Been off of the mtb for 6 months - since my wipe out at Steven's Pass. Finally got out today. New bike. New body. Great ride. GL6 was pretty hammered. I don't mind the trail getting rougher(in fact this is an improvement from my perspective). What I don't like, and what does annoy me is the frothy coating of slop and extra wide mud holes from all of the traffic. I vote for turning GL6 into a no-shuttle descent - this would limit the traffic. We are going to end up armoring some sections of that trail. That rant aside, it was wet and sloppy and the sun even came out for a few. It was good to be in Capitol Forest, on a mountain bike.
