HOW-TO: WINTER PREP IN 10 STEPS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels. Photos by www.stephentripp.com and the DW staff. HOW-TO: WINTER PREP IN 10 STEPS Many off-road riders are fair-weather fliers. They might just hang out in the house when it is too hot or cold. Or, perhaps they choose a more appropriate sport for the temperature; for example, wakeboarding in the heat and snowboarding when there is slippery white stuff hiding the ground. If you decide not to take the easy way out, you have to be prepared. It is possible to ride in reasonable comfort when…

He was wondering if we wanted to use any of his photos from the event.…

WINTER RIDING FUN

-- Tis the season... -- By D. West We have moved into a new riding season now, and that is, of course, determined by the climate.
