I think I will ride oat hill tomorrow and ride straight to the Calistoga spa hot springs when I'm finished to thaw out.

I was just looking at the forecast and I was wondering if the fire roads near China Camp would be rideable. I guess if I'm gung ho tomorrow I'll let people know. The thought of having to clean up the bike afterwards is getting me lazy though.

Even if anything was rideable, I would only bring out my HT to have less to clean.... problem is i'm too lazy to swap out the SB8s on that bike to have any kind of traction. Gym it is!!

You rode CC today? The standard loop or the back? I didn't think it'd drain that well.
I started on the front from the tree trunk up to ridge fire rd. then left all the way up ridge over to the backside. The trails actually weren't too bad, and the fire roads were very rideable. It was kinda fun blasting through the puddles:) the clean up after kinda sucked but it was well worth it!

Sea Otter recon mission at Fort Ord with Team Social Pace on Saturday.
Oddly, it seems that the rain has missed Monterey the last couple of days. It rained all day yesterday in Santa Cruz (with more on the way today) but these storms have been just grazing points south.

The storm so far has barely even hit south Coe as well - 0.07 inches (while headquarters has 0.47 inches). Meanwhile 5+ inches at Demo (and 10 inches near Boulder Creek). Where I am in San Jose, it hasn't even been wet enough to get the ground beneath some trees.

Of course that just means the next storm might hit harder to the south!

I did today

I did a rain ride today......without the rain.

This was Montana De Oro this morning. SLO has gotten NOTHING this week, it's beyond dusty right now. Some rain would actually be appreciated, but until then.......

I got super depressed from lack of saddle time so forced myself to ride today. St. Joes in Los Gatos. It sucked and then it sucked again. Soupy mess...guess it will be trail building time around here for a little while.

I see what you mean now. I drove over there and it was full on heavy drizzle. Sunny in San Jose but raining all day in Los Gatos!

Anywhere along the hills is going to be wet.
