Trails are ready to ride

Just got back from an afternoon ride with Shockey and Byron and the trails are in pretty darn good shape.  There are some sections that are still muddy, so proceed with caution, but as a whole, they are good.

Trail maintenance master Nick Pearch has leaf blown all of Dunnings, so get out and ride.

Let The Frost Out
It’s that time of year again, please use common sense when it comes time to choose whether or not to hit the dirt.
Leaving pock marks from walking or ruts from riding requires time and energy to repair, and you know we’d rather use our resources to bring you even more high quality trail opportunities.
The world wide interwebs doesn’t reach everyone, so put the word to the streets, err trails…
