Weather

We have put in many hours of work over the past month to maintain and add features we feel will be fun for all skill levels.  Not only have we worked on the additions we continue to work on trail conditions to make sure we have a great course throughout the year but especially for our guests coming for the 6/12 Hours of Winona this Saturday, September 13th.

With the rain we've had today and the potential for more rain on Wednesday please think before you head out to the trails for a "hot lap".  Not only does this apply for today and tomorrows weather but just a good general guideline to follow.  Ride Dirt Trails Not Mud Trails.

We hope to see you this weekend for another great event brought to you by KCV Cycling club and it's sponsors.

Just a friendly reminder that on Saturday September 13 KCV Cycling will be hosting the 6/12 hours of Winona.  This year we are raising money for the Market Street Project and our own Winona Lake Trails.
The course is designed to be beginner friendly with a shorter loop and will not have any Black sections in it.  It is a fun day to come and compete among your friends or just to enjoy a nice day hanging out in the trails.  Festivities start at noon on the 13th.  If you happen to be prepping for Iceman, what a great way to get some miles in before November 8th.

We have 8 different categories to choose from,  do it solo or with a team.  Make sure you come up with a good team name as well.  More information can be found on the KCV Cycling website.  Or if you want to just register just go over to our registration site.  We hope to see you all out there enjoying the day and competing for this years bragging rights.

Trail Report 8-28-14

Trails are in pretty good shape there are a few soupy and sandy spots but overall pretty well.  With the pending rain this weekend we are going to keep the trail status at Orange.

Also the tiny bridge after Mile 5 is a bit loose from rain washout.

Remember RIDE DIRT TRAILS NOT MUD TRAILS.  If you are leaving ruts its time to get on the road bike.

Sweet Darlin' Is Now Open (Skyway)

The Skyway project is now complete.  Ride to your hearts content and remember the top deck may be a little slick until we get some grip tape on it.  More pictures can be found here.

Thank you to the volunteers that helped out.  If you are interested in building cool stuff like this hit us up.





Check out this little film by our friend Mason Geiger featuring the new Skyway.  You can check him out here.

Trail Updates

Today we cleaned and cleared the trails for the upcoming NIMBA race this Sunday 8-17-14.  The trails are in great shape and they will be fast come race day.

CAUTION:  We rebuilt the area around stadium jump before mile marker 1.  If you are not familiar with this this is the tiny table top as you ride beside the race filed.  Take caution the first time you ride it.  If you carry your speed you could end up on the ground,  this is a black section by definition and if you go slow the first couple of times you will have it nailed.

For more information on the NIMBA race this Sunday click here.  Proceeds will go to the trails, thanks.

Guess What Another Tree Down

We have another tree down near Puke Point.  At least you are climbing and not descending.

Construction on Skyway Begins!

We know you have missed your favorite section of the trail all summer, Sweet Darlin' Loop.  Well good news is we have started the re-construction and construction of the new Skyway.  As many of you know this section gets closed whenever we have heavy rain fall due to the fact that the area is so low.  This construction project will help alleviate some of that.
