Fat Bikes Damage Soft Trails Too.

Real mountain bikers don't ride in the mud and rip up the trails, they respect the trails and the trail crews and wait for them to dry or freeze.
Thanks,
The Trail Crews

If I hear one more half wit say "Fat bikes don't damage soft trails", I'm going to go non-linear."  

Fat bikes push mud out of low spots just like other bikes, they just don't make as deep of ruts. Please wait for the trails to freeze before you slay some single track.

It's that time of year again when the trails are very susceptible to damage.

Please stay off the muddy trails.  It causes tremendous damage that has to be fixed by volunteers in the spring.

Thanks

It is very soft out there.  Please don't RIDE, RUN, OR WALK on the trails.  Let them freeze up before you head out.

Thanks.
