Anybody been up there lately? Has it packed down some. I've never really ridden through deep gravel before, does it behave like deep sand? Doesn't sound like a deal breaker either way though.

We are in for Friday and Maybe Saturday. Not sure if it matters since we won't be RSVPing for the BBQ at WhiteWater's . My wife has to work on Thursday, so I'll miss the ribs.

Ben & Julie rode 2 up chasing me into Trapper's Lake Lodge for lunch a few years ago in the deep marbles and had a hell of a time!! Rode out to Meeker for pavement all the way back around to Steamboat!!!
I'll ride it on Thursday and see how it is. I might reroute through the Williams Fork and Yellow Jacket if it's still squirrely

We aren't much for squirly stuff. Skittles don't do the stand on the pegs so hopefully nothing too drastic.

I have pre-run all the sections except the Flat Tops which I will do soon. All the two-ups will have a warm and fuzzy feeling in their buttocks when they ride these routes.

Warm and Fuzzy sounds awesome compared to tight and puckered. Thanks for the recon!
