CCRT mostly in good shape

As I live in Orleans, I jumped on the chance to do a little bit of riding on the CCRT today:

From Orleans (Shaw's plaza) to just before the Eastham underpass (Arnold's) and back. Fun!
Only other biker was a local grocery-shopper.

The trail conditions are OK, some light debris, easily avoidable sporadic pine needle/oak leaf patches, but no snow or ice.
Wind picked on the way back, I squeezed by right before some rain.

This will be my "home track" this year, as I really need the drop 15 lbs or so.

BTW, if anybody absolutely needs to know the general CCRT conditions on a given day/weekend, I can hop on the truck and go take a look in 5 minutes.
Chime in as needed..!

'Know that stretch as well as the rest very well. Formed my love for cycling there as well as more awesome memories than I can remember. Assuming the Cape doesn't see much snow I'm probably heading down in a few weeks for an off season ride of the CCRT.
