did the big loop counter clockwise out of the xc warming hut area then picked up the tail end of the race loop, then creekside and skunk. Fabulous conditions although I suppose the rain last night/this am are going to have changed things some. A group of trail runners was all I saw then someone jumped on the trail just as I was leaving.

Getting dirty is better than trying to go around wet spots :) Nothing wrong with that.

However, regardless of whether a race was held there or not, riding when it's wet is bad for the trails. I haven't been out there because it has been so wet so I don't know what it looks like since the races, but regardless, WNYMBA is responsible for the condition of the trails if we want them to stay open to bikes.

This year, if we want to ride, we're probably going to get dirty. And I'm one that avoids sensitive trails when their wet. I didn't feel as if I was causing much impact, especially when they just had a race there.

??? Wet and Muddy is pretty much the definition of non-sustainable unless you are talking an all-gravel trail like creekside.
