took this from Earthriders forum: Nice to know before you head out of Joetown for a ride..
So, you’re stuck in rush hour traffic, hoping to get out on your favorite trails before dark, and you’re wondering what the trail conditions are like?
Well, wonder no more – Earth Riders MTB Club has hooked up a Twitter feed to the trail conditions information they provide on their forums (http://forums.earthriders.com) for all the metro area trails.
Now, when the trail status is updated on the forums, KcTrailsStatus will tweet the conditions, for example:
#SMP CLOSED: Not Rideable (ptooi)
To get connected, go to http://twitter.com and follow KcTrailsStatus – its direct URL is http://twitter.com/KcTrailsStatus. As with any Twitter account, you can subscribe to an RSS feed, elect to receive SMS messages, etc.
