Current St George Trail Conditions

Blogging is supposed to be dead in 2011…but luckily *my* blog doesn’t seem to be all the way there yet ;-)

St George had a really wet December. This is what happened when some real cold was added on to the wet.

I’ve never ever seen ice like this in Green Valley. I was slipping around pushing my bike over it. Cleats and ice no es ¬†bueno.

On Sunday Jan 2nd I went hunting all over the county and into the next state for some rideable dirt. Even the reliable roads out on the Arizona strip were too mucky for me. I’ve never been 100% shut out of dirt in St George before. That is a first after living here for 15 years!

Monday morning looked like this.

The pavement dropped into non-rideable status.

Yes I did break out the trainer!!

  1. Keep blogging!

    Trails have been really muddy here, so I’ve been on the road bike a lot. (We don’t have “winter”, we have “spring”, then summer, then spring, then summer.) If we get a 2 or 3 day dry spell, the trails really firm up and get that velcro quality. Now it’s a 5-day cold/bright/sunny spell, headed your way.

  2. Reminds me of what Missoula should be like. I love riding ice with my screw tires but right now we got so much snow I am off the bike pushing 90% of the time. Felling your pain. Cummon spring and may the dirt appear again.
