We didn't pre-reg either so we can sign in together. Looking to get there by 7 am.

Anyone planning on riding in the coming days? Hopefully the weather will clear up by Sunday, but I've never been to Pachaug so unsure of the conditions there...

I'm going to Pachaug tomorrow. I'll be at Mt Misery at 10. If you're nit there by 10, don't cry about getting left behind.

conditions will range from easy to muddy to rocky, as usual. Don't expect dry boots at the end of the day. You can count on a challenging and tiring ride.

Monday is the right call. Give the loop a bit of time to dry out and the temps to come up some. Riding soaked all day when it's this cool sucks.

I've never ridden there, but I was thinking starting the loop at Mt. Misery parking area at around 10 am.
