I’m sad Dirt Merch has been dead most of the year.

Really mother fucking sad.

I'm sorry you are sad. just remember that the brightest sunshine comes after the darkest rain. 

speaking of rain, if it could stop doing that for a while, we could get dirt merchant open...

What are your thoughts on riding there right now?

I was going to do some repairs in our place before the renters come, and was wondering if it was worth bringing the bike. 

Is creekside closed yet?

Park is great today, still pretty wet in spots but who cares. You can ride the creekside trails but gondola isn't running so plan accordingly.

Will the creekside Gondola be open on the weekends at all? I’d love to get a RDS lap in and not have to ride all the back to the village on flat ground...

The Creekside gondola is closed for the season, unfortunately.  The last day of operation for the summer was September 16th.

So Jesus has lived up to him promising me we would have some summer days.

It’s all up to you guys now.  Don’t let Jesus down.

What trails have been rebuilt/buffed out recently? Coming up to ride valley trails this weekend but wouldn't mind sneaking in a couple park laps on my trail bike as I have a couple days left on my card.

What’s the expected closure time on the Duffman consortium? Those are some of my favorite trails and it’d be sad to not be able to ride them the rest of the season. Looks like closure due to a much needed (in my opinion) rehabilitation project on sidetrack?

Damn. Was hoping. That trail needs to be laid to rest I suppose. Does anyone actually like it? 

So no duffman/No Duff/MRT/Renegade for the rest of the season then? Shit. Some of my very favorite trails and the main reason I go to Garbo apart from OG Sin/In Deep

The rocky stuff was beautiful. So clean, so sticky. A-line was ace, as always.

But my warmup lap on CIU was painful. Holes big enough to swallow a 26" front tire and brake bumps as hard as concrete.

Tuesday I did a ceremonial lap for my 20th day at the park, then went back to my place to finish painting the walls. 

Can't wait for next week for my final days. After that, May can't come soon enough.

dirt is so damn good right now, tomorrow will be fantastic. 

opened dirt merchant to rutabaga today. a bit wet in a spot or two and obviously soft but fun indeed. for anyone on the fence about coming tomorrow, it'll likely close again Sunday when the monsoons return.
