Fatbike invasion!

tagged as Blog

Lot’s of fatbike news at the WMMBA meeting last night. Brent Walk and Fun Promotions will be holding open riding and races on Tuesdays nights at Pando, snow or no snow. Lights and fatbikes required. No mtb’s. $10, more info at www.funpromotions.com

Also Cannonsburg Ski Area has trimmed a wide path seperate from the singletrack trails so they can groom for fatbikes. A trail pass will be $5, everyone pays, fatbike or mtb, while they keep it groomed. Most likley mid-December to March. Important-no free riding in the winter at the Ski Area anymore. They are looking into rental for fatbikes and lights.

We will try grooming Wahlfield Park with a snowmobile this season. Open to all and free. We’ll keep you posted here if it works.

Last but not least, Fun Promotions and Winter Rush will each be holding fatbike race series this winter!

Rude riders

tagged as Blog

The county has received complaints from a neighbor that hikes Luton weekly and he is tired of some rude and fast riders that force him to jump off the trail. He also goes onto say that riders disobey the “Trails Closed when Muddy” signs. Please remember to yield to hikers and slower riders by slowing down and greeting them as you pass them while “sharing” the county trails. Read all signs and obey them please.
