    • Curtis, Yes, please feel free to clear deadfall and branches straying into the trail. We like to have people come to a trail maintenance once or twice so we all clean and clear the trails the same way. We’d love to have you come out to the meetings as well. It’s always nice to meet the people we share the trails with. Thanks for the offer to help out! Meetings are the first Monday of the month at 6:30 at BlueBaker on University. Trail Maintenance is the Saturday after the meeting at 8:00 in the parking lot.

      • have trails dried up enough to ride. just got back from Colorado and not sure what shape they are in..thanks

      • Hey Curtis,
        The got a pretty good soaking last week and more rain today so they will probably need a few more days to dry out. Hopefully, the rain will hold out for the rest of this week!

    • Hey Curtis, Sorry for the slow response. The trails are mostly dry now. It is best to avoid the water logged sections of Peaceful Wood and the Camel Humps.

  1. Where would we check to know whether the trails are open or closed? Is it posted and updated regularly somewhere or do we just give it a few days to dry out after bad weather?

    • We try to keep the website up to date, but for the most up to date information you can always email one of the officers or join our list-serve.

    • Hi Michael,

      Thanks for you message. Millican Reserve is privately owned and the land owners want to restrict trail usage to partner clubs and organizations, such as BVMBA and the High School MTB Team, in order to limit their liability and to have some accountability if there are any problems. Because of this the trails are unlikely to be open to individuals who are not affiliated with one of the partner clubs. I am sure that they would also be happy to work with other clubs and organizations.

      We are looking at the possibility of having an associate member status, where there would be no club service requirement, that would allow people to use these trails. Once developed this should be a great trail system, and there are many other benefits to BVMBA membership so I would encourage people who ride regularly to join us and help build the trails:)

  2. Hey just looking to join the group and was wondering who I should contact to sign up and get updates on when to ride and maintain the trails

    • Hey Derek,

      Great the best way would be to either come to a group ride on a Tuesday night at 6pm or a meeting (first Monday of the month).

      There is also a link to our Yahoo group on this page. We use this listserv to keep in touch.

      If you have any problems signing on you can email me at sec@bvmba.net

      Hope to see you out on the trails sometime,

      Jonathan
