Bar tape wearing out? Shifting slightly off? Bottom bracket making noises? Broken spokes? Your bike probably shows some wear from last fall. It's time to think about getting back outside on your bike(s) and it's a perfect time to get ahead of the service rush at MGC.

The service guys are ready and waiting. Let's get things ready for your best outdoor riding year yet!

Scot

Public Service Announcement

Remember, when riding any groomed trails always be aware of what your tires are doing to the trail. Fatbikes with low pressure are always recommended (in some cases required) for these trails. A lot of time, effort and money go into maintaining them and the groom that is prepared can easily be damaged by walking (bootprints) or riding a skinny tire or even a fatbike tire with too much pressure as they can cut through the groom in the snow. This creates rutting that can remain soft or refreeze, leaving undesirable conditions that can last a long time. Please see the attached image from CAMBA and keep it in mind as you venture out to ride the trails.

If you're out riding, push yourself and your abilities, try to ride the edges of the entire groomed section of trail, not just down the middle. It also helps with the rut and firms up more of the trail for all to enjoy.

Thanks for your consideration and get out and enjoy this fresh snow!

Scot

Happy New Year!

Looks like we're in for a couple of fun outdoor rides Monday and Wednesday nights. Plan on leaving from Highpointe Park at 5:30 for a fatbike lap of the single-track.

Have a great week!

Scot

12/29/2022

Please spread the word: Stay off groomed single-track until the temps drop below freezing. Riding over-inflated tires on soft groom does a lot of damage to the trail. We're still early in the season so please stay off for long term health of the groomed snow packed trail.

Thanks!

Scot
