    How many of you actually ride trails through out the year?

    Hello,

    How many of you go up on to snowy trails and ride them? My bike doesnt do to well in snow beause it has 1.8 inch wide tires and is really slippery. Just wondering.... I am really bummed out it is becoming winter! BTW I live in the Sandy area.

    I generally try to ride the BST trails (especially Dry Creek) a few times during the winter. A few days after a storm the trail will be well packed by hikers, and if the conditions are good it can be good with just about any tire option.

I tend to pick up snowboarding on weekends in dec through feb, but will work my bike in at least once a week.

    Yep it's been tramatic down here in StGeorge not being able to ride whenever we feel like it. I've managed two rides one on sat. one on sun. between storms over in paradise canyon. This trail is mostly rock so tends to dry off pretty fast.
