Mountain Bike Ride - Palos Hills

Who's up for early Sunday morning mountain bike ride in Palos Hills?

We went there last sunday, after that crazy storm, and was awesome.
Tons of mud = tons of fun.
We got lost a little, took us 40 minutes to find our car.

We found that monument out there, and now I'm glowing in the dark.

Let me know if you go when it's dry! I have some experience on muddy trails and a some mud is fun but too much stinks! I've some hours under my belt in the mud and it stinks. (???did i just repeat myself??? geez im tired)
Did Lutsen Mountain in MN in the mud and tore up 2 derailleurs.

My dad and I hit the trails often.. let me know!

Will see if the weather holds.

When we started at the morning it was muddy,
but later on trails where in very good shape.
Looks like Palos absorbs water very good.

I know it's bad, that was our first trip out there.

We where not alone out there, who did riding
that morning. CAMBR was there also,
they had work day and they where riding too.
So I don't feel super guilty.

I'd be up for it, but it looks like we'll see lots of rain today and tonight. 80% chance of heavy rain.

Like Vcook said, I don't ride trails that are muddy.

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

We'll see how the weather holds.
If we will get a lots of rain it is no go.
Some people from CAMBr will show up.
