Does our sudden Spring weather have you pulling the mountain bike out and tuning it up for the season? Remember to give those trails some time to thaw out. Riding too soon, before the frost has a chance to come out of the ground, will cause damage to the trails (ruts, etc.). Some of our trail systems can officially be closed (LOWES CREEK) and others cannot. So whether or not a trail system is marked CLOSED to allow the spring thaw it will always bring you good bike karma if you do not ride the trails too soon or when they are too wet. THANK YOU!
Lowes Creek County Park is closed and we will let everyone know as soon as it is officially opened up for the season.
CORBA recently played host to the Dion Snowshoes 2015 US National Snowshoe Championships at Lowes Creek County Park. Although we didn’t have quite as much snow as we would have liked, it turned out to be an awesome event. 326 racers participated in six races over two days, coming from all parts of the United States, making it the 2nd largest Nationals event in its 15-year history.
The race organizing committee and volunteers heard from many racers just how beautiful Lowes Creek County Park is and how great the trails are. In fact, Mr. Dion Snowshoes himself, who races extensively around the country, said that with a few more inches of snow our course would have been the best he’s ever competed on. High praise indeed! Of course, we already know how lucky we are to have local trails like these, but it sure is nice to hear from so many seasoned veterans.
We could go on, but instead we’ll just share this video by race partner SkyMotion Media:
