Spring Has Sprung! Here's Where To Ride
April 23, 2018, 12:00 am

We've been getting a lot of questions from customers about where to ride now that sun is out and the temperatures are on the rise! Spring can be a tricky time of year to plan your outings, with trail conditions very dynamic until the last of the snow disappears. 

As we roll into May, the best riding remains thoroughly paved in much of Northern Michigan. The last snow storm in mid-April left well over a foot of snow on top of that remained from winter, and while the good temperatures have already put a big dent in the snow cover, it could be a while until we're in the woods. 

With two weeks until Mud, Sweat and Beers, much of the Vasa is still under a blanket of 3-8" of hard, crusty snow that has melted and refrozen multiple times. Volunteers from Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association, including board members and City Bike Shop team riders Mike Walters and Tom White, have been out shoveling the heaviest-hit sections to make sure they're as clear as possible. Getting the worst of the snowpack off the ground will help accelerate the melt and make the most of 60 degrees day early this week. Both the Vasa Pathways and Vasa Singletrack are almost all snow covered as of this weekend. 

Glacial Hills, located in Bellaire, is also under some considerable snow cover, with most of the locals expecting another two to three weeks until it's 100% clear. It's a similar story at the Cadillac Pathway, with some sections clear in the next few days, but a long turnaround expected until it's all rideable. 

The closest place to hit the trails might be the site of this weekend's race. The Rust Shaker is this Saturday, April 28 at Mid-Michigan Community College. The 12-mile laps use much of the college's trail system of fun, twisty and fast singletrack for one or two lap distances. Mike rode there this past weekend and while there are some piles of white stuff out in the woods, the trail itself it totally clear! 

Until the trails clear up, we've been sticking to pavement. Jeff was out on his Niner for some miles in Leelanau County, while members of the Cherry Capital Cycling Club met this past Sunday for a big roll on Old Mission Peninsula. The road surfaces on both peninsulas are clear of debris, with no construction or closures to take your off your favorite routes. It is just a little bit warmer in the County, with any wind off the water making Old Mission just a little bit more chilly. 

Make the most of the warmth and the sun and get out there! We'll keep you updated on City Bike Shop group riders and events all spring, summer, and fall, stay tuned!
