Based on the rain we've had so far today in Santa Cruz, things should be just fine at UCSC. It has really only misted in town. I can't speak to Demo.

If we get more rain tonight, that could change.

They're supposed to get about a half inch tonight, which I think would make it a bit muddy for a few days. SC was pretty much perfect on Sunday (sorry).

Santa Cruz got a lot of rain in the last 10 hours or so. It was pretty heavy at times. Not a good day to ride here. Maybe tomorrow or Friday if it lets up.

We keep getting rain, then "decent" warmish day. I think seepage zones will be slick annoyances, but exposed areas probably pretty decent.

If my backyard were any measure (it's not, because I am in the flat banana belt), it would be hero dirt++ right now.

Did anyone ride Wilder/UC today? Thoughts on conditions?

Brief recon today in Pogonip (hiking), Emma looks like it should be OK tomorrow. I am debating non-seep/non-shady areas of Wilder (with a group). We may opt for a road ride instead. I'm leaving it up to the group.

Err, likely too wet @ most of the usual haunts: tear up the most entertaining trails and/or tear up your drivetrain too. As a CPSA [cycling public service announcement] I'm going suggest these places are great for riding after a rain.........

Fort Ord
Big Basin
Butano
Kennedy
El Sereno
Parts of Nisene Marks

Or, gasp, a road ride or cx ride [my plan for the day]

I rode parts of lower UC (from the main campus) on the CX rig. Overall good conditions, but definite puddles. I can see where Wilder would be a mess. A good day for me.

Riding familiar trails on a fully rigid bike was fun. As I commented elsewhere...Strava congratulated me on my slowest ride on Star Wars to date.
