ladies. curious what the primary intention(s) were. definitely a smoother option; no complaints.

I've been riding by that for a while wondering if it was open. Anyone?

^there's nothing to indicate otherwise. open at both ends [HTML_REMOVED] buff in between. part of an initiative to reduce biker / hiker friction on a high volume trail perhaps?

I'd only glanced, so you're likely right. Was just wanting confirmation.
