It will use part of the MX track but should be mostly woods/single track.

I'm still on the fence because of how the weather has been. I'm 4 for 5 on being buried in the mud at a hangover race :censored:
Sounds tempting. What can be better than to exhaust yourself on a ride :lol2:

But it's too late to change plans now.
I'm gonna ride at the Cove tomorrow. Will be there around 11am :)

I will go to a hare scramble one day. Have to see how does it look like from inside :angel:

Maybe 3 years ago I went to Wicomico in Decmber with my noob friend to ride the woods trail.
After my buddy was wore out I was riding by myself. On the woods trail I found part of the harescramble course and let myself onto to for a little pre-ride test.
It was pretty awesome. Fun single track throught the woods.

However, the substrate is kinda soft and sandy. I can only imagine how insanely tore up the track gets with a few hundred MX bikes racing through. Especially if its wet

I've never been to the Cove. Where should I meet up at?

From the office straight ahead there's a sign "ATV". Then first left (or second? I remember there was a blue trail marker to the right on the crossroads where you have to turn left and I think a red marker to the parking lot) and there's a rocky parking lot. I'm gonna be in my white 2004 Toyota Sequoia with hitch hauler and a 350 KTM SixDays on it.

I was heading to the Hangover race today, but a dodgy brake caliper had me coming back. It unfucked itself about the time I got back to town so I figured I'd risk it and head to the Cove today.

Turns out I had Nobody to ride with :lol2:

We ran about 15 miles and called it a day. The lower section of the blue trail is a swampy disaster once you get clear of the rock garden and was just swallowing our bikes up. After getting past that I went to ride up the creek a bit to knock off the mud and found it was unexpectedly soft on the bottom and nearly got stuck there too :shrug:

Ford right? I just traded my F250 for that same reason. Both rears fucked up and twice the fronts left me stranded. Stupid shit. Nice day to ride with Nobody.

I woke up feeling like shit. Wound up riding the trails by the power lines in Burtonsville.

That blue trail was fun today :)
The hill climb was very nice to me today and I made it from the first attempt. Then Joe showed me a nice, but not fully legal Overlook :angel: Climb there was great fun too :)

And the mud and creek in the end made me laugh :lol2: No pics from there, unfortunately.

P.S.Let me know if there's a problem with pics. Hopefully you can see them.

Pics work for me, nice!


I was thinking this afternoon how nice the weather was and how dissappointed I felt having to be at some family holiday party...
