Mountain Biking Saturday May 13th, 3:30pm, Bullfrog Lake

Mountain Biking on Saturday, May 13th.

Those of you who party on Friday night or have to work Saturday morning, this is the ride for you!
Meet at Pulaski Woods at 3:30 PM.

Bring your Preparation H.

Brews in Willow Springs if you'd like afterwards.

Directions:
From I-55, exit at LaGrange Road (Route 45) south. After a mile, turn right onto Archer Ave and go south for about 3 miles. Past the cemetary, turn left on 95th Street (east). Go past the next stop sign, then take the next right onto Wolf Road. The MTB Staging Area is in Pulaski Woods #2, which is the third grove on your left.

From I-294, exit at 95th St. Go west about six miles to Wolf Road. It is between Flavin Road and Archer Ave. Turn left and head to the third grove on your left.

or...
From Archer Ave, go east on 95th St (which is just south of the cemetary on Archer) a short stretch to Wolf Rd. Take a right into the preserve. Or, you can take 95th St from LaGrange Rd or I-294 and turn left onto Wolf Rd (just past Maple Lake). The staging area is in the third lot on your left.

May 12th is a Friday and Sat the 13th is Kelly's Tech Day

Next time for sure.

Mods, please edit to reflect "May 13th"

Damn, I work until 2:30 that day. Too bad you guys can't push this back a little so I can come.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Rachael, the weather forecast isn't looking so good. It looks like we have a 50-70% chance of rain from now through Sunday night. At this rate the trails are going to be messy.

You two are hilarious.

Rachael's right, I can't go any farther due to work, though the forecast for MI and WI is just the same as it is here.

What kind of meds are you on, Nick? They sound more fun that the typical stuff.

It's no problem about the name spelling Kris.

And it looks like the ride is cancelled. Shitty weather, shitty trails. Shit.
