by David Newcomer / Customer Service Manager
I've been saying for the last few years that you can safely mountain bike in Colorado through Thanksgiving. I don't know that this has always been true, but lately it sure is.
And the roads are open for business all year. Which is great, because I am not a fan of the trainer. We're blessed with a lot of sunshine. So, while we may be hit with some good storms from time to time, the conditions don't generally persist more than three days or so.
There are still a few things to be prepared for, though. And as I've said before, they can sneak up on you if you're not out there constantly. If you thought it was time to hang up the bike for a bit, but find you're ready to ride, here are a few things to consider.
Winter riding really can be fun and rewarding. Memorable, too, when you come out on top when conditions are challenging! Take care out there and I'll see you on the road.
