We don’t know about you but we are tired of all this rain we are having. Yes it is a 3 day weekend and we know you want to ride, so do we. However the trails are in decent shape and we would like to keep them that way.
Stay tuned for more information we will try to get back out there in the next day or so to check it out.
On Friday May 20th we will be marking the course for the 2nd Annual Into the Woods We Go Trail Run. If you see tape up please do not tear it down it needs to be in place for Saturdays race.
The course will be run all backwards for the run. If you would like to ride we would ask that you ride it backwards but be cautious of people gearing up and pre-running the course.
Saturday the Winona Lake Trails will be closed from 6am until the race is over sometime early afternoon. For more information you can visit the KCV website here.
We have a large tree down on the trails around mile marker 6. Please do not make a new path around the tree as we do not want to widen the trails.
A group from the Trail Committee will be out this evening to get it cleaned up.
This weekend is the 8th annual Fat and Skinny Tire Fest. The trails will be closed on Saturday May, 14th for registered racers through DINO. All kinds of race categories so if you want to race come on out. registration can be found here.
We have received over 3 inches of rain in the last couple of weeks but today I was really amazed at how good the trails are.
With that being said here are a few locations to watch out for that are really wet.
1. Wagoner Trail is soupy along the creek side in three sections. Please ride with caution and DON’T WIDEN THE TRAIL.
2. There is one spot at the back of Patience that is really wet. Stay within the yellow tape and DON’T WIDEN THE TRAIL.
3. After you come down the hill from Dead Mans Curve there is a large puddle from the flooding again please DON’T WIDEN THE TRAIL.
5. Heading into Blue the little bridge before the climb is pretty soft DON’T WIDEN THE TRAIL.
6. Once you get into Rock Garden there is another puddle please DON’T WIDEN THE TRAIL.
Thank you for helping us keep the trail as natural as possible remember to always wear your helmet.

The trails are in surprisingly good shape for as early as it is. There are some areas that are slick still but not too bad.
REMEMBER we don’t want to widen the trail any more than what it is in spots. thanks for help us keep the trail maintained.
