Depends on the snow/rain we are scheduled to get for the weekend.

I'll be in town this coming week. Should I throw the bike in the car to get a couple rides in? Or has winter returned?

Thanks!

Bring the bike and plan to ride early if it is frozen. Yankee is pretty sick when you can power past the sand traps

Did a two and a half hour ride today at Yankee 13 miles, removed several large trees, small trees and brush. There are a few spots with snow that are very slippery, no mud though. There is still a large tree down about the middle area of The Pines.

Any thoughts about riding Yankee on Saturday? Haven't ridden out there in years, living much closer now and been itching to get out there. From what I remember it was fairly sandy??? Will it be rideable with out doing any damage?

Yankee will be perfect this weekend. There was about an inch of snow on Sunday, we packed it down the first lap and it was melted away in spots by the second lap already...

After this warm up I'd expect it to be dry and fast.

I put in quite a bit of time on the trails there yesterday. The majority is in great shape. We did not get much rain here last night/today. Saturday looks to be good!
