Couple buddies and I want to head up north and get in some shredding. We were wondering what the dirt was looking like for next weekend?
Mendo and Ft. Bragg area eh? Can you give me a bit of extended info on the riding there?Save yourself over an hours worth of riding and hit up the stuff between Fort Bragg and Mendocino in the Jackson State Forest. Trust me, way better trails than the little riding that's out there on unParadise Royal.
We made the trek out there last year and was totally pissed. It's a loooooong way from anywhere and totally wasn't worth it. And that was riding it both directions that day to try and get some miles in.
Bahhh..I'm biased though i guess. Maybe go hit Paradise Royal one day, then come down and do a mid day ride in the true redwoods before headed back home. Then you can decide for yourself.
OH....and to your original question....I'm sure it has held up just fine. No reason to not go because of a little rain. That place is used to lots of rain.
Dirt at both places will be great. Racing at tish tang tomorrow...lines on DH should be grooved in beautifully. A little brush on part of roller, but TT is in great shape otherwise. Access is a tossup - They've been fixing a slide and the normal access to TT is closed. They should pave the road Friday, otherwise it's 45 min extra around Hawkins Bar way.
Royale is better when wet.
