Great Weekend at the Kids' Trail Tour 2013

posted Aug 21, 2013, 2:00 AM by Peter Fellman   [ updated Aug 21, 2013, 2:09 AM ]

We had fantastic weather for the Kids' Trail Tour!
A bit of mid-week rain followed by cool temperatures made for all-around great riding and camping conditions.  The expanded menu for Saturday's dinner was a hit and everyone left the drawing with a prize (or two).  Skippy made a dramatic entrance with candy for all!  The Kids' Skills Challenge was fun for riders and spectators alike.  We closed Saturday with a well-attended community campfire, followed by another beautiful day of riding on Sunday.  Thanks, everyone, who attended the event!

Trail Access Improved

posted Mar 8, 2013, 11:43 PM by Peter Fellman   [ updated Mar 16, 2013, 12:36 PM ]

Unlicensed ORV's permitted at Rites of Spring!  

We just received some exciting news regarding trail access along roadways for this year's event: 

Special permission has been granted to allow event participants to ride unlicensed motorcycles and ORVs between Kestelwoods Campground and the trail without a headlight and taillight. Children under 12 are also permitted to ride between the campground and trail, under direct adult supervision.  

Note that we have a private trail that connects the staging area to Kesselwoods Campground. This new roadway permission allows the entire family to ride together to the main trail system.  

Also note there will be marked kids trail options on private property, allowing families to ride directly from the staging areas without encountering any public roads.
