  • Avoid riding on tracks that are too full of moisture/water (tire mud ruts are extremely difficult to repair)
  • Hills and coulees can be difficult to ride when the mud is thick or deep at the bottom, or drainage crossings (avoid getting into a coulee you can’t get out of)
  • Wash for seasonal washouts
