Green Woodlands trail dayWe are super excited to announce that we'll be holding a spring cleanup day at Green Woodlands on Saturday, May 22nd at 8:30. We're meeting at the Squiggles parking lot and we'll break out from there depending on how many folks show up. Please bring leaf and metal rakes as well as hand saws. The goal will be to get the trails primed for the riding season by removing loose surface rocks. There is no dirt work that needs to be done so digging tools aren't necessary.

Green Woodlands has become a local mecca for the mountain bike community over the past few years and has never asked for anything in return - now is our chance to give back!!! Please come if you can, bring friends and family and we'll help get Green Woodlands ready for the summer of 2021!!!

Last thing - bring your bike and helmet, it may be possible to ride to some of the trail work locations! Hope to see you there! Spread the word!!!

Let me know if you have questions -

Is b lot open today?

Landmark Tract, known popularly as Boston Lot, is benefiting from the quickest mud season anyone can remember- open! However, plenty of trails are closed and are marked off with rope, as well as marked closed on trailforks. Trails may close again after Saturday, so make sure to click here for the latest trail status: uvmba.org/localtrails/lebanon/ Remember, *red means closed* on the map.

This early opening is a GIFT, and much earlier than we normally are able to open. Therefore, we ask even more than usual: please respect all closures.

We are keeping the DHMC entrance closed for now, please use the nature walk entrance and favoring the trails around Crafts is recommended.

The Craft side of the network is the best choice for now.

Fat bike season is over in Landmark / Boston Lot.

It was a good run- and extra long! Look for re-opening for "regular season" sometime in May.

We are looking for a few new directors for our board.

The UVMBA is currently seeking applications from members who may be interested in serving on the board of directors. We are looking for someone creative with a passion for mountain biking and multi-use trail stewardship. Skills in marketing, communications and social media would be an asset.

Responsibilities would include a 1-2 hour monthly board meeting (usually Wednesday evening at 6pm), 1-2 hours of sub-committee work per month as well as attending club events.

You can check out what we have been up to at uvmba.org/about/board-activity.

If you are interested in joining the board, please drop us a line at info@uvmba.org. Please be sure to highlight your skills and strengths as you tell us a little something about yourself. We look forward to hearing from you!

Daniel Vigneault Matt Johnson having a blast , getting the last, of the winter rides in.

Below is from the listserv just a few days ago (when it was very warm). To be in the know or exchange info with other UVMBA members, join here: groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/uvmba/join Are the trails at Landmark Tract / Boston Lot still open? It's complicated; but the simple answer is yes. Although it would probably not be advisable to run or bike in there for the next day or so. Wait till the temps are cooler and the ground is firm. Or, just wait until people you see out running are wearing more than one article of clothing at a time. We (the UVMBA board) decided to approach impending "big close" / 2021 mud season by allowing people to use the trails until mud becomes an issue damaging the longer term health of the year-round trails. Meaning, it's okay at this point if the "snow trails" become non-optimal, but the "dirt trails" must be protected. Since the snowpack's days are limited, we decided not to go through super fast cycling open/ closes. For the near future and up until spring closing, the best times will be morning following overnight freezing temps, and trail use should be avoided after mid-morning or so. Since all of this is "clear as mud" if you have questions or need more info, reply here, or write us at info@uvmba.org Use the Nature Walk parking lot at your own risk. If the gate closer to the condos is closed, it means the parking lot may not be passable, or escapable. This may still be the case if the gate is open.

(trails are temporarily closed- photo is from Saturday)

Get your last rides in (for now)! Snow is a coming, and the Boston Lot/ Landmark trail system will likely be closed starting Tues through most of next weekend. Check here (or trailforks) for the latest conditions, and please respect the closures. uvmba.org/localtrails/lebanon/

Snowshoeing always welcome and very much appreciated.

Thanks for the advice but I wasn't able to locate any latest (or even old) trail conditions on the link you provided. I love Trailforks. My only complaint is their process for reporting trail conditions is incredibly cumbersome to the point where, for all intents and purposes, Trailforks is not a viable resource for trail conditions.

Well packed, loose powder- a variety of trail conditions out there. But all good for Stuart Lander, heading out for a cold mid-morning ride in Boston Lot. ... See MoreSee Less
