Great advice and well stated!




"Nope, sorry. It'll be a number of weeks at this point.

This is the time of year when trails become unridable and we all have to have a bit of patience. Many of the trails around (and including) River Bends are built on clay, and the top layer becomes super sloppy until the ground thaws and the water can drain out. Riding this time of year is particularly bad for the trails, as it ruts them up and then the ruts dry into place. This leads to a bunch of erosion, isn't fun to ride on, and causes a lot of work.[/quote]"

If anyone out there is contemplating "Is River Bends close be being ridable?" The answer is most certainly NO
