Dirt Biking Season Has Begun


DIRTY: Zac Patterson sits on top of Big Ridge astride his Suzuki 250. “It wasn’t too cold until the sun went down then it got chilly. And we definitely ran into quite a bit of snow, and because of that, we had to turn around.” Riding his dirt bike is one of Patterson’s favorite summer activities.

Spring motorbike riders up in the mountains can encounter snow, wind, and freezing rain that affects how long rides can last, but riders like those mentioned here are more than happy to brave the elements on their bikes.
