    When @Hakalugi and I did it, we both started ~1/2 through the GB (both on SS as well). I think the only thing about the ride that's particularly hard is Thumper and, with all the rain we've had it's gonna be a booger slick nightmare. I think Thumper will prevail no matter when you hit it over the ride. I too, would allow it.

    Just looking at the creek and not counting that fact that most of the trails are saturated: The creek is running around 300cfs right now (hit 4k on the 27th, 1.8k on the 2nd). It's been dropping ~50cfs a day over the last 4 days or so. The cfs drop slows down as it nears 200, but I'd expect the creek to be running around 200ish on Saturday barring any more rain... ...however, there is a 100% chance of rain on Friday, predicting about 1/2 inch. Depending on where it falls, the creek will be somewhere between 200 and 400 on Saturday morning. Not lethal, but I don't cross the dam over ~350 (note here that riding across the dam when it's flowing at all is a bit tarded). So, depending on how much rain we get Friday the creek cfs might be ok. When J and I did the EB in November the creek was ~175. I got the boys a bit wet crossing at EZ, but there was no danger. The organizers called the ride when the creek was under 200, so just going on the cfs this ride is off. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/tx/nwis/uv/?site_no=08155300&PARAmeter_cd=00065,00060

    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.

    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?
