MMCC Cup Sneak Peak and Bike Clinics

 JD pulled a mug from the kiln this a.m. and is offering up a sneak peak at one of the designs! Pretty sweet!  I should have them in hand by Thursday night and the distribution plan will be unveiled soon.
Also it's been brought to my attention that there is a bicycle safety class being offered in St. Cloud by the APO (Area Planning Organization) this is a great course (traffic skills 101) and is the prereq for the League Cycling Instructor (LCI) certification as per bicycle alliance of MN. Here's a page telling about TS101.

2011 MMCC Trail Supporters will get...

 Just got these pictures from JD Jorgenson, a local potter from St. Joseph.  He's making up the coffee mugs for this 2011 MMCC Trail Supporter/Membership Drive coming up.  Looking pretty awesome!
Yet to be stamped.

I'll get a link to the 2011 membership form up soon.  I have a feeling these mugs will go fast!  Faster than you can ride a lap of the North Loop!

Trail Update


River Bluffs - Single track is all open and generally in good shape.  A few small wet areas exist.  Ride through these areas not around them.  Conditions are 99% good.

North Loop - The majority of the system is very wet.  A portion of the trail is open.  Many sections however are closed off.  Please abide by all closures and detours and do not go around the tape or rope.  Further if you see rope or tape dangling from wind or other events please re-tie it.  When that section opens we will remove all of the tape.  Please also report any issues with down tape via email reply.  As a season reminder NO CYCLING ON THE SKI TRAIL AT ANY TIME.  We hope to open sections periodically as conditions allow and assess this routinely.  People not abiding by closures will delay opening since it stays wet longer.
