Greenway and trail are in good condition; me not so much. I had my 6th accident this morning. Nothing serious just more road rash. See accident log for details.

Greenway and trail are in  good shape. At 11:00 am today,  it was 85⁰ in the shady areas but 91⁰ in the sunny areas. Saw all the regular trail users; they don't let a little heat bother them.

If you are riding in this heat, good luck!

Greenway and trail are in good shape. In the last couple of days, on some sections of the greenway pressure ridges have popped up causing some unexpected bumps. The areas are in the shaded areas of the greenway so heat must not be the primary cause of the ridges.

It is HOT on the trails, even in the mornings and in the shade, so bring lots of water and drink it regularly, not just when you are thirsty.

Construction Status

Salem Lake. Other than parking, the construction does not affect bikers.
Greenway Detour. New end date for the highway construction is next spring, but don't get too happy; next year they start the replacement of the Reynolds Park Road bridge that crosses over the greenway. That means a new detour that will add a steep hill climb.

Greenway is in good shape; all the fords are dry. Trail is in good shape; the downed tree has been removed. Watch out for ruts on the trail; they keep getting bigger.

Overflow at the fords on the greenway is low enough that you can ride through without getting your feet wet. Although the tree that fell over the trail thursday night is still there, the city showed great concern for you safety by placing yellow caution tape on the limbs; just in case you weren't able to see the giant wall of green blocking the trail.

Some overflow at the fords on the greenway but you can easily ride through them. On the north side of the lake between the bridge and the big hill beside the dam, a tree has fallen over the trail but it is easy to ride under it.  On the south side of the lake, the east side of the big hill has washed out even more. It has deep ruts and in some places, the cinders have washed away exposing the rock base layer. You have to be VERY careful going down it unless you are on a mountain bike and can handle this type of terrain.

Unexpectedly, there was no water overflow on the greenway. Trail is in good shape. Trail traffic was normal but the parking lots were full with lots of cars parked on the side of the entrance road.

Within the next year, the one-mile gap between the 3-mile High Point Greenway and the 8-mile Jamestown Bicentennial Greenway will be completed. When the one-mile gap in the Greensboro section of the Bicentennial Greenway is completed, it will complete the connection to the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway and you will be able to ride trails from High Point to the Guildford Battle Ground Park (about 20 miles).
Plans are to connect the Greensboro end of the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway to downtown greenways, connect the Summerfield end of the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway to Triad Park in Kernersville, connect Triad Park to the Salem Lake Trail, and to extend the Market Place Mall end of the Salem Creek Greenway to Forsyth Technical College.
So, at some point in the future, you will be able to ride trails from Downtown Winston-Salem to downtown Greensboro or to downtown High point.
