Competition heats up at Findley State Park this week. (Thorn MTB Trail Conditions included)

Because of late-summer’s drier weather, this is always the best time of the year for the Thorn Mountain Bike Trail at Findley State Park in Wellington, Ohio. The trail is in the best shape all year, trees have been cleared and events are heating up. Tuesday night, August 2, the North Coast Mountain Bikers weekly time trials continue. Trials start at the beach parking lot. Start anytime between 5:30–7pm. Cost is a donation of $6. Proceeds go to the NCMTB club to maintain the Thorn Trail. The trials have seen great success this year so join in the fun with lots of fellow competitors.
