    The Sugarbottom trail system is closed for the remainder of the year (shotgun deer hunting season and the agreement with the Corps of Engineers). Should reopen after the first of the year for winter riding.

    Facebook ICORR site has the latest updates.

    we have a fat bike friday ride, starts at WoB around 6pm. we hit a good section of urban bits. other than that all singletrack is closed (hunting or thawing trails). Bev in CR can be rode in the wee morning hours. my pump track is even tarp'd up due to the weather, 40 degree nosnowmagendon iowa city is pretty slow right now biking wise.

    Sylvan Island in the QC is open. flat, twisty and a bit confusing to new riders, but no complaints after a ride there. lots of fun sections. having been there a handful of times i still get 'lost' (you are on an island, you cant get really lost).
