Just because it’s gross and wet outside doesn’t mean you have to stop riding you mountain bike this winter. Well, that is if you live in a place where the trails aren’t covered in feet of snow from November through May. For those of us lucky enough to live (or at least spend time in) areas like the PNW or the Southeast, riding on sloppy and wet winter days is a great way to improve bike handling skills and make our riding that much better when things get fast and loose in the dryer months of the year.
