***Bone Bender Postponed***

The official word from the trail boss....

Well folks, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this latest round of rain just put us over the top on soaking the trails and making them un-rideable for this coming weekend. Sorry but we will have to postpone the Bonebender MTB race until the scheduled make up date of April 18th comes around.

I am just as bummed as you are about this but the volunteers who build and maintain all these sweet trails will appreciate your respect of the trails by not wanting to damage them with a race in muddy conditions.

Thanks for your understanding and I look forward to seeing all of you at the Bonebender MTB race on April 18th!

John Harter,

Trail Manager Smithville Lake Trails

I'm as bummed as anyone having planned a whole weekend in KC visiting friends and such. But I've gotta say, thanks for pulling the plug this early versus trying to wait it out until the last minute as it gives me options for other things now and lets me reschedule with a lot less headache. See you in April!

I am as bummed at anyone, but the trails just got hammered this week with 5 inches of snow + 4 inches of rain. It just wouldn't be fun to be out for 3 or 6 hours in these slimy conditions. Thanks for making the call and hopefully we will have perfect conditions in April!
