Winter Conditions? What is the meaning of this!

repost

Ah winter riding, such a conundrum when it comes to hitting the dirt. It’s not an exact science due to multiple factors (i.e. soil type, moisture content, grades, temperature, sun exposure, leaf cover, etc.) therefore black & white steadfast rules don’t really exist, it’s ultimately up to the best (and hopefully educated) judgment of each trail user. WinterConditions Do know this… if you’re leaving an impression on the trail more than a half inch deep, you are causing problems that will require volunteer time and attention; not cool. BeverlyRut People want to get out on the trails, a good thing! However, we address this problem every spring, throughout the “normal” riding season, and now in the winter… I could go on and on, but won’t. Instead, check out this regionally similar post with more details, it is one of the better / more accurate ones I’ve come across. And here is another from our FORC’n Quad Cities friends, who are awesome. Thank for reading and clicking every single link 🙂 Ken, the LAMBA guy who is really into trails

 

*edit / UPDATE:  Our friends to the south (ICORR) recently posted about Winter Conditions as well, very important as we enter the thaw – freeze cycles of spring… http://www.icorrmtb.org/?p=1455
