This morning–as I’ve been done nearly every day for the past couple of weeks–I stopped to see if the Mayhoffer-Singletree Trail had been reopened. This trail, along with several others, has been closed for almost a month due to heavy flood damage. Today was different, though. Much to my surprise, the barriers were gone, and the trail was open. Some minor damage was still visible, but for the most part, the trail was just like I remembered it. I wasn’t able to claim first tracks, but I was probably the only person riding on 25mm slicks.
Just received an email from one of GRAVELBIKE’s readers announcing the Dirty 40 Race and Rasputitsa Spring Classic Ride. The 40 rolls through some of Vermont’s most scenic landscapes, and features 40 miles of gravel. The event helps raise funds for the Mary E. Wright Halo Foundation. Click here for more details.
One of GRAVELBIKE’s long-time readers is organizing a mixed-terrain 100K ride in Redlands,California, on March 15th. Sounds like it’ll be a good time. Check it out here.
