kind of an older thread, but i think at the time of the posting of the above question, we had had some rain come through on a saturday night. the sunday ride rolled out as usual, but the roads were slick. i split off from the group with a couple guys to stay a bit ahead of the major pack. there were several sections of mudslides across the feeder road along 80 - our small pack caught this and were lucky enough to not go down.

at the first rest stop we found out that when the bigger group hit that slick patch, there was a wreck and an ambulance was called. we split off ahead of the group again, and at the end of lawson rd, another slick spot from mud/rain caused myself to slip and slide across the turn. that wreck was just me though, and i was fine aside from brusing and a nice cut up cheek. I did hear the group behind us had more wrecks, i just don't know where. it was a super slick day. the weather has been nutty up here...
