My family of four will be in the Yorkville Oswego area camping the weekend of Memorial Day. We have two teenagers who are more active on their bikes, and me and my husband who (to be honest) are out of shape. Can you recommend a name of a trail in the area where we will not frustrate other mountain bikers but can get out and have a good time?

  Actually, we've been parking at the Henry DeTonte Woods lot. It's just west of the Red Gate lot.

See ya'll there!

Annnnd just like that, I can't come!! My wife remeinded me of a previous  (cycle related) volunteer engagement we have in our community tomorrow.
I'm sorry!! When's the next event. This is my year to give back to the trails that have given me so much enjoyment.

ALSO!!! I dunno who said the trails should be yellow, but they really shouldn't. They're still WAY TOO WET! And, they ALL need maintenance. So many need armouring and/or drainage. They're in bad shape. We also need to get a chain saw out to a few spots.

Thanks, and sorry again.,  Tim

Calling all women mtb racers or those interested: Half Acre Cycling and Skunkworks are asking the promoters at WEMS, the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Series, to add a women's category for Duo and Team.  Right now the ladies are scored with the guys.

We hope to provide them with the numbers that prove that women want to race and may even be encouraged to race if there were categories for them!

For newer mtb'rs the WEMS series is a lot of fun, low pressure yet competitive, especially if you go the duo and team route. You get to rest in between laps, cheer on your crew and if you do like HAC crew did last year (set up a tent and snack table) it's a great way to spend a day!

I do a bit of biking at Palos and other places, but my kids and some of their friends would like to get more into it.  Are there any classes or clinics in the area that they can take advantage of?  I see that REI offers some classes for ages 14+.

I did a search and found old posts for MTB 101 but nothing recent.

Anything else out there?

Hi Tim,

Glad to see that you'll be making it out to a workday.  We will be working on a new trail that is going to be one of the best trails at Palos.  CAMBr provides all the tools and buys lunch at the end of the day.  Here is a link to what to wear/bring and also a link to the waiver.  We have waivers at the workday but nice if you could have form already.

Never Mind!    I see it. That's the one.
So, which trail are we working on, and what do I need to bring?
This will be my first trail maintenance day.

Thanks everyone. Tim

4/19......    looks like .05" only

So I'm at my Proctologists office for a routine Prostate exam. The Dr is lubing up his gloved finger and I tell him I want him to use 2 fingers this time. He asks "why would you want that?" I reply "I may want a second opinion!!"    Pa-Ching!
