Rabbit Valley Mtn Bike Race Next Weekend

Saw a sign at RV this weekend that several of the main trails will be closed next weekend due to a mtn bike race. I would avoid the entire area as it will be a busy place.

Thanks Gee. I did not know that was planned. Good place to avoid.

No, the race is this weekend. Fat Tire fest is the next weekend. Rabbit Valley doesn't get many riders from the Fat Tire Fest, they mostly go to the Loma trails area.

Ummm, that's because you were blasting through there so fast that you couldn't have had time to read. I'm astounded you even recognized me.

This weekend will be busy out that way and there are some trail closures for the bike race. I would suggest avoiding the area, but you can call the BLM office if you would like a list of the specific trails that will be closed.

There are also links on the BLM site about other upcoming activities that you should check out before planning a trip in the area.

Good point, he might harbor some resentment from the submariner adventures in Pole Creek.

Ahhh, my Beemer...I've spent more time riding Uli's bike than mine this year. Good to have such a friend, eh?! I'm really hoping to have it together by the end of the month. See you at Chickfest.

Since DakarDoxy is female and rides a BMW, I think not! When you headed west again, Tim?
