There is a real good chance of running into snow up top. Might want to talk to the guys at one of the shuttle services for details.

This is cross posted in the Women specific forum which didn't have a ton of traffic so I posted here as well:

Hi all,

For the last 3 years I have been  Adventure Racing and have always done all male teams but the open and competitive division are mixed and I'd like to see if any women here would be interested in trying it out.  The races are 12 hours to multi-day and the race I have next is a 12 hour race in Quincy, Il on 3/23.  There is a large bike component from single track to gravel trail to logging road or open road.  There is also running, trekking, and canoeing...all of which happen based upon your group's ability to navigate efficiently with map/compass.  I have the most experience in my group and am joined with a friend who is transitioning from Triathlons and a friend who does more climbing/mountaineering so we are a bit of a mixed bag. 

If interested let me know and we can talk off-line. 

Thanks,

PM

No.  It is not something the land manager is interested in having at Palos and Palos is not really the right terrain for downhill riding.

If you want to hit some gap jumps check out The Garden or Andreas Park.  Both have nice jump lines.

Good question.
1. Make sure the trail is dry or frozen. Riding on muddy trails causes a lot of damage that has to be repaired later by the trail workers.
2. If it gets a bit below freezing overnight, the trails should be ok, for a very early morning ride.  If it gets in the upper 20s and the sun is shining on a trail, it will melt. See #1 and you b=need to head out to the multi-track and back to the parking lot.  Or just ride the multi-track.
3. We all used to ride one bike all year long, so your bike will work fine. BUT, if it is icy your odds of crashing are good and if the snow is deep, it has to be packed down, or forget about it.

Winter riding is fun and you will warm up in a hurry, but your feet and fingers will get cold, so be ready for that. And you will learn as you go.  Pro-tip for keeping your feet warm plastic flat pedals and winter boots.

Hope to see you there!
