    Barton Creek Greenbelt

    It was sprinkling when I left this morning, I live off Sweet 16... Depending on where you ride it'll be either hero or owl-shit slick. Pick your poison. Rode last night and it was strange, some rocks were covered with perspiration and very slick while others were dry as a bone and they'd be 10 feet apart. Generally speaking, IME, the south sides of E-W trails are the slickest in weather like this (I'm looking at you, Rattlesnake) but it's a pretty mixed bag across the GB lately with the humid air and temp fluctuations day/night.

    I always run one of these. It's a bad clothing choice but a good dental choice (it has come in handy one time). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SR8SE8/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They basically made little ramps so you can just ride up those few ledges that were a bit technical. Stravatards I'd guess, nobody else would take the time.

    2018 EB

    When I was trying to time my Friday ride to avoid commuter traffic, I threw my approximate times into a spreadsheet. This'll work for anyone who wants to know when they'll be arriving at different landmarks assuming that the % of the total trip for each section is relatively the same for everyone. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SAP_OOxad0ZXyHloGQXIX2AnwqKqWZqp3VtgeLv8vLk/edit?usp=sharing

    Yeah, but only near the beginning after that sketchy root turn thing

    I thought @Hakalugi was shitting me when he said I'd need to crawl under trees and tug my bike behind me by the handlebars. He wasn't. I felt good in Thumper and my time was the same as the year I almost laid down and went to sleep because of all the trees and crap. I didn't get lost, so it could be a lot worse

    Did the official route, all crossings etc. In the morning it was in the 40s but the creek was actually warmer than the air which was actually kinda nice (until you got out). The deepest crossing was on the way back, downstream of the chains/downstream of the rope swing were both almost waist high. It could have been my Garmin, but I'm not sure the route y'all posted has the new bits in Walnut (the berms part, the part that goes through the woods instead of powerline hill, the one that goes over the dam instead of the waterfall drop). I got a little lost before the main creek crossing trying to do some part @knifezilla showed me where you end up going backwards. The ride I did yesterday is the light orange, the 2018 EB in blue (dark orange is the new loop at the end of Duval that I skipped to get water): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1W36z_BTTsQbgwFPtCBVP6ZHOEbMvBedX&usp=sharing

    It's like you don't even know me behind this anon digital facade. My middle name is Shortcutsareforbitches for godsake. Hell, I made the map of the official route. But, yeah, I'm riding the whole thing. I rode the whole GB section last weekend; crossed the creek 7 times. Had to use the chain but that just adds time and keeps the same distance. The creek was at ~150 cfs then; it's at 99 right now and dropping about 15 a day.

    I'm starting at Twin Falls (I live right up the hill) so that's basically what I'm asking. Shifting the ride ~20 miles forwards moves me to Jester Mart but I'm not sure what's next. I only ride Walnut & the Shoal Creek stuff once a year. I can't really pick any place to stop between Jester and Home except the 7-11 at Mopac and Duval and that seems ~10 ish miles too short... Maybe I'll just do Jester and the 7-11?

    I'm thinking I may do the EB solo this Friday, leaving from my house. Question about water. I know I can get water at the CP fire station or Jester mart to replace the traditional CP angel stop, but where can I get water around Thumper? In the past I've just got lucky and found a guy standing in his yard and asked if I could use his spigot but I'd like a better plan than that. Also, since I'll be ~25 miles back (starting in the GB instead of WC) I guess I could push my water stop to WC - I could use the Shell station @ Duval and Mopac at that point, right?

    Is anything rideable?

    Kayaking anything in the lakes chain is suicide, but I'd think kayaking BC would be fine - it's just rain water. I was actually planning on running from LC to 360 tomorrow morning if it stays at or below 350cfs. Am I missing something, the creek isn't really all that high at this point from what I can see of all the monitoring stations: https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/river.php?wfo=ewx&wfoid=18703&riverid=203502&pt[]=144374&allpoints=144374&data[]=hydrograph&data[]=obs
