Winter Riding

6 posts in this topic

I figured I would start a new thread instead of polluting the thread about the Strib Article.

After this debacle has been released, it makes me concerned that the trails which were open through last winter, may now be closed.

My opinions, there are many beneifts to winter riding.

1) NO BUGS

2) NO DUST

3) Solid Ground, less damage

4) Scenery is just as good on a perfect winter day

5) No matter what the thermometer says, it doesn't feel that cold with the proper gear

6) Fewer riders

What are your likes/dislikes or your experiences with winter riding? Do you have more to add to the list? Even if it's just across the lake.

I haven't got to do it yet. I'm hoping to get out this year. I think it would be a blast. I have the arctic armour and use my wheeler on the ice and I'm fine so taking a look at the forest in the winter would be awesome.

Nemadji was posted open through the winter last year. We'll have to keep an eye on the DNR site for trail closures this winter to see if they leave it open again.

No clean up, just bring it in the heated garage to melt away and it's good as new, no half hour clean up jobs required. Winter riding also means that I'm probably icefishing...which is a good thing.

The cool weather and the challenge is what gets me. Plus I don't have to wash my machine when I get home. Just let it melt off in the garage.
