Exciting News! 

CAMBR will host a day of fun on Saturday prior to the meltdown race.

Come anytime after 10 am for a preride clinic, register for the race, check a big fleet of demo bikes, help set up, camp overnight at the start line! 

More details as they develop!

Can the trails be ridden on Saturday with our own personal bikes?  I just joined and believe it or not just found out about this course, even though I've driven past it a million times.  I plan on heading out that way Saturday morning and would like to get a taste of what it has to offer.  If I can bring my own bike, great, if not, that's fine too.

Yes, you can certainly ride your own bike.

Cool, looking forward to heading out there.

If you see a guy flailing wildly down the side of the hills, with a look of pure terror in his eyes, ignore him.  I meant to do that.

On an unrelated note, I hope out of all the people camping at the start line, none of them are heavy sleepers!

Brian,
As far as non-Meltdown activities go, there are always Wednesday night group rides out of Maple Lake East as well as Ride-n-Grills (see the CAMBr calender).  There are also rides called out here in the forums (but not too much now) and on the “Palos Riders” Facebook page.  Another way to really get to know the trails and other riders is to help out at a workday. See ya out there!

Are all trails good to ride today or are some closed for race prep.  I was planning on riding all of it today?

Go ride, nothing is closed, but do watch for trail workers doing final prep.

Well, I came, I saw, I rode, and I am truly impressed (and worn out).  Outstanding trails you guys have made here.  I truly enjoyed myself(and didn't crash while doing it).  I was lost most of the day, deep in the bowels of the woods, but eventually saw a trail that I had already rode and quickly figured how to get back.

Unfortunately I have to work Sunday so I can't race(and that may be a good thing for everyone else) but I will be back and I am planning to take a Wednesday off(I work afternoons) to actually take a proper tour of the place.

Ride safe and fast everyone!
