In an effort to help trail users know trail conditions before driving to the trail head, we’ve created a new “Trail Conditions” page on our website. Simply click on “Trail Conditions” under “Trails” at the top of our website or go to wmmba.org/trail-conditions/. If the trail is green you’re good to go, if it’s red stay home. We will especially be updating these during the spring thaw when trails are at their most vulnerable.

Really, who wants to sit inside talking about riding? Spring is finally here so…let’s ride!
Come out to the Merrell trail head, get a couple loops in, then hang out afterwards with your riding buddies!
We’ll have burgers & brat’s starting about 7:30pm, we’ll tell you about some of the great things the chapter has coming up this summer…
… Plus, Velocity will be giving away a set of Blunt 35s, black, 29er, 32H rims as a door prize!
Also, Central District Cycle will be giving away two disc brake service packages! Cool!
So, bring your bike, your buddies, your favorite beverages, something to sit on and (if you like) your favorite dish for sharing (not required, but welcomed)!
It’s going to be a great evening so, spread the word…see you there!
