Get some fresh air out on the trails!

The Junk Yard Dogs are please to announce that the trail system has started to dry enough for you to enjoy this spring. Please take full advantage of some incredible cycling trails but remember to be safe. We've added a few good reminders for you as you get out and enjoy:

  • Choose your routes carefully to avoid high traffic areas.
  • Try to ride on sidewalks or trails and avoid busy roads to reduce the odds of getting in an accident.
  • Be mindful about the surfaces you touch when you’re out. For instance, use your elbow to touch cross walk buttons instead of your hand.
  • Remember to bring your sports water bottle or bag of nuts with you so you don’t have to make an unnecessary refueling stop.
  • Always stay at least six feet away from other people you might pass, and be sure to give proper notice when passing so you don’t catch someone off guard. (Since we all seem to be a little on guard these days to begin with!)
  • So go ahead – ride your bike or hit up that running trail you’ve been meaning to visit. Just remember, we’re still in a pandemic and you still need to practice good social distancing, even outside.
