I realize that there is no snow and that the weather forecast is not always accurate, BUT, I am still organizing a group ride this Sunday and would like to meet and ride with some fellow HCSer's.

When: Sunday, January 20th at 10am

Where: South Bend speedway staging area on SR2 in South Bend, Indiana. 2 miles west of the US31/20 bypass

Who: YOU!

NOTICE!!!!: If the snow conditions on the B-run are less than desireable, AND the snow conditions in Niles, MI are great(this happens alot), we will meet up in Niles at the M51 Staging area. It's only another 20 minutes north from the speedway. I can give very easy directions to that staging area.

I will also be informing everyone I rode with the last ride I was on about this ride. My last ride had 13 sleds. Sometimes you can have too many sleds, but with this type of trail system more sleds is not a problem.

We may ride to the Bungalow in Galien for lunch. Then??? New Buffalo to the Casino? Back to the South end of the trail? Maybe we'll ride south from the speedway first then head north?? Maybe we'll be in Niles?? Maybe we'll be pounding our heads against the wall again when we only get a mild dusting??? :wall:

Sound off on who's goin.

I thought i read that one of the parking areas on the niles trail was closed,does anyone know for sure. I,m looking to ride southbend or niles sunday snow permitting. M 51 staging area is where i usually park, when going to niles,sometimes i park at the baron lake parking area. I,m always interested in meeting new people to ride with. Maybe we will get the big one, lord knows we,re over due.

M-51 staging area is open as well as Barron Lake. Although, Barron lake is not an official staging area. The restaurant doesn't want people to unload in their parking lot anymore and the field next is not plowed. Hopefully I'll be in. Surprised this is how I found out about it??? (LakeEffectSledHead)... :poke:

How much snow are they calling for between now and sunday?[/b]
1-4" by Friday morning
4-8" more by Saturday morning
8-12" more by Sunday morning

These are estimates from John Dee. We've seen more than his forecase, as well as less.

At least one local meteorologists says he thinks we'll see more snow this round than the last one. The last one dumped over 22" on my house in two days. And I live on the trail.

There always is the chance that we'll get nothing. It has happened in the past.

Well Tony, it looks like I'm OUT. Wifeypoo reminded me that I had promised her that I would help her help out in the toddler room at church this Sunday a.m. I bagged on her last time this came up so this time I better be good. Dangit!

Well Muskie, you might not be missing anything anyway. The forecast has changed. We're still getting snow, but it might not be enough for a good ride.

everyone keep watchin.
