Current Trail Conditions

As every other mountain biker in our area I have recently had the bug to ride on the trails more than I can tell you.  In fact Tuesday just to be in the mountains I climbed up the dirt road below the North Ogden Divide. Is this the funnest ride in the entire world? No way, but I know that I can ride there even when its wet and not damage the road because its covered in rocks.  This is not the case with a lot of the other very cool trails we have in our area, I guess the point is be very careful where your riding this time of the year so were not the user group damaging the trails we love so much.  If it looks to muddy or your sinking in throw the towel in for the day, countless spring and summer days are just around the corner.

Trail Condidtions!

As a lot of you I have been riding quite a bit already and the trails that are ready have been amazing.  I was thinking though that in a year that has seen the popularity of fat tire bikes and good weather it is still important to remember that the trails that we all love a supper sensitive this time of the year.  I have been on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail North of 12th street for about a week and its stable for riding baring any other adverse weather.  It sounds like the Shoreline South of 12th street is still wet and should be avoided, as you guys are out on trails let us know how they look and we will post it up.

As far as trail conditions, if there are sections of the trail system that are in need of repair flip me a note and we will pass  it along proper channels or organize the work our selves if it is appropriate.  Welcome to another good year, we're excited like you all.

Spring Summer Info, Group Ride, And Thanks For A Great Sale!!

Welcome to the 2013 riding season.  Thanks again for a wonderful turn out to or annual spring sale.  We set up just a ton of folks with new bikes and gear, looks like everyone is planning on a big riding season.

Group rides will start Wednesday May 1st.  We will meet at 6:00p.m. and leave at 6:30p.m. Plan on us riding every Wednesday through out the season unless there is a holiday or bad weather.  I will post any cancellations on the web site and on the Face Book account by 4:30p.m. the day of the ride.

Trails are starting to open up and be ride able as I type this.  Most of the Bonneville shoreline is ride able.  There may be a few muddy spots where it would be better to walk your bike rather than ride it.  If the trail looks muddy do everyone including yourself a favor and stay off it until its dry, damage done to trail systems this time of the year take forever to undo through the rest of the season and it give us a bad rap with trail managers.

I will post up trail digs as soon as I get them scheduled. Thanks for picking us as your bike store, we're excited for a great season.
