I’m sure this thread has been covered before it seems very relevant again for the winter season.
takes deep breathe and practices calming techniques
Was just in Spider mid-morning. A large group of guys on reg mtbs were finishing up a ride as were a of group of trail runners. Btwn the two groups they put a solid thrashing on the trails that had been setting up nicely this week.
Many of the trails went from reasonably fast to nearly unrideable.
I mentioned to the trail runners that they should use snowshoes until it hardens up which elicited the “I know, right! It was up to our knees in places! Thanks for the trails!”
Some of the mtb’ers are on this site, some are very experienced riders. I suspect all know better.
This is applicable anywhere that we’re riding on prepared winter trails- the Railyard, Bird Sanctuary, Spider, etc…if it looks like you’re wrecking it for everyone else go find a more appropriate place to ride.
Just don’t be these guys.
