T.H.O.R. TRAIL ALERT - FREEZE THAW CONDITIONS
Do Not Ride On Muddy TrailsDuring periods of freezing temperatures at night and warm sunny conditions during the day, trail conditions deteriorate significantly. Please stay off of muddy trails. Any time your bike tire leave an imprint in the dirt, the trails should be considered closed.
It will be very tempting to try to squeeze in an off-road ride during our warming temperatures the next few days, but please use extreme caution.
Damage to the trails, our relationship with the land managers, and your high dollar bike can occur if riders go out to ride in muddy conditions.
Due to the sun being low on the horizon during the winter months, it is very likely that southern exposures will be warm and/or muddy while northern slopes will be frosty and icy. This drastic difference in trail conditions may deceive riders into believing that the conditions may be acceptable, but only to turn very bad just around the next corner of the trail.
Please pass this on to all of your friends and fellow riders.
Please respect the trails and have a safe and happy weekend.
