Yankee to add counter-clockwise days!

Some long awaited changes are finally happening at Yankee. The big news is that beginning on 15 August 16, we will begin alternating the direction of travel by day of the week. I know, shocker right? We’ve tried this out and we think it’s going to be a ton of fun and will add some challenges to an already challenging trail. It’s kinda like getting 13 miles of trail for free because everything looks so different going in the reverse direction.

The directions will be posted at all start and other remote entry locations of course but essentially, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday will follow the Yellow arrows in the reverse direction to what we’ve always done. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday will follow the Red arrows in the normal direction.

To make this a bit easier to sign, we’ve cut in a new connector trail to the warmup loop. The entry to the warmup loop is adjacent to the exit of the loop just west of the pit toilet in the parking lot. The current entry to the warmup loop and the exit to the main loop up near Yankee Springs road will be closed so all the entry and exit traffic will be at the west end of the parking lot. This eliminates having to ride up/down the driveway to enter the trails.

Sorry for the long winded post but this is a lot of information to get out in time for ya’ll to get used to the idea. Will the roll-out be perfect? Probably not but we’ll do our best to make it clean and clear. Your feedback will be much appreciated and we really hope you enjoy some new challenges at Yankee.

Urgent announcement To all Yankee Springs Time Trial racers!
 
Due to the heavy unusual snow accumulation this winter the trail, the campground and access points for emergency exits are all not going to be in condition to hold the race on April 13th.
 
Thus, the WMMBA and DNR has agreed to move the 25th Anniversary of the Yankee Springs Time Trial race to SUNDAY MAY 18th!
 
The date has been moved in Bikereg and the registration close will also be changed.  Additionally, you will now have until the end of April to order T-Shirts!
 
The WMMBA appreciates all the great support and your understanding with regards to trail conditions, safety and maintenance of the Yankee Springs rustic area grounds.  Sorry for an inconvenience this may have caused.  However, by May 18th we might have 70 degree temperatures!
 
Thanks again and see you on MAY 18!
