June 2015 Useletter – Bikenridge

Summer starts NOW!

budding aspens

The miracle of spring, sprung, in Breckenridge this week with budding florescent aspen leaves, the swell of tulip buds and spiky green grass.   We can now accept and move beyond the March-like weather that Mother Nature was so stubborn to give up for the crisp blue bird skies and 70 degree temps. Yes!  Weather in the mountains always keeps you guessing …

 Trail conditions as of May 29th were mixed on the Muddy Meter. Be sure to check thetrail conditions before you head out on the trails.

Consider some of the fun and scenic road rides from Breckenridge – Awesome!
