    The Cleveland National Forest does not close for rain.

    The gate at the bottom of Maple Springs may close during expected storms, but that is only a closure for motorized vehicles. Hiking / Biking still allowed.

    Maple/MW is great in the rain.

    Quite open! And rideable in the rain... Motorway, for some strange reason, is actually better when wet.

    Weds. Maple Springs/Motorway roll time depends on attendees. Generally flexible, but usually before 5:00.

    Thursday is normally out Blackstar Social. 4:30-5:00 roll time usually, but we don’t make that decision til we know who is attending.

    Wunderground has Laguna Hills getting 4" of rain next week... in addition to the .75" tonight!

    Guess we'll see which new developments shored up their slopes properly before slapping McMansions all over them!

    Word on the street is our trails around here are still too wet to ride. With the forecasted half inch of rain tonight I may be forced to do a road ride. I'll do it on the MTB and considerate it training for the Rwanda75. :thumbsup:

    Snow started last night in the Denver area. By tomorrow AM we should have 6” of new.

    Mountain biking sounds fun. I might do it again one day...

    I'm concerned about the possibility of the Maple Springs gate being left open due to the gov. shutdown. In the past when it has been open during inclement weather undesirable results have occurred.

    Close to 4" of rain predicted for this week. Looks like my MTB will be my gravel bike for this weekend and the next.

    Dropping down Hwy 62 into the Coachella Valley. Low snow level. PCE trailhead may have a dusting.

    Rained light but steady on us in the high desert last night. Woke up to frozen over car.
