Freeze Thaw

We have our first hard freeze of the year.  Remember to get out early while the trails are frozen and get off the trails as soon as they start to thaw!

Looks like temperatures in Central Indiana dipped below freezing last night.  Trails may be frozen enough to ride for a short period very early this morning.  But as they thaw they will be very soft and muddy.  Since it was a light freeze there is a chance trails could dry out enough to ride by evening.


Please avoid trails as they thaw.  The freeze expand water which softens the hard packed trail tread and leaves the tread soft and wet.
