Trail Condition Update

The WMBC trail crew is is the process of prepping the Naughton venue for the season....we are still at least a couple weeks away from opening things up...It is still very wet and the frost is coming out of the ground on both the lower and upper sections.  The ski trails are also quite soft as the frost is deeper on these trails.  Please avoid riding the Naughton Trails for a couple more weeks. If you are out riding and there are long sections where you are leaving your mark, find another area to ride until it is dry.   If it's wet, let it set.  If it's dry, let'er fly.  Stay tuned for further updates.  We will have sections open for the Sudbury Bike/Vélo Fest on June 5th.

Trail Work Parties Planned

I know you are pining to ride, so use some of that energy to get the trails ready for the season. Reach Rusty at 705-919-1057 to find out were we are at on the trails. Bring leaf rakes, gloves, eye protection, water & snacks. Trails need to be raked, debris need to be removed, bridges need to go in and there are a couple big fallen trees to be cleared.
