    When do you start riding again?

    Just wondering when you guys in the Calgary area usually start up mountain biking again? (for those of us who don't like riding in the snow)

    New to biking last year so this is my first having to deal with winter biker blues. lol.

    Full blown riding with no mud? May, if we are lucky.

    Depends on the weather

    Nose Hill can easily be ready in late March of April

    Canmore Benchlands even earlier...

    Or it could all be bad till June.

    ... or July, if you want mud-free riding. June is usually a wet month.

    I'm getting base training in right now on my mtb by riding the roads around Springbank and Bragg Creek (too much rubble on the shoulders for a road bike unless you have heavy tires or like fixing flats).
    Screw the shuttle, I'm riding to the top. You're all worthless and weak!!!
