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.

Meet by the shipping container. We are going to clear debris that has fallen on Phase 5.

Hope to see you there!

You'll get lots of opinions on this, but here's how I ride. I put away my regular trail bikes and pull out the fatty. It has studded Dillinger's. I've ridden on frozen lakes and completely iced over ski trails. Never a problem. I'm not fast to begin with, but I do reduce speed just because I like winter riding a lot. The number of cyclists drops way down this time of year and you can find great solitude.

Can anyone provide tips and tricks for winter trail enjoyment? Tires recommended (eg, studs)? What trails are ride-able what to watch out for. How does one avoid serious crashes what time is best. What is the winter riding population what is %peed reduction on snow in tight technical situations?

Some of us are new to winter riding and could use some more details in the condition reports. Also please use plain language because some slang terms are not universally understood. Thanks.

Thanks Dave. Appreciate the inside update and I know the process is long for trail approval (seen it since the TURF days).

Figured planning needs to be strategic, but I haven't been able to get to annual/board meetings (long drive from Rogers Park) to see whether a green/beginner trail at the core was part of future strategy or not.

Trail expansion and improvements have been great accomplishments by CAMBr -  Old friends who have moved away before this CAMBr second era of progress would find it hard to recognize the trails we ride today.
