The ground is frozen solid and the snow is pretty much gone. Get out and ride before the mid March through April thaw/rain sets in.

Conditions at KB are also prime today and there is EDGE box derby along with the one day sale.

I will be at work all day :cry:

Forgot to post this:

A couple Saturdays ago I was riding the snow covered trails at Sprague and was confronted a couple times by the park caretaker. He first stopped me as I was pulling my bike off the rack in the warming hut lot to let me know that there was absolutely no riding permitted on the XC ski trails; "all sports are segregated". I explained that I was only here for the singletrack and would stay off the other sections of the park. On my merry way. After a couple hours, I stopped at the hut to re-fuel and dry off, luckily passing the caretaker on my way to the hut who was plowing the lot. He came in to the hut to ask "did you hear what I said!?", to inform me that he "would call the Sheriff if it happened again", and to state a few false accusations. He saw me come down the 10' section doubletrack that is the uphill start of the XC ski trail and the trail head for the singletrack. It took every ounce of energy to keep a cool head as this guy vented about how sports are segregated at the park, bikes destroy XC ski tracks (they really do), mixing sports can injure people, skiers have had a shitty season, he knows I'm riding the wrong trails (not really), and how I didn't listen to him. I politely corrected some of his falsities and told him that I would spread the word to fellow riders about the segregation of sports at the park.

FELLOW RIDERS: Snow is on the way this weekend, and I know the caretaker will be out there along with many winter adventurists trying to fit 3 months of lost time into 3 hours. If you ride the park during the winter, be conscious of the other sports that are going on in the park, and please try to keep a cool a cool head if you run into this guy - he is only looking out for all park goers collectively.

Thanks,
-TSW

I went there Sunday for the first time and had a great time, there were a few wet spots but overall the trails were in really good shape. I've never been somewhere so full of roots though, holy cow.

p.s. Thanks to those who blew the leaves off the trails, that was awesome!

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
