Thanks to limited traffic, some sunshine, and a nice breeze on Thursday, the trails dried out well, and thus we’re opening them up. So get out and enjoy them.
The greenery is really coming in, so remember that hikers/walkers/runners travel in opposite direction of mountain bikers (whom follow the green and black arrows). Always use proper trail etiquette, be courteous and announce yourself, so the other trail users know you are there – especially in blind corners.
Please note that with the ever changing spring weather and conditions, remember that the off-road trails are closed no matter what the website posts and signs say when it is raining. If a storm rolls in while you are on the trails, please exit the trails as soon as possible, to prevent any dangerous situations for the trail user, and any damage to the trails.
Also note that in two weeks we will be hosting the Fat & Skinny Tire Fest and the DINO Series Mountain Bike Race. The off-road trails will begin to get marked on Friday, May 20 and will be closed to all users, except for those that have registered for the DINO Series races on Saturday until 4pm. The trails will then be open to the public.
If you would like to try your hand at mountain bike racing, there has never been a better time…This year, DINO has made mountain bike racing more accessible to the first-timer and occasional racer. There is NO racing license or one day permit required. Racers who don’t have a USA Cycling license will save $5 at every DINO race compared to prior years. Registration and check in are also going to be simpler for everyone. If you’ve never raced, or only race on occasion, now is the time to jump into a DINO Mountain Bike Series race. First-time racers can race free, in DINO’s “Intro” division – designed specifically for rookie racers!
Either way, we hope to see all of you out and about enjoying one of the funnest and most beneficial, family-friendly events in our community – Fat & Skinny Tire Fest 13 – May 20-22, 2016.
