There has been a mistake. We are not the high desert this year. We are snow country. And cold.
The good news is that you can ride here on bare dirt right now. The bad news is that the bare dirt is only ridable when it is frozen. And the bare dirt is a stretch of trail 6 feet long with ice and snow at either end that continues for a random distance until the next stretch of bare dirt.
Dry dirt... That may be another matter. Could be a week if a big hot wind starts blowing tomorrow. More likely to be later in February. But more likely it will do whatever it wants and we'll just have adjust ourselves to meet the challenge.
