Gassing up before heading to Free Soil NCT Trailhead for the first trail ride of the Trailhead Bike Shop Wednesday night shop ride. Come join us.
Shoreline Cycling Club members have been out in full force over the past ten days or so as the trails have dried out. The Ludington School Forest trails are as good as they get. Timber Creek to and including the Outer Loop at Big M have been ridden. And some parts south of Timber Creek towards 56th have been cleaned. Thanks to all members and riders who’ve jumped in to clean up after a long snowy winter. After riding the Outer Loop last night there is a big downed beech tree on the Bullwacker Downhill and an old dead tree over the trail in the northwest corner towards Road Monkey.
If you are out there working on trails use this form to record your trail hours.
We cut and moved a tree from the trail that was at the top of the NCT climb after crossing the Little Manistee so that one is gone.
A note about spring riding. Be sure to give the trails some time to dry out after rains. They dry fast with our sandy soils here in West Michigan but riding muddy and wet trails can leave lasting tire tracks.
See you at the shop or on the trails.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video is worth 10x that. The weather is shaping up to be perfect for Fat Tires from about Sunday morning (3/23/14) on. We’ve got a couple of Fat Tires left in stock including a used 2013 Mukluk 2. Lightly used with an anxious seller. Make an offer. Retail was $2300 and it has about 60 miles on it.
