Trail Ramblings: Give Hills A Chance.

I hope you all got out to enjoy the magnificent day we had yesterday, after the rainy chill of Saturday. I decided to take a spin through Pioneers Park, as I hadn’t been out there in a while. I do like to reacquaint myself every so often with the hills out there and enjoy the beauty of the park and it’s animals while I’m at it. The trails are much improved if you haven’t been […]

Trail Ramblings: Guilty Pleasures

We know it’s really not supposed to be 70 degrees in early March, but doesn’t it feel good? If you haven’t already been riding this winter, I recommend getting your bike out of storage to take advantage of these beautiful spring-like days. The Mopac still has a few wet spots in the predictable areas between 176th and 164th, marked with a cone, and just east of the tunnel at 136th. The trails have been full […]
