Do not give yourself or other mountain bikers a bad name by riding on trails during the spring thaw. The recent warm weather may be melting the snow, but the sub-surface layers of soil are still partially frozen. Trails are critically sensitive to erosion damage at this time.
Currently, water from the melting snow is unable to sink into the soil, so trail surfaces are muddy. Tire ruts help channel this water and contribute to erosion and muddy spots that can become long-term trail damage.
Please ride on pavement or gravel roads for a few more weeks while the trails properly thaw and dry out. A good rule of thumb is that when the earthworms begin to emerge, the ground is suitably thawed for trail activities. Help us keep trails open to mountain biking by riding in an environmentally sound manner.
If you want to ride and are unsure of the trail conditions, call the park where you would like to ride or check the MMBA bulletin board.
Calling all members and trail coordinators: this is your web site. Use it!
If you’re a trail coordinator looking for volunteers, a membershop wanting to promote an event for MMBA members, or someone else with pertinent information, send a message to Di_bear in the forum, or leave a message on the “Contact Us” page.
Let’s get the word out!
We are looking for a new chapter logo and you happen to be the right person for the job!
Feel free to submit your designs in the “Mid-State Logo” thread of the forum, where other details about what we’re looking for can also be found. Chapter members will vote to determine what the new logo will be.
The MMBA is also looking for 20th anniversary designs as well as new t-shirt designs. Winners will receive prizes for the statewide contests. Check out MMBA.org for more information.
