So it's been more than a few weeks and today was the day I was finally going to get back out on the trail. I pumped up the tires a bit more than usual because I haven't added any Stan's in like 5 months so I wanted to know if it was going to be an issue... it wasn't!
The parking lot was packed and so was the trail; I ran into quite a few people out there which is to be expected when we get weather like this in February. The trail itself was a little smushy still from the melting snow but the roots were relatively dry and the leaves were not an issue because the trail is so well ridden. No puddles out there, just some sticky mud.
I cut the ride short because I worked out the legs hard this week and it's also been awhile - better safe than sorry. All-in-all a great ride that left me with a huge smile on my face.
