Quite possibly the finest mountain bike weather in St. Louis today that you'd find anywhere. And the trail conditions were perfect! Except....lots of users. Not many mountain bikers, although I did see the DRJ guys. Mostly, horses and hikers. The horse back riders were very cordial, however. I had to wait for three different sets of them in the ten mile loop (clockwise, anti-race direction), and nothing but smiles and "have-a-nice-day". The strange obstruction of the day was on the Dogwood, only 1/4 from being done....35-40 walkers on the trail. Mostly teenagers, well-behaved, with a few adults thrown in. That wasn't a bad interaction either, as they were more than willing to let me pass, albeit slowly. Right now, I own the Strava KOM for that loop in that direction. I'm sure as soon as Chris Ploch finds out, he'll knock 7 or 8 minutes off that. Maybe 9.
