Who turned off the winter machine?? It’s incredible to think about how much snow was still on the ground this time last week. We hope you got to show some skin early this week and are now extra amped for an amazing spring. Everything is “closed” for now, but if this sunshine keeps up that’ll change before ya know it! Thanks for riding along with us this winter and spending thousands of dark, cold, sunny, snowy, glorious hours out at the trails. Be sure to thank a groomer if you see them!

Welcome to March! Don’t let the sunshine fool you, the cold temps at night are keeping things “rideable” as long as you’re up for an adventure (and/or have studded tires)! Get out there in the morning or after things have firmed up at night (#dontbeaturd) to get some more rides in before spring-thaw-no-go time.

Wow, what a change a week can make! Here we are, still a ton of snow, but highs of 30-40+ degrees with no sign of letting up. However, most nights are cooling off to offer some adventurous sunrise rides if you’re up for it! Also, remember, we’re in Michigan and it’s not even March yet. Don’t call it a comeback!

Snow and a bit of a warmup mean fantastic conditions ahead!

While the trails may be perfect right now,

we have a warm weekend ahead which is a recipe for trail damage! Please stay off the trails if the weather warms up to the point where tires are leaving ruts. Want to dive deeper into freeze/thaw? MMBA and Bicycling.com both have excellent, detailed posts about it.

Itching to get some extra use out of that OECC season pass parking permit? Missing the glory that is 13 miles of old school, lung-busting XC trail?
