Great opening Youth Ride!

The young rippers were out in force Tuesday!

Conditions are still less than ideal but that’s spring for you. Nice work everyone for getting out and working on tech riding those slippery roots and squirmy corners. Gotta keep up with those coastal riders!

Thanks to all the Skookum Youth Leaders and looking forward to a great year of youth rides. 

Spring is here – know where to ride!

Spring has officially arrived and while the trails are FINALLY clear of snow, they are also super muddy in spots. Check out the Trailforks Reports for the latest conditions, and after you shred, fill out your own report and help out others!

 



Youth rides are starting!

The first ride will be Tuesday April 18 at 5:30 at South Canoe.

Make sure your tires are pumped up and your chain is lubed, gears and brakes are great too.  As usual we need everyone to sign a waiver form.
