    Except for the extra little north loop, which is muddy and wet in the low sections.
    There's nothing natural about an off-road bike trail.

    Actually, you may find an occasional damp spot....including the main entrance along the Luce Line. Ride through, not around. Dirty bikes suck. Wide trails suck more.


    All Theo sections area open.


    With pretty much zero rain in the current forecast this looks like the week we have been waiting for in the land of Theo.


    The dirty ribbons of pleasure are calling. Put down your internet viewing device and answer the call.

    Details:  Like all the other trails.....happy that the monsoon season is over but it's going to take a day or two for it to dry out enough to re-open.

    Please stay off until the trail crew re-opens which we will post here.

    Details:  Bookoo rain and flashy stuff from the sky in the Land of Theo as I type.


    Please consider all Theo sections Closed.


    Based on the current weather guess from the weather guessers, we're guessing this may likely be the case for much of the coming week.


    For today....the Midwest Mountaineering Outdoor Expo continues through the day....and its dry in there.


    Stop by the MORC table and check out all that is happening in the way of Metro mountain biking. They might even hook you up with a new cool new MORC sticker...or three....if your not at all bashful like myself.


    Lots to learn about at the Expo in general and some great deals on out door gear.

    Details:  Theo was checked early this morning. I wanted to give it just a little more time to let the sun do it's thing.

    Calling it tacky but there will be some damp spots.

    Ride through the damp spots and not around. Dirty bikes suck. Wide trails suck more.

    All Theo sections are open.

    It will be another one of those narrow windows of opportunity. More rain starting tonight and into much of the week based on the word from the weather guessers.

    Get some while the getting is great!

    Details:  Well, we hope you got out and got some during that very short window of opportunity.

    It is now rainy profusely in the land of Theo and we are closed.

    Trail Condition: Wet Do Not Ride
    Date Posted: 04-19-2016 @ 05:58 AM

    Details:  With rain overnight and this morning, the trail is too wet to ride. Please give the trail some time to dry. It usually takes 18-24 hours after the rain stops for the trail to be rideable. We will post updates as conditions improve. Rain is a good thing as we are below average for rainfall this month and that can create dry, loose and dusty conditions. Thank you.


    Pretty words borrowed from the nice folks at Carver.

    Details:  Rode all sections this morning, fair amount of grippy tacky goodness.

    Lot of dry areas and even some sandy/loose areas.

    Great conditions, have fun!

    Details:  Redundant post, but it's worth reiterating that the trail is still squishy, muddy, and closed.

    Details:  I just got home from checking the trail. It's muddy and remains closed. It will take a few more days to dry out.

    Details:  Theo will be checked today but there is 99.72589% chance it will remain closed.


    Precipitation + huge temperature swings in the forecast...and rain on Sunday....are a huge doggie downer.


    Please plan to get your paved thing on this weekend.
