We had a slight break last Saturday so Amber and I rode the last 100k of the Five Rivers 300k. Stacy, Greg, and Martins rode my Four Rivers permanent which covers the first 200k of the Five Rivers. Between us we managed to put eyeballs on almost all the bike paths used by the Five Rivers.
At this time, two weeks before the event date, there are quite a lot of problems to deal with.
1. SART is flooded as it passes under Orangewood but it's easy to cross over the street.

The long term weather forecast shows about nine days of clear weather before the Five Rivers 300k which means all these issues will be resolved and I fully expect the entire route to be open. I was most concerned about long-term damage to the trails, but this doesn't seem to have happened.
For the Five Rivers 300k, we're currently expecting normal temps and wind with the chance of rain later in the day.
