I had my first ride at Elm Creek this past weekend. Can't believe it has taken me this long to ride such a fun trail!...fast singletrack with sharp turns and a technical section that is something to behold. Kudos to the trail maintenance crew as it's obvious they put a lot of time and effort into making this trail flow. The parking lot was surprisingly jammed packed with bikers ready to rock the trail. I wondered if this was normal for Elm Creek because of its stellar singletrack or if it was because Lebanon, Murphy and Theo were all closed Sunday afternoon.
Lucky for us, our weather stays tame this week. Daytime highs stay slightly cooler than average with the high humidity holding well to our south. The only viable chance for rain will be on Friday.

New Fixit Stations
The Greenway just got upgraded. Earlier this month the Midtown Greenway Coalition announced that Dero had donated two (permanent) fixit stations for public use along the Greenway. Awesome! One is on Kennilworth and the other is on Colfax near the Bryant Ramp. Have you used a fixit station yet?
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
