Let's Groom Sweet Single Track
posted 01.01.19

Bikers: To create sweet single track to ride this winter, consider going out with a couple riding buddies and snowshoe your favorite trail. Shoeshoeing does a pretty good job of creating ridable singletrack. Snowshoers: Help out your biking friends by snowshoeing.

One pass down the center, one to the left, and another to the right will do some nice packing. This works especially well when it is warm out. After this freezes, the result is a nice ridable singletrack.

E-bike Use on Moscow Mtn?
posted 01.01.19

Q: Are there rules about e-bike use on Moscow Mtn trails?

A: Currently there are no specific rules for e-bike use on Moscow Mtn trails. Ultimately, it is the decision of our gracious landowners. On first glance, e-bikes have an electric motor so they may be considered motorized. Currently, no motorized vehicle use is allowed on trails. However, MAMBA's board recognizes that there are different classes of e-bikes that provide a legal distinction between a bicycle with motors (pedal assist) and motorized vehicles that are prohibited from many trail systems. The board is in the process of putting together unbiased information that we can provide to the landowners to help them to make a more informed decision.
