5-21-2015 – 3PM – Welcome to Mountain Biking in Mammoth Lakes. It was a gorgeous week for mountain biking here in the Mammoth Lakes area if you like clouds cold rain and hail. More of the same on tap the next few days with the snow line now up to Main Lodge.
The Bike Park opens this weekend on trails below Main, they will have the village bike shuttle up and running. PS Do not be jerk, ride slow down Canyon Blvd and stay on the right hand side of the road and off the side walks. lol Got my paint ball gun ready for the jerks who ride like morons!!!
